so the spring push came n went early this season never peaking over 6k although theyre still pushin a bit of water up north

didn't make it up for high flows

transitioned into summers happy idiot legal tenders gigs and thankfully doing it for myself or rather anyone willing to pay with stacks of dead potus papers and keeps me in the shadows of the economy

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/fish%20stoke%2018/IMG_7104_zpssjyrlhdc.jpg[/IMG]

mnt hippie gardens way behind and our irrigation water systems been fucked

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/fish%20stoke%2018/IMG_6848_zps2jmoartb.jpg[/IMG]

the old mans been havin a tough time

rolled n totaled his uninsured pop up trailer, third marriage ended, and mentally is starting to slip a bit.

so gittin him out for some dads day river time was in order

been unseasonably hot n windy

and the meager snowpacks melting fast

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/fish%20stoke%2018/IMG_7111_zpsysoagg4a.jpg[/IMG]

so seeing tuesday was high pressure and calm i decided to head up score a good camp and check on the poopers in the res

sounded good till a coon decided he was gonna homestead the chimney

with profesional coon removal running tween 3- 4 hundy i needed to dyi this problem even if it cost me a perfect poopfish day

a few bottle rockets a trip or 2 to the hodepot chimney caps,landscaping the neighbors overhanging trees, and turd removal

i managed to safly roll into dj round 420

the furkids been doing well i failed at home schoolin and weve been going to classes been a year now hes grown and matured quite a bit

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/fish%20stoke%2018/IMG_7117_zpsylln81r5.jpg[/IMG]

they tell me he needs a purpose, shit im 53 and i wonder bout my purpose

all the good river camps had been taken so we headed down to browns park and scored a riverside camp

rolled out for a dawn patrol float and some row by streamer shootings

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/fish%20stoke%2018/IMG_7121_zpscqx3iz0k.jpg[/IMG]

my row n throw games was ,doh described it well and im still trying to figure out how i donated that 1st fly on the 1st cast to the river gods

had a few grabs and a troots or 2 on the line but none in the nets

bailed on the troots n flowing water and hit the gorge

a dry cold front was rolling through with enough wiind so that gittin em from shore was the call

surprisingly still a few late spawners and dork god had a blast chasing them fore i got him under control

got a few to eat

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/fish%20stoke%2018/IMG_7124_zpskh2c4vcu.jpg[/IMG]



got back in the hogs n stuck one

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/fish%20stoke%2018/IMG_7183_zpsqqulj6jr.jpg[/IMG]

couple trips into the backing an under the boat and around the anchor rope escape manuver & some uncharacteristic top water shenanigans and about a 1/2 hour later i put him in the nets

hr puppystuffs slept through the whole thing

which for anyone who saw the last furkid in oc action at the fish on part is a kinda nice change

headed back to camp the old man made it up finally and we got up n out early and floated a b

he had a real hard time the night before im not gonna go into details but it wasnt pretty,and that shits down right depressing so despite the skunking and tough dry fly conditions the fact that he was much better that day

and a gourgie day on your home waters with a couple of yur best fishin buds is a blessing that shouldn't be taken lightly and that fuckin circle of life.. well a lil help at the start and towards the end to keep the diameter straight is part of it all

floated into camp and a bro with his crotchfruit showed up

floated a quick eve float down to cowboy

as the wife showed up and cooked sum grub

weather for sunday looked flash flood ominous so we bucked camp and headed up to the dam for a float

made sum friends at the put in

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/fish%20stoke%2018/IMG_7337_zpsoaoofafu.jpg[/IMG]

we had a basset growin up so i'll always be a fan of those goofy gods

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/fish%20stoke%2018/IMG_7336_zps9jsvili2.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/fish%20stoke%2018/IMG_7359_zpsbpnpo90m.jpg[/IMG]

and team fugitives hit the water

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/fish%20stoke%2018/IMG_7370_zpsj2gofywv.jpg[/IMG]

once again catching was tough but the river miles go by easy

stopped n cooled off

[IMG]http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y195/skifishbum/fish%20stoke%2018/DSCN0746_zpsal4isum3.jpg[/IMG]
