    Actually I am a product of Northwestern Univ, and THE Ohio State University. I have a son at UW, one at WSU, and another will be attending Gonzaga next year. So I wear all their colors, except UW because purple is so ugly. And Northwestern is the big purple too.

    Sounds like 1 out of your 3 kids will be a success. That's no bad.

    On the other hand, "A parent's only as good as their dumbest kid. If one wins a Nobel Prize but the other gets robbed by a hooker, you failed." Via twitter @shitmydadsays

    What if the hooker was a previous Nobel Prize winner?

    If a parent is only as good as their dumbest kid, I am trouble. One of my kids wants to be a lawyer. How could I have failed so miserably?

    Fished CP on Friday. Parking lot was loaded. The Northwest Womens Fly Club was there and a contingent from Ephrata. Fishing was a little slow in the morning but picked up nicely in the afternoon. Seems like the fish were congregated on the northern shorelines.
    I took a friend who has hasn't fished lakes much so I was really hoping he would tangle with some of these CP bruisers.
    He Did!! He caught two fish in the 22-25" range and had a smile on his face that wont be gone til Christmas. He has been a big-time steelheader but is branching out. The first fish he caught he said "this is bigger than some steelhead that I have caught"
    Good Times.
    Tyler there were a whole bunch of anglers on the lake that had no idea of your claim. You better spend more time over here!!!

    Well, in keeping with my gas comments!!

    I would not worry about it. Eighty dollars round trip in gas from Wenatchee at $3.93 a gallon. So from the coast that would be about $175 plus for the round trip.

    Isn't that the typical fee for a trophy lake??

    Irafly and I were at CP on Saturday 2-6pm after a tough morning at Sprague. I had to park against the bathroom because there were no other parking options. I counted over a dozen floating craft visible from the boat launch. People at the launch said it had been good early that day and tapered off. We found a few on chironomids then I switched to stripping a nymph in the shallows and picked up 4 in the last hour. We got off the lake after Ira decided to go for a swim off his pontoon boat. It was a very good thing that 1) Ira is an excellent swimmer, 2) we stayed relativley close to the launch, and 3) we had spare fleece layers available. If any of you saw the wet, cold guy changing near the silver 4Runner, that was him!
