These ladies are still sticking with it despite some cold snowy days, and now dealing with icy river conditions. Nothing will stop them from getting on those boats and poles in the water! On 2/5 we had a great group of ladies out with some, although cold, but beautiful snow. Jean was able to still hook onto a hog of a wild fish! She was super excited and was a fun battle. They also were able to witness right up close an eagle come sweep the river and grab a fish. Was yet another great day on the water!

WWB 2019 Update 2/1 to 2/3 Big Excitement and some Big fish too! We have kicked off our first weekend with fish in the boat and some happy ladies. We had some ice flowing at first so we did some fishing in Hells Canyon and Hammer Creek, then we decided to bring a couple boats back over and were able to break some ice and fish at Spring Bar. We are unable to get the boats to Vinegar at this point due to the road conditions. A lot of the ice has flowed out as of yesterday, but we have some snow in forecast and some really cold night temperatures coming so we will be continuing to monitor the river …
