It’s been a long, cold, snowy winter and we are anxiously waiting for the first real stretch of spring weather. The abundant snow has mostly melted away in the lower elevations, leaving plenty of mud, puddles and raging creeks and rivers. Good time of the year to look at the many waterfalls in the area. We will try and get out on the backroads to look for some of our favorite waterfalls off the beaten path as soon as the rain lets up a little.
We will also be getting out kayak fishing for big springtime smallmouth bass as soon as the water in the Columbia River gets warm enough. There are a lot of questions regarding this season’s fishing here in the Columbia River Gorge, especially with the salmon and steelhead fishing. After last season’s poor showing for the fall salmon run and the Trump administration’s plan for the environment and outdoors, there are a lot of anxious fishermen.
We here at WatermanAtWork are going through some considerable professional and personal circumstances that may result in lower than normal blog posting for a period of time. We’ve got some real cool plans for the future that will result in lots of exciting and new adventures, but between now and then, there may be some gaps, so we hope you will bear with us until we get going with future plans.
