Brown & Rainbow Trout, White Bass, Crappie, Mule Deer, Bighorn Sheep, & Marmot

I always try to include pictures in my reports. Pictures that give away the location to anyone who has fished there, so they'll recognize it. If you do know the spot, please don't name it in your reply. Thank you
James




I"ve been fishing my home lake

whenever I get a chance. Mostly catch smaller Browns & Rainbows. Did catch a decent Brown on a tube jig. He jumped four times on the way in (rare for the Browns here)











Headed back out to one of my favorite lakes for more ice off action


First cast hooked a monster (almost 24 inches)

Somehow tore my thumb up (some deep cuts) grabbing net off of rocks. Glass maybe? Anyway, didn't get good pictures of my fish :( This shows his length, but I don't like the pic..


Caught that one on a Rapala, and 2 more stocker size (plus had 2 get off) on a HD Trout. Tried the long rod, but too windy (for me)

My thumb kept bleeding. I'd stick it in the water, then hold it to my net. That would stop it for awhile, but fishing kept it opening up..

Love this lake, but unless I can talk Jevan or Jim into going back w/ float tubes, I probably won't go back for awhile..


At least I caught a nice one















Some Deer in the backyard













Brian and Anthony let me know the White Bass were biting, so I headed out ;D (weekend before last)

Sheep on the way down


First fish of the day (on a white Northland Slurpy Swimming Grub)

Shad, but cool that it bit..

Then got into a few Whites (only small) Caught on the Slurpy, and on Gulp minnows


Then found some Crappie (Slurpy)


Caught a lot of dink Bass throught the day, going for Crappie (Gulp minnow & small crankbait)


Finally some bigger Whites swam through (Slurpy & BPS Tripple Ripple grubs) I've gone back since and caught some a little bigger


When they left the Crappie bite was picking up, and I found some really nice ones (Gulp minnows & BPS Tripple Ripples)


Thanks again Catfishking an Kokaneeking for the heads up!

Nice, James. Glad you are getting out. I might have to try some open water fishing now,.since icing is getting sketchy. :mad:

But one must abide.

James, it is always a pleasure to read your posts. Thanks for sharing. Watch out for that white guy with the big ears; people have written stories about him.
