    Sun, beer and gills, who could ask for more?

    I guess you are never too old to learn. I just read the following on the WDFW web page. HUH!


    "Warmwater game fish are the fastest-growing segment of Washington’s resident sport fishery. The number of warmwater anglers increased from an estimated 170,000 in 1968 to 334,000 in 1994. During this same period, the number of warmwater angler-days increased from 2.1 million to almost 6.2 million; the percentage of all resident game fish anglers fishing for warmwater species increased from 52.3% to 62.7%; and the number of Washington anglers indicating a preference for warmwater species increased from 23% to 34.3%."

    Sounds like I need to start checking the ponds around town. There are a few that warm up faster than others.
