After fishing Cady for the last two years I have come to several conclusions about the fishery. The first is that we are damn lucky on the west side to have a fishery such as Cady. Secondly, if Larry (the proprietor of the B&B) did not pump as many dollars out of his own pocket into BUYING fish for the lake, it would not be half the fishery that it is. I am definately not well off (in fact I am once again a student with a family on a fixed income). However, whenever I fish Cady I think putting 5 to 10 bucks in the donation box is the least I can do to help out with the costs of maintaining the road. porta pot, and fish stocking efforts in the lake. Ten bucks is preety cheap compared to the $150 you'd pay for any other private lake in the state. I'm not going to spout out what he pays for fish and upkeep of the launch he leaves as public every year, but after talking to him, I know the cost far outweighs the donations. I'd be worried that without more contributions from the public users ofthe lake, we might not hav that special Westside fishery to rely on. Besides, where else can you go to catch 30-plus inch fish in a small lake for a minor fee in Western Wa. and have Wagner, Vivaldi, or Roger Whittaker playing in the background...boy, that is soothing on those days after too many brews!! Anyhow, Larry is pumping alot of his own bucks into the lake...we should encourage all anglers to donate something everytime they fish. Go Cougars!!
