Went to the meadows yesterday.* This time, no snow storm.* It was 33 degrees and windy to start.* Then turned to glass.* Fishing was about the same as it was last week.* Bunch of rainbows, no browns.* Pretty much non stop action, all though we had a strech of time when the water was perfect glass that we didn't catch anything, once the wind picked up, it was hot again.*

Saw alot of wildlife, 3 Does on the bank that hung out in the sun for a while.* A brown bear just as we were leaving to go home.* Then on foresthill rd we spotted a huge forked horn by the side of the road, with one side of his antlers completely broken off hanging in front of his face!* Either he was fighting, the rut is starting, or hit by a car.* He was just standing there with a glazed look on his face. His head was all bloody.....it was pretty crazy.

Anyways here are some pics..


Air Force Plane that buzzed us!!

I used to fish there 25 yrs ago....We would catch nice 2-3 lb browns from shore during deer season near the dam. Always a good population of bears in that wildlife preserve. Thanks for the report!!!!!
