Dirty Water Day

This morning I watched the river go from fishable to NON- catchable.  So this evening we decided to sit out on our deck while drinking a bottle of wine, and watch another storm come across the mountains.
Wonder what fishing will be tomorrow??????

Post Proposal Fishing Trip

Scott is no longer available, because he just proposed to his long time girl friend.
Once again Danny is only happy when he hooks the fish, not when he gets his photo taken.
This was Danny's last fishing trip.  He is headed back to work.

Darlene's Early Morning Guided Trip

I have the best guide.  He put me onto many fish this morning.
Caught lots of them on a purple hopper.
Ms. Floatfisher--check out my new life jacket.
The guide had to do some fancy maneuvering to get me to the place to catch this rainbow.
I had to hang onto to it tightly, because I didn't want it to take a header into the boat.

New Hat

Bill caught this brown early in the morning.

Bill got a Grand Slam today...a brown, rainbow, and cutthroat.
This was the cutthroat.
We had to take time to look at the scenery.

I knew Steve a long long time ago.

An Early Start

Fishing was much better this morning.  Danny even said he needed to put on a jacket.
Fishing was good!!!
Chuck promised in writing that he wouldn't miss another fish.  That lasted 1 fish!!!

Spinney Is Turning Over

Chris caught a 21 incher on the river and also on Spinney.
The lake temperature was 72 degrees at 18 inches below the surface.
Hard to catch fish!!!!

Couples Day

Ron showing one of many fish.
This is the reason I take people fishing (smile).

Rain and More Rain. We Need It!!!

There isn't enough water going down the river to clean the dirty water on a daily basis.
