Time for another road trip...9-11-15
Image

It was a little smokey coming up Owens Valley towards Bishop last Monday and there were some thunderstorms forcast for early in the week...but we had reserved a great campsite at Silver Lake (in the June Lake Loop) and a 27' trailer from Adventure in Camping...so it was on...weather cooperating or not!

Image

It rained the first day and evening so we just set up camp and told some lies while drinking and kicking back in our luxurious digs...with the heater on!

Image

Carson Peak cleared up a little on Tuesday with some light showers and really heavy winds, so we went for a drive around the loop to check out the conditions at the other lakes in the loop. It was WINDY everywhere, including little Gull Lake...It looked like Rush Creek was the only protected place to fish the Hobies. I figured we could fish the creek and then be blown back across Siler Lake to our campsite.
The Creek was Awsome as usual and didn't disappoint with the trout catches and sightings. It was so calm back there and QUIET!

As if it was perfect enough....then these two showed up and made my day...

Image

Image

There were lots of little Brook Trout that we caught and released on the worms.

Image

Then it was time to pay the piper and go back across the windy lake....

Image

We hit the creek for three days and the fishing was really good. Once the weather cleared out, life was good!

Image

We set 4 Crawdad traps on Wednesday afternoon along the banks were Rush Creek goes into Silver Lake. There were actually Big Crawdads crawling along the creek bottom in broad daylight and we were able to net a few with the landing net. They were GIANT...!
Image

We trapped about 150 with those 4 traps and most of them were quality bugs.
The Crawdad boil that evening made us a lot of friends in the campground...

Image

Thursday was one of those picture post card days in the Sierras just made to let a few newbies try the Hobies...

Image

We set 8 traps on the south side of Silver Lake on our last night and pulled them the next morning hoping to bring some Dads home for a couple of parties here in town.
It was a really cold night...I had to scrape ice off the windshield and the Hobie Vantage seats the next morning...luckly I had folded the seatbacks down so at least we wern't sitting on ice.

Image

We killed em...WFO on big monsters.

Image

Plenty to bring home...

Image

I'm already looking forward to next summer up there...!!!
