Wilson canyon on the way back home looks like the walker should have plenty of water this spring ;)

Sorry about the skunk. Water still too cold. Neat pics. More snow then when I was there on Saturday. Wilson Canyon looks good. They start stocking there in March. I may try Topaz again Sunday or Monday.

I always read shore reports from Topaz. Is it a no boat lake?

dave it is a boat lake but the wind was blowing 20 + mph all day. I have been told by others that fish it alot that spring time is a much better time to troll. wish I could at least get one calm day on my days off so I could get the boat back out :(

Mongo, them are some real perdy pictures thar buddy. :-? If'n you get that chain that's around your neck real cold, you ken smack it with somethen hard and escape. You could come on down here and we could go fishen for sturgeon in the big creek. :D You'd probably have to take your shirt off down here as it's a lot warmer than your used too, it's way above freezing, somethen like 38. :) I seen the sun yesterday, well for awhile any way, then it was spots, and after that everything went black. I keep forgetting to look away for a spell ::). It's all good, the Doc has me on the eye drops again, and he feels that cloudy days should be a good time for me to go fishing. Today he held up one finger and I saw it. I don't understand why he showed it to me as I was leaving, but I know his secretary said something to him just before he started jumping up and down. :-/

Yes, Topaz is a friendly lake to troll for trout and it's not an early rise to fish lake either.I've done good trolling in the summer months with jet skiers and water skiers buzzing around me all day while I'm trolling.

And it was nice of the Doc to wait till you were leaveing to show you a single finger.

Mongo,
Sorry on the skunk but look at the bright side I was stuck in office working all day Tuesday busting out a bid for CDOT and going home with a splitting headache. You were at a lake with a beautiful snow back drop & fishing.

:-/

Hmmm. easy choice.

Tim, I'm thinking we can catch some bigguns, it's looking perdy good rite now, muddy water and all. ;) Did ya hear that cagex3,? I said perdy again! ::) Cage, from where you live you can be at the fishing hole before I get set down on the toilet in the mornen. So if your willing, *I'm watching the tides and the weather, but if Mongo can drive thru the snow to get here, then, he deserves a Keeper Dino ;)Tim we also need to get Rick in on this, if he's not already fishing behind my back. 8-) Come on Rick, you've been awful quiet lately. :-X Leave your boat at home Tim, If we can't get Rick to put us up in his floating hotel, then we'll take my knee knocker. It's a little cold but, hey you can always put your shirt on. ;D ;D ;D

Thanks for the great pics Tim and sorry you didn't get into any. Atleast there will be some fish left for me when I finally get out there again. Last weekend was blown out and this weekend doesn't look much better. :-/

I went out there this morning because at my house there was barely any wind at all. Well I got to Topaz and the wind was howling about 25+ so I turned right around and came home. Maybe tomorrow.

I went out there Saturday and it was slow but atleast the wind didn't come up until I'd had enough. I caught one in three hours and lost another. Next week should be better fishing.

I think it will start picking up.

Reno weather will be low of 30 and highs of 50's Thur to Sunday !

Maybe that water temp might start to warm a little ................ ;)

Too early for the wind reports, might finally make it down?
