    Too bad you're still in the snow season. Pass was closed for a bit today, hoping for better late next week.

    The long range forecast for the Pass looks pretty good. Higher temps with just some rain, no snow. Hopefully it will clear out before Thursday.

    I came back over the pass about 3:30 today. Conditions are ok with just some slush on the road. Heading west this morning was a different story. Single file and 45mph from Easton to Denny Creek.

    This time of year is the beginning of too much to do! I have a fly club meeting Thursday I really want to see (our local steelhead expert Scott Willison on steelhead flies and technique) so I'm leaving early Friday morning for Lenice. Then, some of my friends are floating the Yak Saturday and Sunday and the Skwalas are starting to produce so back to Ellensburg Friday night to meet them Saturday morning! Should be a great couple days! See you guys at Lenice! I might bring a steak if I can use Scott's BBQ Friday night before heading back to E'burg. Rick

    I know Rick and Scott are heading to Lenice. Anyone else? I'm planning on going over Thursday, fishing Friday, taking a quick trip to Yakima on Sat. and then back to fish Sunday and Monday if it's productive. If it's a bust, I'll start driving around looking for Ira and his flask.:D

    Rick / Steve & ?:

    I'll have the barby and some fire wood. I'll likely have pasta or potato salad too.

    Rick, that Yak float sounds great.

    Where will Ira's flask be found?

    I wasn't able to clear the schedule for the opener this year but I appreciate everyone's willingness to go out and test the waters. I'll be looking for reports to direct my efforts the following weekend :)

    I have a dolly for my pram now. It could be worth the possibility of looking into other options as well.

    As long as they haven't been hooked before. I understand.

    Ira,
    Would you mind posting a picture of your dolly some time?
    I have a 9'6" Almarco that I can mostly handle now but not
    getting any younger and don't need to screw up my back.
    Thanks
