Hey all...
What a lovely day it was yesterday! I slept in a bit and didn't head out until about 7:30 ish. I was thinking of stopping at Chrystal Springs but decided to just head up to the East side as I felt it would be a bit warmer over there.
I made a stop for coffee and Allie's in markleeville and headed on up river.

The day warmed up quickly and I was shedding the layers of clothing by 10 am

I stopped in a visited with Todd at the Carson River Resort and had my lunch and headed back out.
Fish catch....
I caught and released only about 10-15 fish. Some were in 12-14 range and 1-2 in the 2-3 pound range and a couple in the 5-6 lb range. I lost two real nice fish....Had to tie on a new setup 2 times in about a 30 minute period and finally after that I landed my second larger trout.
On my way home I had the pleasure of following a beautiful lenticular cloud....I took some photos for you all...
Sorry for the blurry fish photos....

Another good day. Pretty fish. I was watching that cloud as I was grilling dinner. Figured it was hanging over Costco. Nice Pictures.

Man I'm sooo jealous of you! Wished I lived closer to Tahoe for all the great trout fishing!

Nice pics and fish once again and about the clouds.. it looks so fake, as if someone brushed the sky for an art project.

Great day....again!! You must be in the 10% of the anglers that catch 90% of the fish.

Nice pictures.

I think there is a name for that kind of cloud formation...

don't remember what it is though.

Perhaps "Cool" if your on your way home. You might call it something else if your on your way camping.

I did a Google search. Someone was calling something similar, "Lenticular". (https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-beta&hs=jp5&tbo=d&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&biw=1023&bih=672&tbm=isch&sa=1&q=cloud+formation+types&oq=cloud+formation+types&gs_l=img.12..0j0i24j0i5i24.101220.101220.0.102441. I'm thinking that sounds right.

P.S. Now I see you had it all along.

"On my way home I had the pleasure of following a beautiful lenticular cloud...."

I don't always read so much. Sometimes I just look at the pictures.
