I didn't want to drive forever, so after looking at the DFW site for fish plants, I decided on Bear River Reservoir since it was the only lake near by that they planted this week.
I will admit that Bear River has been less than stellar for some time now, but a chance was better than a long drive.
I pulled out of the house at 7:45 and after a coffee stop at Cook's Station got to the lake at about 8:30. It is a bit longer drive from Jackson than from the old house up in Volcano.
I didn't plan on "working" very hard so I set up two rods with rainbow Power Bait and firmly parked my rear in the red Coleman camping chair.
While I was waiting, I took a couple current shots of the lake.

|Wow, nice looking truck.|
|First fish of the day.|
There was only one other "incident" between then and when I left (the minivan was still high centered way over there) about 11:15. It would be my guess that the school of little Rainbows I got the two out of were getting their fins kicked by something BIG because they were flying, hell bent for scales away from a spot maybe 50 yards from where I was sitting. When I say "flying", they were out of the water hauling fins.
At least I didn't get skunked.
Maybe I'll get to fish again next week. Stay tuned.
