|LAKE TROUT "EMERGENCY" REGULATIONS|
|TROLLING IN THE FOG NEAR SHORE|
Tuesday, 8:00 AM. 40 degrees F at the ferry dock, 38 on the back porch. Wind N, blustery. The sky is mostly cloudy with some clearing on the western horizon, and it looks like it will turn into a nice day eventually.. The humidity is 85%, the barometer 29.76" and rising slowly. Today will be warmer, with highs in 50's, then cooling off tomorrow until the weekend, when it will warm up again, with chances of rain Saturday and Sunday. Spring has arrived, but winter, like "the man who came to diner, " is reluctant to leave.
It was foggy most of the day yesterday, sometimes real pea soup fog. The trout and salmon must be starting their spring run up the rivers, as these fishermen were trolling close to shore off the mouth of the Sioux River. Lake trout are invariably caught out in the deep open waters of the lake. There are different regulations for other trout, and for salmon.
