With yet another cold, wet weather pattern upon us here in the Heartland, I thought I’d share with you what a fine day it was yesterday on the river French Fur Trappers called Corne de Cerf, French for the horn of the elk, because of its meandering nature and tributaries. It was a nice spring day indeed to be on the Elkhorn!
My buddy and I weren’t the only living, breathing things on the river this last Tuesday afternoon in April either. So were a pair of American White Pelicans. Aren’t they cool!
I also spotted this Canada Goose. I never tire of watching geese!
Fishing action was steady on plump pan-sized channel catfish.
Here’s a freshwater drum I caught, another common river specie in the Elkhorn. The fun of Nebraska river fishing is not knowing what fish might be on the end of the line!
The leaf matter amid the green grass of the river’s woodland edge produced some of these – morel mushrooms! Mmm …
All in all I fine spring day to be on the Corne de Cerf!
This spring in Nebraska, I’d encourage you to take advantage of any pockets or stretches of nice weather when we have them! Enjoy!
