A cold 47-degree day with a gusty North wind was spent wading upstream with a 4-weight and intermediate line to the entrance of a small spring. Silver/white Mini Minnies brought a mixed bag to the net with male white bass, crappies, and big bluegills. The following day was warmer (58 degrees). The warmth felt great to me but apparently, the fish didn’t care. A wade down a favored river was followed by a visit to a pond. A shutout was avoided but only by the narrowest of margins. Transitioning weather is challenging.
