It is official, the ice is off at blue springs. My uncle told me today that is all the way off, and ready for me to start throwing my line. Saturday i will be going to fish in the afternoon until dark, but might go Friday. Anyone willing, let me know. Tight Lines

I have one final left on Tuesday, but after that its fishing season my babies. Kolob is now accessible by vehicles, so anybody ready to get out there and catch some fish let me know.

Bass Pond Hurricane Fields April 18, 2008

April 18, 2008 Apple Fields Pond.

Kyle Lallis and I have been talking about fishing together since high school it seems like, but this week we finally went. I only had a couple hours on Friday, so Kyle told me about a little pond in the fields that you wouldn't believe had bass. We started fishing around 5p.m. it was a little breezy and probably around 76-78 degrees, Lallis thought the water was around 50 degrees.

When we arrived to the pond I couldn't believe that the pond we were parked at had fish. Myself being very persistent with only using my fly rod, I thought I might have some challenges. Lallis being a master bass fishermen started catching fish right of the get go. I had what I though were a few bites, and Lallis gave me some tips on the way bass take bait. After that I started to feel the subtle takes, and started catching fish. We fished for a couple hours, I caught 5, and Lallis probably had 10, but he had 2 that were at least 3lb's. I couldn't believe there were that big of fish in this little muddy pond.

Lallis and I got to now each other a bit, and have had some of the same experiences in life through fishing. We both are always looking for someone to fish with, and many times we fish alone. Hopefully this summer we can catch some trout together, but a few bass wouldn't be so bad as long as there on my fly rod.

Mammoth Creek April 4, 2008

Ole Magneto and I took a little sick day Friday and did a little fishing. We went up 89 searching for some good clear water that had fish. We ended up doing a little driving around looking for the best water. We ended up fishing the lower half of mammoth creek. We spotted a fish on first arrival, so we knew there were fish. We both fished different styles of the streams. Matt fished the slow winding stream in the fields, and i fished the narrow faster part of the stream. We both had no luck, but i stalked a couple of probably 17-18" nice browns. I had no luck; although i threw everything at them i could think of. We stopped and had an excellent burger in Hatch, and called it a day. I think we both got a better understanding of the area, and will be fishing it much more this upcoming season. I think i am going to try to fish Miners ville this weekend. I hear it is really hot right now.
