Yikes!!! Those snappers always make ya a little uneasy to step foot in the same area the next time. I dicovered one of those "logs" on the Trimbelle awhile back. What stream were you on?

That's a weird coincidence that you posted that, i had the exact same thing happen while night fishing on the brule this week. After about 4 or 5 strips after casting out a zoo cougar fly it felt like i snagged a rock and then i felt it start shaking. I didn't know what to think, so i flipped on my headlight and watched the snapper drift down towards the guy i was fishing with......with my fly in it's mouth! I put some pressure on and luckily the hook popped out, you can bet that porter wasn't happy with me for swing that snapper in his direction! grin.gif

it's been slow, but a few nice fish have been coming to net every once in a while. hopefully with the weather cooling down a bit things will pick up.

What kinds of things spark the fall run of fish? Do browns move into the streams sooner than the salmon and 'bows?

Browns can tollerate much warmer water than bows and salmon and in the brule they start trickeling in around the end of july or early august. I haven't seen many lake runs at all yet this year. the water is still too low and warm, i've been after the nice residents that the river holds. Water levels and temps are what trigger all lake run fish, it's just that browns can handle a little warmer water.

      Thank you for the zip code, for the last 3 years I lose the tailgator reception at night around 8 I never know what zip code to try I sure hope it works.  All day everything is fine, evening comes I lose signal.

      I used the thumbnail method with all but the heavier split rigs.  If you're doing a bunch it gets sore.  I then use a small eye glass screw driver.  Once I get it started to remove the old one I slip the new one in behind it.  One falls off and the other on.   Careful, those small trebles are hard to hang onto and sticky sharp.

      really neat to see the lake from the aerial view!  Cool to see all the roads and the paths out there.  Kinda fun to look at the road systems and name what resort they are from...

      Was just out on ice and a big difference from yesterday.  Most water has found a hole or two or ten to drain back down.  Minimal water on the lake once get away from the accesses at least on the north end of the lake.  Houses should be fine unless in a low spot with no holes anywhere near.

      Did not like how they ended the reg and OT, they got a shot to go in Reg but in neither situation did it look like we had a plan other than "somebody make a play"... But overall I really like this group.
