The Fishing trip sounds great.

Why is everyone going in mid Feb? Is there a specific reason why everyone goes this time of year? Whats the BUZZ???

historically much bigger fish are caught during the late january to late february time period. I dont know why, but I have just gathered that from others over time. I am sure Major or Chuck can give you the scientific answer. full of complex equations of course wink:

Its true the fishing is better in the winter for more and bigger fish, I think the main reason for this is because of the amount of natural food flowing through the river in the spring and summer is so abundant :? well thats my story and im sticking to it :mrgreen:

Bigger fish are available because there is less natural food in the river. They come to eat the excess food from the pens. Its not that the fish are bigger it is that they are congregated rather than spread out and therefore the bigger fish are congregated in an area you can target.

3 day weekend for fishing makes sense.

I guess that means that anyone could go the following weekend and still catch just as many fish?. Or is there something about feb 14-18.

I can't believe I am actually thinking about driving out there. It's valentines day weekend, now I have to convince my girlfriend and friends girlfriends to go on a fishing trip! :lol:

Any winter weekend is fine, you'll catch fish. It's all about priorities. Three day weekend to travel, meet some great people, and catch huge trout, OR observe a manufactured "holiday" that serves no purpose other than getting men in trouble...
