Kaster and I ran up the hwy 88-4 area Fathers day on a hunt for black helicopters and a rare Bird. After a brief sighting we drove Sheep Ranch road to Avery and headed up 4. Kept hearing banjo music in the distance. Up 4 past big trees. Snow level was around 6000 ft. Made a stop at Boards Crossing.
Of course the Stani was raging. Continued up the road hoping to fish the ice edges at Alpine. Stopped at Hells Kitchen overlook.
6 ft of snow piled up at road edge. Great breakfast at the Alpine lodge. A few belly boaters there with maybe 15% of the lake iced out.
No action so we headed for Spicer. Needless to say Spicer was WAY FULL.
Can’t wait for our upcoming camping trip there. The river coming out of the dam was up but fishable.
Unfortunately not a fish spotted. Rolled back down the hill and home by 6 for Papas day dinner.
