There’s a little local blue-line trout stream I won’t fish because it’s so low- not the typical mid-winter seasonal low, but 40% below average for this time of year. It’s the same story for a tentative August trip out west, looking at SNOTEL, with much of the Rockies well below average.
Here’s hoping things pick up….and soon.

In a part of the world decimated by logging and mining, The Nature Conservancy and Kentucky’s top Republican have partnered for a $5 million grant to protect 25,000 acres of Appalachian landscape. The strange bedfellows’ cooperative effort will protect threatened amphibians, bats, birds, crawdads, fish, and freshwater mussels all benefit, with the mixed hardwood and hemlock forests affording carbon sequestration for generations to come.
Let’s take the win.
