View Full Version : Del Valle From The Bank Report (Excellent Day!)

We pulled in right around 700 to foggy skies and a pretty empty parking lot. Lake looked to be near capacity.Picked up some mini crawlers from the snack bar and started the hike in. By 745 I had the wife's and my bait pole set up and i put on a broken back Repala. 1st cast and i picked up a nice 14in. Trout. It was pretty steady action for the next 21/2 hrs. Most of the fish came on rainbow PB. No action at all on pumped crawlers. Beautiful day. We left around 1100 with 7 nice fish. Nothing huge but 5 of them produced nice red fillets. It felt good to hike out with a heavier pack than i hiked in with. As most of u dog owners know its that time of year and ticks were out in force. Otherwise a great day. Hope u enjoy the pics.

Looks like a perfect day...

except for the night-crawler part...

though I've dealt with that before...

but I don't remember doing it with the success as in your pictures.

Thanks for sharing them.

Very nice day. Those are lovely trout. Love the picture of the vultures. It would kind of creep me out.
