    Be careful out there. And if you want to have an actual shot at catching fish, you might consider a local beach for sea run cutthroat and/or greenlake, or beaver lake, or the Samammish Slough.. Try out this site's search function - The middle fork isn't going anywhere.

    All, I'm the new guy and, where I come from, the new guy buys the gas and drives. The company supplied me with a brand new 4wd for the summer months I'll be here.

    I'm on my way home to VT but back June 1st - interested in SRC's, streams and float tube fishng lakes...

    OK Allison, see if I've got this straight. You like to flyfish, you like to tie flies, you don't mind meeting strangers in public places, and you don't talk too much. Are you sure you're female?:rolleyes:

    Maybe a nice rallying point, like a sun shade canopy or something. Worked at Rattlesnake Lake. That way WWF members know to rally at a certain point to meet others from WFF. Be safe, good weather and tight lines.

    Allison, a couple of thoughts of mine based on these posts and others of yours I have read on this thread...you are kind of a buzz kill. Plans change..come and hang or don't... We want to tie flies or fish, swear, call each other names that may offend some, drink beers and hang out with people that like to do the same. I kicked around Rattle Snake Lake for our WFF outing on Saturday and did indeed ask people if they were on the forum...big deal...and guess what, a lot of people were! And if they weren't I told them they should be. There will probably be 8 people floating around flyfishing on GL thursday and 7 of them will be us. not too hard.

    Ed, great idea!!! I actually have two sort-of-tent-things from work. I haven't taken them out of the box yet, but I think they are probably at least 8'x8', like the style that people use at outdoor fairs and such...Probably could make on a dedicated WFF tent. That way we can represent and anyone can easily find us, although upon finding and meeting us, they wish they wouldn't have. :thumb:

    Don't think that I will make it to Green Lake tomorrow. I have wayyyyyy to much stuff to finish up at the homestead, before this weekend. Good Luck out there guys, and have an extra beer or two for me. :beer2:

    I'll be there. Probably showing up between 6:30 and 7:30. That NW parking lot on Eric T's map should be a good spot tomorrow as the wind is supposed to be from the NNW.

    I paddled around in this area for 40 minutes Sun night and there were birds, bugs, a few trout rises/dimples (I think) and some carp rolling. I couldn't figure out what anyone was eating in time to hook anything. It's pretty shallow (4-8') and weedy between the launch and the island, beyond that it drops off a bit (to 10-15') so plan your lines accordingly. I'll be driving a green Caddis V-tube.

    Eric

    I have my walk through tomorrow at 4 PM. I have no idea what's going on. SO you mighty have free beer but there's a possibility you might not have free beer.

    Everyone's bailing out. That may include me as well. The wife wants to head up to Canada tonight instead of tomorrow.

    You guys have a good weekend, eh.
