Fall Is Here

Fall fell this day at 4:44 pm est. Yesterday it rained like hell here in Northern California., but I will not show you pictures because I assume that pictures of water would be the last thing the folks in Colorado would like to see. I have great sympathy for them.

This morning it was 40 degrees outside and 60 degrees in the house. Donner Summit (on highway 80) got snow.

I fired up the wood stove for the first time this year.

I already miss summer.

Tuesday Yuki and I are going to hit Silver Lake in hopes that there are still a few fish around.

Friday we are heading out in the new travel trailer for three days on the Delta. I got some hints on fishing over there and I'll let you know if I catch anything. I will definitely be on unknown ground.

Happy Fall fishing.



  1. Mark, fall arrived here in CO about the same way as it did out there. We started the day with nice warm temperatures, then the low elevation rain high elevation snow moved in and the temperatures felt a lot more like fall. Today, the tops of the mountains have a good amount of white. Amazing how fast the seasons can change...

  2. Fall got here a bit earlier...about 9 a.m. while I was in the middle of major yard work, meaning I was drenched by the time I was's just water.

  3. Mark
    Fall is my favorite time of the year, not too hot or cold. It has been in the low 80's all week here, and yes the humidity is gone for this year. Have a good trip in the new ride.

  4. I miss summer too even though I don't feel like I took advantage of it this year. Oh well, Let's slay them this fall!

  5. Thanks, Mark, for thinking of those of us who call Colorado home. It has been a rough two year period between the fires last year and the floods this year. I suppose everybody probably knows that by now. Anyway, cooler temperatures should lead to some good fishing. Somewhere?

  6. I'm so ready for Fall. I do not like the, the cool, crisp air is very welcomed! Hope you get some good Fall fishing in... : )
