Easter weekend was awesome this year. Turns out it was my Birthday as well. We loaded up the kids and headed to Missoula (Frenchtown Actually) to visit Camille's Sister and Brother in law, who both happen to live on the banks of the Clark Fork River. Friday we fished for a few hours during the heat of the day and had some awesome action on Skwalas. Saturday we were debating whether to float the Bitteroot in snow storms and wind or head up to a little lake to see if the ice had come off yet. Turns out it hadn't, but we brought a shovel. After breaking ice for an hour we started to see some nice fish crusing the shoreline. We ended up hooking several nice rainbows and landed some big fish up to 10lbs.
On Sunday we headed down to the Clark Fork after Landon's easter egg hunt, and fished for a couple hours. Landon picked up the fly rod and started casting like a champ. He loved it....I need to get an un-breakable fly rod for him....maybe a CB Antenna..or somthing. Anyway, it was a great weekend with lots of fish, beer, and family. Couldn't have been better. Here are some pics.
