ok my apologies for yelling.. but this is a great weekend to stay home and watch TV. do chores, hang out and play video games...
First weekend of June is free fishing weekend. Don't need a license or anything. Pretty much everywhere is extra jam packed with people.

If that isn't enough to keep you home.. check out the weather reports for your areas you like to go. Pretty much everything I'm seeing is 20 to 30 MPH sustained winds across CO for both Saturday and Sunday.. here in the Springs we're supposed to have gusts up to 70 MPH
Seems like a good time for my truck to get a hand washing.
LOL Jim , you got it All right . You know where I live and the Lake and marina will be CRAZY !!! The wife and I are going to the valley to shop and eat at our favorite Mexican restaurant that just re-opened. :)
No worries Jim. I Ďm Gonna take some of brons advise . And go fish a local spot he suggested. Looking for the highly prized , and much sought after. Rubber lipped, trumpet mouth golden fish . Donít anticipate much company . But who knows?
We may try and get some sunrise fishing in Sunday if the winds havenít picked up again from Saturday. Betting most people who will be out for the ďfree weekendĒ arenít your typical anglers and wonít bother until late morning at the earliest.
If things donít play nice we might go for a bike ride the wash The Yeti. Anything to make an excuse to not do hard work.

I got one of those time-delayed slots to enter Rocky Mountain NP tomorrow at 8am. I'm thinking maybe local travel bans might keep the tourist riffraff out of the way, lower-mid level lakes might be thawing (thinking Sprague, Dream, Moraine Park), fish could be getting hungry and no one has been up there for months.....it could either be amazing fishing or could all still be iced over. Can't cant any fish if you line isn't in the water! Will report back. I'm thinking the NP might have a couple less worm dunkers out for free fishing weekend...

We're at jmart as I type 86* 24mph winds at 930 am and only going up on both. Just going to sit in the rocking camper and watch the tents go flying past. I do feel sorry for them though. Tomorrow dosent look any better.
It was pretty crowded. Surprisingly so, actually. Bear Lake trailhead was full when I got there at 8:45, I was the last vehicle let in and they started turning folks around.
Dream Lake-- Dream is fully thawed. Fish were pretty sluggish. Only saw one or two cruisers, no real surface activity to speak of. There were probably 15 nice greenbacks clustered up tight by the inlet stream, couldn't get any of them to take, but they were sitting in probably 2-4' of water.
Moraine Park-- The stream is totally blown out right now. Water is rushing up over the banks of the stream and the surrounding lowlying area is essentially flooded. No action.
In all, a beautiful day! A no-fish day in the park is still a day well spent.
Was driving home from Big Mac 6/6/20, was in the wind from Big Springs to Denver, the closer I got to Denver the worse it got, when I hit Hudson, it was unbelievable, it was like driving inside a low level tornado, never seen anything like it, and that wasnít even the worse of it.
