Lots and lots of boats on the water today. Bankies too.
Wind accompanied the dry fly anglers as they wait for the rise.
Some bugs today and more tomorrow as we go deeper int the weekend. The weather will be changing as the season progresses.
- Tonight – Scattered rain showers before midnight, then a slight chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 28. Breezy, with a west southwest wind 14 to 23 mph, with gusts as high as 34 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%. Little or no snow accumulation expected.
- Sunday – A 30 percent chance of snow showers, mainly after noon. Mostly cloudy, with a steady temperature around 31. Breezy, with a southwest wind 17 to 22 mph, with gusts as high as 33 mph. New snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.
My guess is there will be fewer folks around tomorrow as the football schedule will keep some attached to the couch.
Also on the docket is Adipose Boatworks 4th Anniversary Party at the boat shop. 350 Wilkinson Helena MT. Starts @ 3pm. Stop by for a chat, a cupcake or two, and to see the inside of the boat shop!
