A deluge of heavy rain hit parts of the northern Denver metro area on Friday night as monsoon storms moved through the area.

Mother Nature continues to impact offshore fishing

Rainfall, wind and the threat of thunderstorms have made this past week a catch-when-catch can scenario. There is another factor that may be having an impact on the fish bite, too — a full moon phase.

Captain Larry Jones, who is another contact, commented that lately most fishermen are struggling to connect with walleye.

Opinion:Mother Nature is ticked off. Can you blame her?

Mother Nature has had it with her brood. If you can’t see that, you haven’t been paying attention. Earth provides nutrition and sustenance. She coddles us and protects us. And what have we done in return? We treat her the way we too often treat our mothers. We ignore her advice. We place our needs above hers. We imagine she can magically make any problem go away — perhaps because we take for granted the toil of our real mothers who dusted us off when we faltered and stretched a pound of meatloaf to feed a family of six.
