    i grew up in concrete and i know some of the methheads that lived there and probably still live there. i would like to have a lot there ,but i would never feel comfortable leaving anything there. have you checked into lake tyee lots? if the prices are comparable i personally would rather have a lot in lake tyee.

    Kerry, I do appreciate you letting folks know about the boundaries here at Vogler. The big headache with the bait fishing folks in the early years was the constant trespass and temper tantrums when they were told to vacate. I just recently insured that the road to the right does not even have "public access" concerning the easement to the back 400 acres. The signs have been confusing and I am working on making the situation clear through better signs.

    I noticed that there was a question concerning me being "weird". I thank you for vouching for me. Living next to a boat launch is not an easy thing and I do try to make more friends than enemies. Over the years, I have had to deal with everything from armed/violent psychotic ranting meth heads (Concrete is 3mi away!) to a van full of babes from Sweden. Guess which group I tried to be friends with? Guess which one I sent to jail? I am simply a normal fellow living in an unusual place. And, yes, I would like to earn a living here:beathead:. Thanks again.

    Thanks for the info and clarification Michael. Much appreciated and I plan to find Vogler Lake this year and fish it.

    Michael,

    Being a little strange isn't anything to be concerned about. 1st you live in the hills above Concrete. That right there will cause some to think your are a bit different. Hell, I live in the hills above Sedro. Most think I am a little on the weird side and they are likely correct. Being seen as a bit wierd isn't a bad thing. It causes people to ask themselves if they really want to know you. Personally the more folks I can get to ask themselves that question the better.

    See you in the spring.

    Your right about just living by Concrete; folks think your mentally challenged. That is the main reason I have pulled together and published some info about myself. I am from So. Texas (not Concrete) and my family tree has more than 1 branch. Sixth grade may have been my most favorite 3 yrs in life but I did receive a US Patent in Neonatal Transport Safety. Your final point is dead on. Being somewhat unpredictable is a high form of self defense when the 911 response time is 30min/3 days. However, I do try to not scare small kids and puppy dogs. Thanks for the note and don't forget to bring the PBR!

    Michael,

    Is there room to park a trailer at Volgler? I have a pontoon boat but I prefer to fish out of my drift boat. I've driven by the access before but never fished it and can't really remember what the access is like. Thanks.

    If your self contained, you have 39.76 acres, minus the 18 under the lake, and my living room.

    camping at baker lake is my favorite, meet a lot of good people, one smaller lake that's loaded with stockers, and beautiful scenery.. if it's warm, plenty of eye candy

    tons of camping space

    michael, i too have heard you were a strange cat, but i thought to my self, anyone who lives next to a lake would be strange like us fly fishermen, would be wierd. we are one with the fish ;) i would like to come check it out, just down the road in sedro-woolley!

    Baker Lake is a great place for the younger crowd and eye candy and Depression Lake is always productive. I have found spots up in the Baker area where you don't even need a pole, just line/hook/worm and one hell of a sinker. Hiking along the east side trail is where I have found Baker to be the most productive. Blue Lake use to be a great fishing trip but I haven't been up there in almost 10 yrs. The water at Grandy is questionable as it is down stream from about 200 septic tanks....I personally would not eat the fish or have an open wound while float tubbing it.

    There are a number of other places up here for the fly fisherman to explore. But, I'm not telling! Vogler is for the quiet folks that are looking to avoid the crowd. So far, so good! Thanks for the note and I'll see ya this spring.

    Michael, Do you have designated sites or is it just open area camping? Any hookups for electric? I've always thought about trying Vogler but wasn't sure about the access. I had at one time there were brookies in it?
