    A little early, but I'm sure I'll be there already, also desperately trying to "kill" them with the chironomid thing. I was there last year but ended up just meeting Mac.

    Let's say second weekend in April.

    Okay Bhudda, you brought it up, now you're in charge. Date(s), where to stay, etc. Time to put up. Let us know.
    Got these new quick release indicators that are great for that deep chronie stuff.

    I'm already planning on being there on the 23/24 of April. If anyone wants to be there during that timeframe, I'll be happy to show you what I know. I'm by no means an expert, but I was lucky enough to have an old-timer show me the ropes a few years ago and have managed to do reasonably well on chironomids each of the last few springs.

    well i think that the weekend of the 23rd - 25th of april is just fine, maybe do a little competition fly tourney at R.F. on the way out sun. if your heading west that way. might be eventful. ill come up with a prize, maybe something really worthy like a reel or something :smokin break up into teams with time limits at each spot and a ref., hey BobL you interested in the position. we could camp at the north end of the campgrounds with those devilishly mean racoons}( . WHADDUP T.R. ?

    I was busy drinking all of the beer that I could lay my hands on. Also my float tube didn't hold my butt out of the water so I went home. But I'll be better prepared this time. I'll just sleep on the lake instead of drinking beer this time in a pontoon boat.


    I thought that last year it was on the 1st of May. But what do I know I'm just an old man. Hell I might even be senile.

    What was the dates last year? Didn't we go cause it was open early?

    I'm down to rock it again. That lake is alot of fun if the wind isn't to tough.

    I got a score to settle with that gang of raccoons.

    Count me in! This should be followed in May with the Okanogan Highland Fling. My place should be livable by then.

    Roper,

    Good things come to those who wade...

    Set a date and I will try to be there. Been looking for another go at that lake anyways. Had alot of fun the last trip there meeting many of you and learning some fly tying at the same time. This time at Dry Falls I hope to make up for last year and catch a few.

    Roper, The Highland thing sounds particularly good in mid to late May. My Ferry County-Okonogan County tour is taking place then and perhaps I can hook up with you guys. This years extended trip so far has penciled in Aenas, Beaver, Little Beaver, Beth, northern Blue, Chopaka, Ell, Long, Lost, Molson, Sidley and Wannacut. If I have missed something that I really should fish let know and I'll work it into the schedule.
    I'm anxious to hear what date you guys will settle on for Dry Falls-I'll go over the week before and conduct a fish aerobics class so they are all in shape by the time you guys show up!:) Ive
