was checking everything, and noticed that the license they gave me
was for 2018-2019 season, luckily I had my glasses on or I could have had a problem,
went back and they gave me the correct one for 2019-20 season. now all I need is for
the fish to cooperate tomorrow.

38 deg on my truck temperature

I forgot gloves

I didnít bring rain gear

It rained on me on the way out there

No white caps and light wind

Residual waves rolling up on shore but Iíve launched in bigger waves

I started to launch and two waves crashed over the back of my boat

Before I could get it back on the trailer two more waves crashed over the back of my boat

I left and got rained on again at the ranger station

Came home to dry everything out

Sorry to here that but if its painful you'll be better having it ! My wife has had 2 done and if they offer you a spinal tap right before the surgery take it , the wife did not take the second spinal tap and has had nothing but problems with the second replacement . Funny thing they don't tell you until they ask for a release of liability form the day of the surgery we were totally caught un awares by that . I'm glad we had insurance cause they are very very expensive . I hope it goes well keep us posted . Tightines BF

imho, it all depends on what you are having problems with, i'm not in much pain, fishing is more
important to me at this time. mine is left leg, they cant do anything about, right shoulder that was
supposedly fixed but is still painful. but i'm putting up with the pain because I don't want to go
through that again.

Update as I sit here in Scheels...Took 2hrs to launch this morning, the ranger said people started lining up at 2am. It rained, wind, big rollers, I was puckered for a bit. Only managed 6, 2 were 8lbs though. Found a school and jigged 4 up in silver and blue plume laser minnows, got two trolling Lymanís. Overall, heard it was super slow. Was planning on going back tomorrow (staying in a hotel tonight) but donít think I will. Didnít have the best vibes there today. Prolly counted 150+ boats just when I was launching

Today's is done differently from that one. My problem is genetic, and advanced by age. I have a great team of doctors where I am being treated. It is a fracture clinic and sports clinic. I have some meetings before I go in to do as well and physical therapy afterwards close to home. Thanks about the heads up on the spinal, I think it is similar to a spinal block for pain.:star8qo::star8qo::star8qo::star8qo::star8qo: .....Jetspray

Too many boats and bodies at one place, and about 1/2 of them are on something and tempers flair, cause they "Have to get that big one" and forget that rangers are all over the place smelling their breath and cars/trucks...….Jetspray

Fished from 730 to 330 for 23 fish. Biggest was 7#. Nothin picture worthy. All fish released on side of boat without a net or touching. Sounds good on paper but it was a very slow opener.

Weather and wind predictions were solid for 3 days. Ended up being totally opposite on game day. I love this lake!

Warm weather later this week should help the bite. Bait and fish were scattered. Could not find many active fish or large bait balls. Jigging east best bet. Fished from pelican to sutcliffe early and the kitchen in the afternoon.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191002/5b6ef73785c0f12c320c8f4dfbd6e25d.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191002/262c69373d37b80666e85510b047bec8.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191002/d0f4dcda3b658847d29fb9f211a5f428.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191002/b0d2583835c1996595a91d9e2e978770.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191002/77dd282fb16d38091fa137cf9aff2357.jpg

I just got back from 2 1/2 days there and it was the worst opener for me with only just over 50 fish jigged to the boat for the 3 of us. Biggest was 7 pounds.
On the second day it was slow for the first few hours then we found the sweet spot hooking hogs. We got at least 30 fish in the 10 - 14 pound range and about the same amount of fish in the 6-10 pound range and about 10 fish under 6 pounds.
Today we went out until noon and got 30 fish up to 9 pounds. All and all it was fun but not to par for the opener at Pyramid standards.

We have been spoiled for sure. World class numbers and we gripe. Been feeling like the fishery has had to plateau or at least slow down at some point. 5 years ago we got over 350 on opening day. Over half were between 5# and 15#. Steadily seen it flatten out in average size and numbers.

Indisputably one of the top trout fishing destinations in the world and I feel fortunate enough to have seen it grow to where it is in front of my very eyes. Incredible stuff happening.

I can only assume it is the increase of water flow into the lake. Reno has reduced things by decreasing summer watering thru schedules. I know that the local hatchery has been sending them north to the lake for planting. I just hope the marina is open for some of the traffic.:129fs238648:......Jetspray

I don't think the launch is open. While I was waiting at the ranger station to get my boating decal I noticed about a dozen guys fishing from shore but there were no vehicles with trailers or no one launched while I was there from 7:30 to 8:15AM.

Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using TapatalkSpoiled indeed!! Ive been going to the opening for about 16 years now ( I've been fishing there since 1984 when I was 11). The first 5-6 years we just trolled and did well. But once we started jigging we got 200 fish a day to the boat. Some years were less and some more. We started to get really big fish consistently 7 years ago. The average waights of the fish have been going up until a few years ago and has plateaued for us as well.
