North Idaho is looking better
Snow buildup has been late just like the 2018-2019 season, but we have seen some promising numbers this past month. Throughout the pacific northwest we are also seeing very few areas below 90% Snow Water Equivalent % of Normal. Northern Idaho and Western Montana is looking great and where most of you fish throughout the year.
Will it last ? When will it all melt? How soon till the snow melts? These are great questions and I wish I could give you exact answers, but I am not a rocket scientist or winning lottery number picker so I will keep monitoring the numbers and future temperature forecast. In the meantime get out on the water and give it a try!
