Tonight may have been the last float after work unless I can get some access upstream-it got pretty dark at the end. Ever since I lost my camera, the backup hasn't been all that groovy. I need to get a new one since elk opens Thursday.

The little tykes are nibbling, but the water isn't all that great. Until they shut off the irrigation, the return water will still be shitting up the drink........Oh well, beats sitting at home.

Shitty camera and all.

I went out Friday to chase some elk.......it rained.

Image

Fucking mud, socked in mountains, shit made me mad.........

The rain also blew out the local drink, so we bailed on down to Moss Vegas. The weather made a big turn, so the fish will be doing who knows what?....

Image

The drink was still shitting moss......fucking shit will never end.

Image

Had to work for the few we touched in the morning........

Image

Image

Then the baetis started to pop.......

Image

And they were everywhere.

Image

And so were the fish. It was kind of maddening, but we managed.

The weekend called for mid-70's so the elk were pretty safe from me chasing after their asses. But with the warm temps also came the w.

I wanted to do a float lower down, but the only person I could get to roll with me was my buddy, the football coach. His team won the state title last year, but some key injuries have sent the team on a 0-3 skid. His dad was in town that just wanted to float, but their time was limited so we opted for the quicker float. Again, a bunch of dinks, but a few good fish kept it interesting. It was great to watch a buddy and his dad enjoy the river, forgetting all the woes and worries for a few hours.

We launched just before 11........

One hell of a trailer park........
