Headed East

All week i had in mind to hit a couple of Tiger Musky lakes out east but as the week went on my mind started to drift towards the higher elevation. by thursday i knew i had talked my self out of musky and into the mountains. this time of year the mountains tend to change my priorities, this time to chepeka and surrounding lakes.i went in search of cutties and 1 cuttie was all the cutties i could handle apparently. i did land a few small brookies as well, but those werent my intended targets. although i only landed 1 cutt, it was by far the most colorful i have ever caught. i did see a handful of critters

while i was u at 10,700ft.

First hike of the season

Me and scott drove thru wyoming to get to the north slope, with the plan to hit a greyling lake. unfortuntely when we hiked to it it was still froze over. oh way, plan B had us over on the south slope playing with the little fish with a few got ones mixed in. of course didnt get any photos of the good ones.

Waters on the rise

The water is on the rise. it was bumped a bunch the other day, was 247 when we fished it, checked it again when i got home, it had bumped to 284, this morning was 320 something and this evening 413cfs. anyway, we moved a decent amount of fish but most were smaller and we only saw a few that were note worthy. we each caught a few.

My first musky of the year?

Nope! we got on the lake around 430pm and cruised around for a couple of hours. with looking for musky gerald saw some carp tails so veered off subject for a minute and landed a carp. storm was coming in so we bounced.

Tale of 2 visits

Hooked up with Gerald in the morning. it was good fishing weather with some rain coming down and no one else around. the fishing was incredibly slow though with gerald landing a couple and me only seeing a couple of fish. i left after we fished that section but gerald went to a different location. i got house work done and he railed some nice fish. at about 8pm i was chomping at the bit to head back out and throw some mice. mousing was were it was at. i only landed a few but saw some real nice fish. i was happy with how that last hour and a half of light turned out.

Took Ali out for a couple hours

I went out for some evening mouse casting practice with Ali in tow. her friends couldnt play so she wanted to join me. just fished a short little piece and managed only 1 fish with the mouse. i missed a few as always but am happy anytime i can land a fish on a mouse.

Early evening

After the wife went to work i headed out for a couple of hours. the fishing was decent with a few decent fish to be had. i switched to a mouse for the last run and missed a small fish and i missed a really nice looking brown. had him hooked for a moment then that moment was gone.
