That pic was taken at Coffeepot and is the culvert right next to the campground.

The upper coffee pot campground on the Henry's Fork??

Found It! never :rolleyes: mind

So hows the fishing there?- Can I fish from the bank/wade? How's the little creek between lower Twin and coffee pot lakes?? I dont want anyones secrets just curious. Looks like a good area to camp-fish minus the snakes :eek:

The area is very "snaky". I have found snakes there last spring when we had a warm day. If your bored with snakes there were also plenty of ticks. Ah, springtime in the land of sage and sun!

I don't like snakes on land, but the thought of a swimming rattlesnake while in a float tube just gives me the chills.

My dog pissed on a rattlesnake when he was a pup. The snake just left the neighborhood (what would you do??). I suspect next time he might not be so lucky.

Vladimir:

Like the attitude, piss on them! Isn't there a joke about be bitten in a certain spot - "You're gonna die." If you don't like snake, ticks, scorpions & black widows, stay on the west side. All part of the experience. That is why I posted on the "tick twister".

I was out fishing with my dog in the basin weekend before last. Between us, we picked up about 25 ticks. I would have to agree that this might be a bad year for them. I don't even want to think about what it would have been like if I was wearing just a t-shirt instead of a jacket over everything.
