Then I sat for two hours changing colors of Power Bait, adding a scent here and there, and had I need to, would have had plenty of time to pick my nose. Yes, it was that exciting.
I don't think Caples has been planted since 2009 and I haven't caught anything since the one I caught last August 2nd, but I am an equal opportunity fisherman, so I gave it a shot.
Since I had so much time on my hands and everyone said keep taking pictures, here are a couple.

Did I tell you they moved the road construction from the Bear River access road out to Highway 88? Yup, wait in line and follow the pilot car only this time there really was a pilot car. The wait was relatively short. I think 5 minutes was the max. No way to get around it, they're working 24/7.
Silver Lake, check in, and out to the rock. One line with Power Bait, one line with a crawler. First fish came at 5 minutes and the other 3 came in the next hour. All caught on Power Bait. The delicate part of this catching was being away from my red Coleman camping chair to put fish on the stringer and getting back to the chair before it was blown into the lake, again. I was successful with that. The old boy can move pretty quickly when necessary. I called it a day at Noon with four on the stringer. I could have hung out and caught the other one, but I had some chores to attend to at home.
That's it for today.
