I really wanted to run down to Sacramento and do some Shad fishing today, but it's already 11:00 am and I still have 900 things to do, so it looks like I'll have to pass.

I got a really nice comment from Dave at Detroit Sports and More Blog on the Blog Catalogue. Thanks Dave. It makes all this worth while. I added a link to Dave's blog on my blogroll. Stop by and say hi. There's a lot more than fishing on his blog.

The weekend is here and since I'll still have 800 or so things to do, I don't think I'll be fishing until next week. Next week the DFG will be planting Union Valley Reservoir, Ice House, and Loon Lake off Highway 50. Caples, again, and Silver Lake off Highway 88.

This last week, the DFG planted Lower Sardine Lake in Sierra County. This reminded me of a humorous situation that occurred some years ago. I was camping with some friends and we decided to go to Sardine Lake. Back then, and I don't know how it is now, but the road to Upper Sardine Lake (this is a beautiful high mountain lake) from Lower Sardine lake was 4 wheel drive and almost straight up. It was one of those roads that you had to get a run at it, keep going or you'll have to turn around and go back down. OK, so I told my friend, you go first and don't forget that you have to stop when you get to the top because it goes over and down to the lake really fast.

Off he went, got to the top, saw the girl that was sunbathing without her top and almost
drove into the lake. We laughed about that for years.

Well, till next time remember: "A bad day fishing is worth it, especially if you see a girl sunbathing without her top".
