Mystery Update

Well, I've talked to the two who might know about the explosion at Tabeaud and have come up with no answer. One possibility is that there is some kind of purge valve, but I find that unlikely since the intake for the flume is better than 200 yards away and the intake to the lake is a 1/4 mile or more. The other idea is that it's a volcanic gas "burp" (thanks to Detroit Sports & More). After all, I do live in Volcano and Tabeaud is not all that far away.

I saw it, heard it (not an explosion), and didn't have my camera handy to take a picture of it. So, your guess is as good as mine. The mystery remains.

Countdown to Oregon: I was a little eager last Friday when I said 20 days, it was more like 26 days. Today it's 20 or October 8th.

Till next time, remember: "A bad day fishing is better than any day at work".



  1. Shoreman - I'm going with a PO'd relative of the Loch Ness monster.

    Actually, the volcanic "burp" does sound like maybe the most logical explanation.

    Usually, when weird stuff happens to me while I'm fishing, my only concern is how it affects the fishing - I'm pretty single-minded when fishing. I once nearly stepped on a dead body while wet wading (not kidding) - it ruined the whole evening's fishing. And it had started out pretty good.


  2. Hey Wolfy. Gee, I can't imagine why stepping on a dead body would ruin a good day of fishing. But, hey, stepping on dead bodies isn't for everyone. LOL.
