Iced Out

Last weekend, the creek behind our house had a bit of flow to it. Much more than I was expecting for mid-January. Today, I headed down there with a dipnet hoping to find my first fish of 2014.

No luck! The shallow parts of the creek were iced all the way to the creek bed! The deeper holes looked to have some pretty thick ice, too. Eventually, I came to a spot with some fractured surface ice, so I threw a few rocks at the cracks to see how thick the ice was:

The ice was a few inches thick, then there was a several inch gap of air, then a little more ice on the creek bed. Not conducive to finding fish!

I aborted my search after about ten minutes....maybe the deep holes will open up in a few weeks!
