    Gonna be headed over the pass to fish the opening weekend. Opener is March 1st, and my totally-not-set-in-stone plan is to head over from Kitsap on Friday after work and camp out or get a room somewhere, with the plan to meet up with Ira and his brother, and fish Saturday/Sunday then head home Sunday night.

    As of right now plans are pretty loose. The only real plan is to fish hard both days and have a good time. Beyond that I'm flexible. I'll be bringing my 10' pram that fishes two and a ton of gear, so if someone is interested in either riding with or meeting over there I will have a seat. I'm pretty easy to get along with. My only requirements is no whining. Rain or shine I'll be fishing. Drinking and smoking a plus! **Must approve of vertical presentation and two rod endorsement aka dynamite**



    Anyway, if anyone is interested shoot me a message and we can work out the details. Should be good fishing. Will definitely be a good time.

    Man, another opportunity I'd love to take advantage of. That sounds like a blast!

    I'm heading out of the country on the 22nd of February so I'm gonna miss out on the spring season. Here, at least. I hope to get into some fish in northern Ireland though.

    Have a great weekend out there!

    I have no plans to travel that weekend so if no work pops up I would be in but sadly work can always pop up on a seconds notice :(

    I have a tent if camping is the plan or 11ty billion hotel points at every chain imaginable. I can also bring a yak or float tube or pram...

    My guess is they would be at Quincy. Guys, correct me if I'm wrong. Or could it be Leniece.

    Good luck to all. Wish I could join you. Never fished Quincy.

    My fishing education is incomplete.

    Yesterday Ira was talking about Leniece and the opener in the same sentence. I'll be at Quincy as, weather permitting, I have friends camping there for the weekend.

    I'll be at Lenice on Sunday, March 2. Only ice will keep me off the lake for this one day. I'll tough out the wind

    I'm at work but I'll get back with folks this evening.

    Lake details will be discussed via PM. Don't want to risk ending up on anymore outhouse walls

    May see you at Quincy Mr Bill. I may need some more chrono lessens from you. Any room for Lindsey in your pram if she comes?

    I probably won't have my pram there as I'll have friends camping lakeside. I don't know how easy it will be to fly fish from shore.

    I'll be fishing at least one day if not both. I would be honored to meet up with Nick and Ira if that could be arranged.
