Left an ice and snow covered lake on April 10, and returned to green grass, wide open water, and guys fishing on April 20. Came up 25 past Buffalo and saw anglers there, same on 55 as I passed Maple Lake, also on Pleasant, and on Clearwater -- didn't talk to any anglers, as I wanted to get home after 2500 miles on the road.

Travel notes -- Saw too many trailers with defective tail lights. Coho, some rainbow, and brown trout are hitting in Lake Michigan off Illinois and Indiana (just starting in SE Wis). White bass, LM, and catfish are running strong in Ark. (Incidentally, Ark. newspapers always run outdoors stories in the sports section).

Finally, cost of regular gas -- high of $1.69 in Chicago area, low of $1.21 in the Ozarks of Missouri. Came home to find $1.44 in Annandale.

Clayton what kind of work do you do that takes you all over the country. I read your posts all winter, perhaps I missed something. Bill Turck St Cloud

I'm retired from my full-time position (college professor), but continue in my part-time vocation/avocation -- outdoors writing.

In a typical year I'll have half a dozen fishing licenses from various states, and maybe two or three hunting licenses. Last year included the Outer Banks of North Carolina, but since it is ocean fishing I didn't need a license for that.

Thanks for your interest.

Thanks for info, D-man. I've got my little 14 Lund ready to launch, and may get to it myself. Today I had to write all day, but watched the snow fall from morning until about 6 p.m.

Water level is not bad, compared with last year, but we need to start with a fairly high level if we want to save props thru the season -- I still want the prop concession on Clearwater.
