Looking for a little clean, moving water.

Departure was delayed by mechanical difficulties so Dawn's crack was seen on the wrong side of the mountains

Image

a little milky but not bad; some trout in here but better for pike

Image

Image

their deliveries tend to be late

Image


I don't even think rootbeer can save that

Image


a bit high here

Image

the boat ramp is just to the left as you can ('t) see

Image


close as I could get

Image


on the comeback trail; 40 years ago, exhaust from the aluminium plant pretty much stripped it

Image

backside

Image


I dare ya

Image


skirting the south side

Image

Image

Image


nope

Image


better, but not quite; jailbait for 3 more days, anyway

Image


train dumped a load of corn here years ago; place was lousy with bears for quite a while

Image


right on the dashed line

Image


Eastslope on the left, Westslope on the right

Image


leaving the tight contour lines behind

Image

Image


some places are best seen in the rear-view mirror, heading out of town; this is one of those places

Image



Image

the local inhabitants and birds voice their disappointment

Image


I got a thing for these like I do beaverslides

Image

Image


speed goats (loads of Huns running around in this stuff, too)

Image

Image


that's more like it

Image

Image

Image

Image


a few, very few bwo's up but no interest, everything came to the nymph; say "cheese" cheeker

Image


was planning on spending a couple days but made the mistake of checking in with home base; repair skills needed ASAP so back in the car (scenery makes the drive easy)

This makes me miss Montana, but not the gas bill.

Damn Scott. You drove all that way in one day? For one whitey? Or was that several days of high water blues followed by a wknd trip or something? Methinks you should learn to like pike. Youre in a good spot for it.

whitey was the only one I photo'd; got some brown fish, too. Yeah it was one day and that's a few miles. I've been thinking about the pike; gotta give that a shot.
