    Go to Lenice, thats where I would go. Pass is the local backyard lake for us westsiders, so going east would be a fun road trip!

    I use a homemade cart based on a "Wheel away" boat cart that I bought at Eastside Marine in Bellevue. It is designed to transport a small row boat or dinghy but with a few PVC modifications it makes an ideal transporter for my toon. I easily comes apart to fit in your car and it is equipped with good sized inflatable wheels so it's easy to maneuver. The one obstacle is a barrier gate at the start of the trail so you will need to devise a strategy to get your rig past it. I usually take the old trail to go around it or you can inflate your toon after you cross the gate. Good luck.

    I can't remember the exact weekend but last time I went to the area around Lenice in the Spring my dog got covered in Ticks. I HATE ticks!!! So, be careful where you decide to sit down.

    I second Cabezon's advice on checking the weather report for wind. It is frequently a trip killer anywhere in the Columbia basin.

    Wind can be killer and spoil a trip.

    As for ticks, they are all over eastern WA. I have only seen one tick on my waders over the years while fishing the dry side. As for dogs, I would expect that, with all the running through the sage, weeds and bull rushes. Just a fact of life over there. This subject comes up about this time every year......
