We have had some real rain. Long way to go but a great start to a comeback from years of sub par rain and snow. Its been a really mild winter so far in the coastal region where I live. Carp on the fly is as good as it gets with all the rain fall we have had. They are comfortable and eating well. Especially tidal/ estuary fishing. A buddy and I got out for a couple of hours and we had plenty of shots on shallow fish on a cloudy tough sky day. With some sun we would have smoked em.
We will see where this winter takes us but I am hopefull. I went hiking around in the Santa Cruz Mtns near home and it was as beautiful as it gets for Northern California. Even saw a few small steelhead in the pools.
