    Re: Eagle Lake last weekend

    I just think a re-think needs to take place in California, a balance of nature and people. Everything cannot be PG&E's fault for trying to supply everyone with electricity. Wind mills and solar panels will just not supply enough in any case. Life moves on.....Jetspray

    I gotta say, if the cloud seeding provides more water, even if the motive is ulterior (duh), the fishing is beneficiary of that extra water. As I see it. I have NO facts so you can easily shoot me down, if you like. But to my way of thinking, after the past 10 or 15 years of drought, any water is good water as long as it's clean.

I have sonar to find the fish but mostly I'll just sit around eagle nest and drift bait.

    Wanna go?
    It is temping to say the least. I am still in recovery after surgeries this year, we will see how 2020 shapes up for trips....Jetspray
