Screw 90+ degrees. I say we get a few cases (of NOT Keystone beer), leave the boo home, and drunk float the Musky all day!

See everyone this morning! I know BT will be getting there early to scout it out and catch all the fish first!

Best of luck to you all. I won't be there, worked outside all day yesterday, can't take another day of heat, humidity and bugs.

They all got arrested for smoking weed in a WCA, and drinking beer on state property...all the bamboo rods were confiscated and are being sold for charity to drug and drinking programs... They all need to enter re-hab for 1 month to skip jail time and lower their fines. Other than that, I heard it was a good time. Several large trout were killed because of the water temperatures and one fellow fell in and was never found again... :D :D :D


I don't know couldn't make it..

It ended up just being BT and I, but the weather was nice and the water was cool! Water temps were 64F and it didnt start feeling hot out until 11/12 when the sun finally made its way onto the water. BT and I started off fishing our 'boo. He went with a dry and like the terrible person I am I used a nymph on a bamboo rod :lol: I got a bunch of hits and hookups but no fish to net. The current was just a bit too much for my rod so I switched over to the 10' 4wt and started landing a bunch. Ended up with a handful of nice bows up to 16'' with a few being acrobatic. Got a few aggressive takes on the swing which is always fun. So if you dont let your nymphs "swing up" at the end of your drift, start doing so!

Also, almost everyone I saw fishing was in waders?!? Make Wet Wading Great Again!!
