First, if you're a baseball fan and you're not watching the Little League World Series, you are missing some superb baseball games. After all, the are the Best, of the Best, of the Best (got that from Men in Black).
Wednesday, a day to relax. Since I'm still feeling the effects of my "trip" on Monday, I thought I'd take my spinning gear, a foam pad, and just sit up at Caples Lake and enjoy the day. Got there at 0845, a little late, but Hey, it's just a day to relax. Since it was expected to be some what warm today I figured the higher, the cooler.
Couldn't get the place I had on Friday the 13th, so I went a little further to the right. Far enough away from the guy fishing there to not be a bother. Put out two rigs with PB and plunked my butt on the pad. Enjoyed the scenery, the weather, and just be outdoors. Did I mention that I didn't catch anything?
An hour or so into the day, the people on the other side of the guy in the hole I wanted, left. I packed up and went over there. Caught a couple of small ones. You know, 9" or so. Then the guy in the hole I wanted left. Now I'm ready for a for a good sit, couple of good sized fish (like the ones on Friday the 13th, and spend the rest of the day being a slug. Did I mention it was getting noticeably warmer? So I had a three count of Rainbows that I caught. Nothing else interested in my offerings. I sat for a while and then my mind started "What if I go to Red Lake and see what's happening there?" The lady at Cooks Station said a couple of guys got limits before Cooks opened on Monday Morning.
Should I? This was supposed to be a day of rest, although it was getting warmer and Red Lake is higher. I went. Arrived at 1045 and got my usual spot. Nobody there. Not a good sign? Never detered me before. Set up one rod with PB and silver Kastmaster on the other.
Over the next two hours, I caught and released 9 Brook Trout in the 9" - 11" range and put 5 on a stringer (bleeding) for Bob (I plow for fish). Got to keep him supplied, Winter is coming although you wouldn't know it from the temperature today. Since I had my limit, I headed home. I got there at 1:00pm and it was an even 100 degrees on my back porch. Keep in mind that I live at 3200 feet in elevation. It's currently 106 in Sacramento. OUCH.
Well, I'm going back upstairs and sit in front of the air conditioner. It's cool down here, but cooler in front of the A/C.
Till the next time I get out and about.
