Things are very quiet here in Elk City. One visitor last week commented that it was like a ghost town! Welcome to spring in Elk City. Saw a truck with two snowmobiles leave town Sunday. Don’t know how the snow is up higher for snowmobiling, but the fishing along the river seems to be going good.

Although the calendar confirms it is officially spring, there remains a foot or two of the white stuff on the flat, shaded or northern aspect areas around town. The meltdown slowed a bit this past week as nighttime temperatures have been in the single digits (trying real hard to get to zero). However, that’s a good thing if you like to fish for big fish. The river drops and clears up a bit, and it’s “fish on.”
