Geeze no one is going? I guess you are all worried about 12/21/12 and the solar emission or something......Jetspray

Not so much the 12-21-12 but more like Sonora, Monitor, and Ebbett's Passes closed. :-) and I have nice trout on my side of the hill. :-)

I'll be there sometime in late Feb. or March for our annual trip....I'll hit you up when we head your way. I ended up w/ 2 tagged fish last year for a nice $200 .....covered my losses and bar tab @ the Casino.

Fishing in the snow is fun...

I remember you posting that. Those were nice fish and with the "bank" added it made the catch super killer. :-)

It's not so much the fact of catching fish, just a great way to spend the day with some fellow sniffers........Jetspray

If I don't take the boat, the party will probably be on the north shore somewhere. I believe that the tagged fish will be hanging around the marina area where they plant them. Those will be one's planted by Topaz Lodge/Casino. Hope to see you there too........Jetspray

Just out in the garage today arranging gear for the opener, looking through the "wizzards cave" to find where "up" is. Up is where you last put things, "I don't know where it is, I put it up last year".........Jetspray

Lake is very low and both ramps are not too accessable (call before trying). Water is coming up slowly about 2 feet a week, but the shoreline stuff would be great. We will probably be on the north shore fishing for the opener:rolleyes2:.......Jetspray

Picked up Jetpray at 0915 and headed to Topaz. First checked the West shore below the bug station. 395 is still being worked on but there is access down to the water. Checked the north shore. Water is really low and there is no snow by the lake. Access should be excellent if there in no new snow. Went to the park and checked the ramp. Both docks are way out of the water and it will be difficult to launch here the rocks are just below the end of the ramp. Lots of shore fishers this year.
