OK this isn't getting posted till the AM of the next morning, but the date reflects the day I was out Thursday April 7th.
I headed out to the Grumpy Old Man Hole(GOMH)
There was about a football field worth of open water on the Sullivan side.
I was actually surprised to see Platte this open.
As I promised I brought a few rods and did some fishing.
The water level is up about a foot from where it was on March 21st but there wasn't much current and the flow was actually into Platte. I didn't get any bites, but I saw a beaver and several muskrats, ducks, and quite a few geese.
