Getting ready to hit the sack.

Just a heads up. Hwy 26 will be closed at government camp from 5:00-6:30 so plan around that if your coming up tomorrow.
Awesome fishing this evening. Lost one trophy. See everyone soon

I will be fulfilling a promise to teach an old friend how to fly fish at Trillium Lake on Saturday. I'll miss Friday night campfire but I will be on the water by 8:30 Saturday morning. Sorry guys this is the best I can do this year. Thanks for stepping up and covering for this event Jeff!:thumb:

Troutmasta is there anything you all need or want me to bring with? I will be bringing my boat without motor of course will have room for one maybe 2
if they don't mind a small front seat. One more question is there any campsites still open if so I would bring my tent camper.

Bring with? Maybe marshmallows pleaase!
There are plenty of spots open. Including room for a tent camper in mine if you choose. The weather is great and the fishing is better !

Fishing was alright, saw a few decent fish pulled throughout the weekend. I am not one to trust myself from dropping my phone in the water so I do not have any pics, sorry. But I did have a lot of fun hanging out with Troutmasta, who had everything setup for the big gathering. it was great meeting Scott and OntheFly and everyone else that came out on Sat (I have a shipoopy memory so not all the names are coming back to me atm). Scott was able to make it after pulling a 8 hour shift and 11 hour drive back from Montana. I would have been dead after that.
I finally broke my fly reel (been missing a screw or two for a few months), spool decided to take a swim. I didn't notice until after the second fish and only since my line seemed to be getting shorter. Jeff was able to pull the spool back up from the water depths. I said screw it and kept on fishing, just as Troutmasta was asking me if I was going back in to work on it, I threw the line back out and had a fish on. I fished with the spool sitting next to me on my toon for the rest of the weekend, with only one more dunking of the spool. Just another point in the Fly rods favor, with any gear reel I would have been done.

Great weekend, weather was dry and the wind calmed down when it mattered.

Good fishing with everyone that was able to come out and hope to see you guys and more next year

Bagold aka Ben

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to make it this year, Steve. :sad: I don't know why no one has posted pics yet, either. Jeff???
