Debra and I joined Randy and Thelma for a short Sunol hike. Pretty place! Will be popping with wildflowers in a couple of weeks.
Debra was not impressed with the fact that Indian Joe trail has about 10 creek crossings but she toughed it out.
We stumbled across some freekin hippies
Mike and I enjoyed a slow but excellent Saturday at Melones. A dozen or so bass and no trout.
Crazy deer swim meet spotted.
With all of the recent rains Mr. T and I were both chomping at the bit to see what was happening at the waterfalls way up river. We stopped at Glory Hole Sports for breakfast burritos that were promptly gobbled down as we were launching.
Bright skies, 32 degrees and a very cold wind made for a brutal 65 MPH run all the way up river where we had the lake to ourselves for 10 hrs.
The meter was blacked out at the first falls stop.
The sun topping the ridge was a welcome site as it was freezing fingers time back in the canyon.
The fish were deep all day between 20-30 feet which forced me to adopt Turhans ultralight rigs (FUN!) and put down my usual setups. We had a very good day. NOT A BOAT IN SIGHT the entire time.
No wood, not good LOL.
I LOVE this lake and my buddy T is starting to develop a pattern here. There was water coming in everywhere but the lake is hardly stained at all.
We put 30 fish on board and quite few were slab crappie. Not one sign of any trout action and I tried. I can’t wait until the water warms up and the bass move up the bank.
