Hit 395 headed south in Mrs. Jetspray's little truck with Dave at 0600. Just north of Topaz a deer attacked the truck. Took out the drivers side mirror and caused a couple of small dents. Went back to check if the deer was in the road but she had split. Hope she's ok. Arrived at Bridgeport around 0720 and first checked out the marina for future boat trips then tried the east shore at the fisherman's access point. Fished an hour or so with no luck. Decided that it was too shallow so we headed for the dam. Fished there a couple of hours with no success. Weren't interested in Worms, Gulp or Kastmasters. Talked some other folks trolling in boats and a guy with a toon. They had no luck either. The Cormorants and Pelicans were doing better. Headed back to Bridgeport and had lunch at The Barn. Good as always. Checked the box in front of Ken's and saw only 3 fish. Next a brief stop at the Little Walker. The water was clear and as of yet not too high. Didn't fish. Stopped at the 395 Bridge on the W. Walker. The water was a little high but had good color. Fished downstream from the bridge with Panther Martins and Mepps with just a couple of hits. Headed back to the Carson Valley. Totals for the day. 0 trout and 1 deer. Next time Dave. Thanks for the ride. It was a wonderful day.

Even when you guys don't catch fish you still have interesting post. I like your post better though when you nail them trout. Next time you should just put the deer out of it's misery then you'll be guarunteed some meat for dinner.

`It's not usually until July and August that the water levels on the W. Walker get low enough for some good fishing in the canyon. Always get my lunch at Walker Burger. Love the shady patio.

Sounds like Dave's wife's truck dodged a bullet with that deer. I have a feeling your next post will have much better news to report (fishing and vehicle wise).

Cheers,

Not too much damage only $580 for the replacement mirror (electronic control 1994 truck), oh well it could have been a newer vehicle but then I would have had to fix the dents too. Nice having you along CC for the adventure......Jetspray

I always love to visit Bridgeport. One of my most favorite places there is/was Rhino's. It was for sale last time I was thru there...few years back. Is it still there ? Great watering hole and decent food. Love their T-shirts too :-)

Still there and still popular with the biker crowd.
