    It's also the last Saturday in April, which means Sun Lakes State Park will be full to capacity.

    Hey we could do the seeps. I mean it does not have the amenities that sun lakes has but instead of one lake you have a dozen lakes and can fish for Trout even Browns !! ,Bass and hog Carp. Just a thought.

    There is a large area above Sage. Just a thought. The seeps have such a varied awry from trout,carp & bass all within a fairly small area.

    I think that should be the final word. Seep Lakes the last saturday of April. The sooner we come to a decision, the better.

    I think we are starting from scratch if we want to change the locale. We need to put that to a vote: Dry Falls vs. other locales

    Well it has always been at Dry Falls. The week before opening day. At least is was the last four times.
    If you wait until opening day it is always crowded where ever you go.

    You can't please everyone so some will always be disappointed as to the time to go. Besides this is a good base of operations. Everything else is close by. Besides it is a good place to party at.

    It has to be Dry Falls 20-22nd. It's a four year tradition. The Seeps would be a great late spring trip we can plan after this event. Sun Lakes was chosen a few years back to accomadate as many people and their families as possible. Not having certain amenities within a reasonable distance would put a lot of people out.

    Alpine is right, the last weekend will be a zoo. Every camping spot will be taken 2 or three times over. Besides, the week before the rangers won't give a damn about the night time activities.

    So, is it 20-22nd? That would work well for me, if anybody really cares.... Can't wait to match wits with those raccoons.... Who woulda thunk that they can upzip the boat bags?

    So is it going to be the 20-22 then? I should be able to make it this year. Where do you stay at, the state park or sun lakes resort?
