Well, so much for a nice calm spring. We got water. BIG water. Hope that are surviving the flooding and have minimum damage from all of this. I know we have some members that the flooding is effecting there life. As I write this the rivers are still cresting. This is really going to slow down fishing for a week or two. Rumors have it that some of our resorts and parks have received some moderate to big time damage. Check before you go anywhere for a fishing trip.
