Well cant sleep so off to Laf. Res. for some trout and then to Walnut and Pacheco Creeks for salmon photo opps if there there yet. Will report later with results. Got in the water at 7ish and 1hr later fish on. Off the lake at 9 in search of salmon to no avail. Even peddled down the canal trail in search of pics but only blue herons,egrets and quackers but the water was pretty clear. So maybe with some more rain flush and higher water they will appear ?

Beautiful Mack. There is someplace in the world with blue skies and is somewhat warm. Nice trout. I'd love to fish off that dock.

I've seen that view so many times, but that fancy dock must be new. It must be concrete, but it looks like tile. Thanx for the report and pics.

It is concrete and very stable, the old one is wedged up against the dam. And they put down wood chips to keep us from slipping on the way down the trail.

Man I wish we had some of those blue skies over here today. Pyramid Lake 3-5 foot waves at times. Nice report.

For the two hrs I was there the waves hit about one to two inches with wind gusts bad enought to tilt my sorry old hat up an inch or two also. It was tough dealing with these harsh conditions but I managed to take my gloves off within 30 seconds or so before the first PB install on that very cold hook and cast that not so freezing line out before the lake iced over. Luckly another fisherman walked down the ramp to the dock to break up all the ice that was never going to form infact he was kind enough to put on some sun screen before got burnt taking my pic with that monster Laf. Res. behemoth.
(Gosh thats a lot of bull)
