It's really crazy this year flyty1. I can't remember a May/June where it was this wet. Flow on the Au Sable is 12" high right now, which is nuts for that river as it's spring feed/tailwater it usually stays pretty level no matter the rain.

I don't think we have corn snakes here in Michigan. Could be wrong, but I've never seen it listed as a species here.

 

I'm with ya on ticks. I friggin HATE them little SOB's! Once you have one then for the rest of the day any little itch you are freeking out and scratching yelling "get off me!" even if its just my cat rubbing my leg laugh.png laugh.png

Looks like it is going to be a good year for snakes even here in Michigan as well. Normally I may see a snake or two over the course of the year fishing, but this year I already saw (almost stepped on) two of them. First one was probably the biggest Garter snake I have ever seen in my life. Had to be a solid 30" and thick around in the center as my wrist. Never seen such a heavy Garter snake before. 2nd one was right on the edge of the river and I almost stepped on him. He jumped in the water and swam off soon as I moved my foot. Not entirely sure of the species he was but I think maybe some sort of fox snake maybe?

 

Also looks to be a big year for ticks ph34r.png I had three of them on me from the trip the other day. Two of them where just crawling on me and no big deal. One last night was on my side and had bite into me and had to pulled him out with my "tick tool" I carry on my vest. That one left a pretty good mark that bleed. No signs of rash/bulls eye around it though so thats good, but the little bugger sure had a set of jaws on him to make me bleed like thatmad.gif
