This is a new one by emerald anglers.
Thanks - I'd never heard of this shop. Up to 40 anglers. Hmmmmmmm
I think there's 35 signed up. That was hearsay though.
Have you got a poling platform on your boat? Just kidding. I hope the smoke isn't too thick for the fishing tomorrow. Have fun.
Do any good?
I wondered if the jamboree folks had much luck, it was cloudy and rained in Ephrata Saturday morning but cleared up later in the day. I thought about running up there but decided 35 or so folks fishing was too many for me. Waited until this morning instead.

The lake is down in elevation maybe two feet, adds new "flats" for wading and this mirror carp followed a slow twitched olive jig. Very decent carp for this lake, the eight weight was needed.

Found this one nudging rocks aside next to the old highway.............
Evidently your recovery is progressing nicely, Pat!
I'm feeling darn good but I also took it really easy wading and pulling back on the carp ;-)
I wish I could find some rocky flats like that over on this side of the lake. They're all mud, or more likely clay, that suck your shoes off when you try to wade.
But then again you have that wonderful river where the carp sometimes come to you! But I hear you, I really do love this particular "beach". I did try wading a portion of the lake up your way; about 50 feet from where I started I got stuck (in the mud).
So there were 19 in the tournament which is still great for the first year. Fishing was best in the morning and just before check-in time at the camp (4pm). First place caught 4, two of us caught 3 for 2nd and 3rd place. I came in 2nd due to one of my fish being the biggest caught. Here's the pictures:
Nicely done, Matt! Love the mirror. Find these on your new flat?
