    Were you guys fishing from tubes? My friends and I hiked up to Koeneman Lake a few weeks ago to try fishing for bass and trout and it was impossible to try and fish the area from shore.

    Hook them, mark your GPS plotter. Hook them again, mark your GPS plotter. Continue until you've emptied your fly box or filled your GPS plotter.

    Sorry man, I just had to give you some grief.

    Those nasty little anchor ropes, left over hazards from long ago, it would be interesting to see what they must look like all decorated with rusty deteriorating flies. If you were putting in from the old camp side of the lake they are roughly in the middle just to the left of the put in, if you look closely you can just make out the location, the tops barely break the surface and can be seen if you look for them.

    Someone should find the article on the radiation experiments done on that lake--and post a copy at the trailhead. I'm certain it would go a long way towards stopping the poachers.

    Sorry been gone awhile, the old camp is to the right after you cross the creek, fairly easy to spot, its just below where the road pretty much ends, or right above the old boat launch, should be some signs of it concrete pad I think.

    The last boat someone managed to drag in there was mainly used by the local poachers until someone shot the thing full of holes and sank it, thank goodness.
