Interesting steam of consciousness post there and some nice fish. I thought of Hunter S Thomson too. :clown:

Good to see Lenore is still producing some fish. Lake has been a bit down the past few year.

Beautiful lakes there in E Washington

Now i have no issues with keeping and eating fish but cannot imagine eating a Lahontan Cut anytime from an Alkaline lake like Lenore, especially in Summer temps. Typically a C&R lake. I see people keep fish there and in Grimes. Must taste like spoiled cat food. IMO

Now Blue Lake fish are very good eating fish into July. I think Mom would really appreciate a limit from there.

Anyway thanks for sharing and a designated driver is always a good thing

Dreamon,
Sounds like one CF of a trip, but hey, you caught fish and some nice ones at that. By the way I have some friends that can match you guys both in the CF and drinking departments. Hope you guys never meet up in that area at the same time. Have fun.

Appreciate the report. Very glad that you and other drivers out there are still alive. Not sure that your trophy fish is still alive considering the left half of his gills likely no longer work.

Swimmer's itch is a beast! Never again!

Correction need to be maded...

We sat in big wallys deli area for couple hours to sober up, before we head out in the road, in no mean we were endangering anyone, we were just feeling a buzzzzz, 6 beer between 2 guys.. The beer went down a little faster than normal, because it was a hot day..
The fish on the pictures was the one fish we both kept the whole trip, the bigger fish was never taken out of the water....

What kind of signs should I look for? Should go see the doctor?
you will know in about 3 days after leaving the lake, swimmers itch can be avoided by toweling your self off after leaving the water, or so my doctor says. Now every time I hear a canadian loon call I start to itch!!!

My buddy told me last night he's feeling some itch, I did want to scare him, because we both did know... I told maybe it might be sunburn... I hope..

Untreated cases of swimmers itch can lead to testicular atrophy, which could be some serious shit if you care to keep the boys intact. Better spend some time doing some self examination. I've read that mega doses of cold bicillin bilaterally injected intra-muscularly into the gluteus maximus is the best method to counteract the damage. Check with your local health care provider and get their opinion, their kids need new braces and a fattening college fund.
