A Beautiful Afternoon On The River

The afternoon temperature reached 69 degrees.  The fish were willing to play!
The Fish Spotter thought playing in the water was fun too.
It was sad to see an 18" fish dead in the water.

Last Day of the 2012 Season

After 125 float trips this year, I decided to retire this pair of boots.
The Fish Spotter and I will be off the grid for awhile.
Be back later.

My Last Guide Trip

Wayne tried real hard to join the 20 inch club, but he'll have to wait till next year.
However he caught some nice rainbows.

Stacie also enjoyed catching some bigger fish.

Icey Morning

We fought ice on the guides till 11am, then we endured 30 mph winds
in the afternoon.  The catching was still good.  Used the the grape Jelly Belly
and a red Copper John.

Wayne is trying to become a member of the 20 inches club.

The River is LOW!!!

In the 16 years I have been in Salida, this is the lowest I have seen the river.
