We can count one more winter over and done with. The daylight is lasting longer and the afternoons warmer. The fish are biting. Spring is awakening. Trout season is here. So are the north winds and allergies … it’s a package deal.
Every year Caribou Crossroads on Highway 70 in the Feather River Canyon hosts a Big Fish Contest and barbecue, complete with live music, to celebrate the opening day of stream fishing season. My wife and I were there enjoying the music and some good food last Saturday. We couldn’t help but laugh and admire the cute little boy at the table next to us. He was clearly enjoying himself with all kinds of happy antics including literally dancing on the table.
