Today, once I got to the check in, I found out that the gentleman in the little hut doesn't take your fee, they have an electronic fee gizmo that you put your money in and it gives you a ticket for your dashboard. Put in more than the $8.00 fee and it gives you gold dollars in change. Cool, I could put in $10.00 and get two gold dollars for the Grandkids. I put in $10.00, got two quarters in change. What's wrong with this picture? Fortunately I could reverse and work it out with the guy in the hut since I was the only one in line. Gave him the two quarters, got the $2 change (bills, no gold dollars for the kids) and I was off.
First I cruised by Angels Point and snapped a picture. Can you see the guy fishing down there? The only guy fishing there? The shadow is me standing on the road.

The next stop was Glory Hole point. Nice parking area, room for a gazillion vehicles with boat trailers. Mostly empty today, so I parked right at the end. There was a nice gravel drive to walk down to the lake. About the same distance (Cardio walk) as the walk from the gate at Bear River Reservoir to the dam. Set up two rods, one with Rainbow Power Bait and the other with Florescent Red Power Bait (it's pink).
Then the fog started coming in. Then the wind started to blow. Then it got cold. Then I moved to the right so that I could have the line straight into the wind and not have a HUGE bow in the line. Then I moved to the other side of the pennisula.

Then the fog rolled in, it got colder, so cold that I walked up to the truck and got my parka and gloves, and then it got down right miserable. Cold, foggy, wet, and windy. I'll only do miserable for so long and then call it a day. This is what it looked like when I left. They joys of winter in the Central Valley in California.
Till the next adventure.
