Spectacular Lake...

Spectacular Lake...

Truly an amazing body of water, one of the few places in Oregon you can target Trout 24 hours a day.... Something about catching a Hog and yelling "Fish-On" and your partner looks you dead in the face with his headlamp on bright; instant blindness... The the fish takes a run and all heck breaks loose...
Have some great memories on that lake..
Great report... So much water and so little time... Oregon!!
