Debra and I rolled over Donner Pass Friday afternoon and checked into a comped room at Grand Sierra (thanks Mike and Henny). We met the Schaefers for a pitcher of Margies and dinner (Bertha Mirandas)and some gamboling downtown.
Mike and I hit the road Saturday morning early for Pyramid. Rain had started to green things up a bit and we had cloudshow high and low
We turned south for Blockhouse to find an early crowd
We commenced to pitchin and found some success on beetles
Weather and scenery top notch
Some lucky guy landed an 18 lb Pilot Peak beauty
We worked our way north for lunch
We had an issue with a tufa boulder
Wind forced us back south and east to Dago Bay.
We spent a relaxing evening on the ladders. I hooked and lost a big fish on the fly. Sky was brilliant.
Woke up this morning to a rainbow over Reno.
It rained HARD from Truckee all the way back to Pleasanton.
