Not Much

Met Yuki out at Camanche North Shore last Friday the 21st.

Didn't have any expectations and it's a good thing because we got SKUNKED. It wasn't just us, it was everybody out there.

I would suspect they planted sometime around the 13th or 14th (Presidents Holiday weekend) and the fish had a full week to disperse into the lake. 

That's OK though. Gave Yuki and I a chance to catch up since we hadn't fished together since OCTOBER. Holy Cat Chow Batman. Well, we're caught up now.

In some of the previous posts I've mentioned the old arthritis problem. Having visited the Orthopedic Surgeon in December, he wants to replace the hip this year. Going to have to wait until at least September after camping season. Reservations are already made for next month at Camanche South Shore at the Trout Pond (full hookups) to do a trial run in the new trailer. Make sure everything works and we have everything we need before heading out.

June will find us at Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.

July will find us at Hope Valley (as usual) fishing, camping, and kayaking.

The end of August is our yearly trip to Upper Lake for four nights with the kids in the space next to us just like last year. Fishing, swimming, kayaking, and watching spectacular sunsets. In 2021 we have two trips planned to Upper Lake (already booked). One in June and one at the end of August.

Then we can think about hip replacement.

All that said, the picture below is the main reason I have so much trouble walking along the shore. Even if I didn't have the hip problem it is still difficult (as most who fish there know) to walk on the rocks. Some big, some small, but all loose.

That's all I have this time. 

Stay tuned


  1. We are old car, I also have to operate on a herniated groin, and good patience and mentally prepare ....

  2. Mark postpone the surgery until the end of the camping season. That is something I would do.
    My hips are OK but I can relate to the pain rocks can inflict.

    Get in all the good stuff before the surgery; as we get older we need to take advantage of everyday given!!
