    Yeah it is like towing someone off a lake, which I have done numerous times, just the feeling of helping out......Jetspray

    I feel your pain. I hope a young kid found it, and still uses it to this day.
    I was on a backpack trip in the Marble Mtns. in Northern CA many years ago and my buddy lost his prized Browning knife on the hike in. We had set up camp on a small creek about halfway into a group of lakes we were headed to. Along came 2 guys and a girl who were headed to the same area. They stopped and talked with us for about 15 minutes when one of the guys asked “hey did you guys lose a knife?” My buddy was thrilled. A couple of hours after they left, I noticed a nice little ultralight rod and reel leaning against a tree. Aww man, the guy left his rod. Too much time had passed to chase him down. The next morning we set out for the lakes. I carried his rod with me. Got to the first lake, no one there, and we set up camp. The next morning I decided to take a hike to one of the neighboring lakes, only about a half mile away. I took my rod and the other guy’s too in hopes of running into them. Well, there they were. Felt very good handing over that rod. He was so thankful. Told me he thought he would never see it again since they were taking a different return trail.

    The out-of-state for California is $148 for us. The out of state for Nevada is $80. I pay $248 for Pyramid for the year and this year I only went once, still cheap in my boat. When I left California in 2006 my State & Federal income taxes took my entire salary, we lived on my wife's pay...….Jetspray

    Not to kick a dead horse but the Calif. regs on the bottom page 48 call for Art lures with barbless hooks.

    You do know that you can use a bike to get there, don't you ?

    Later.
