Big Twin Report

We are over at our cabin on Big Twin, playing in the snow and skiing Loup Loup (excellent snow conditions!) Thought you guys might be interested in the aerator functioning on Big Twin.

Nice shot, Rick! Trade ya - the view out my "cabin" is of soggy grass and deferred yardwork :eek:
Tim-With 100 days of fishing you get in each year-obviously yard work needs to take a low priority! Nice thing about snow is it hides the yard work!

BTW Tim-I'm really learning a lot from your book-thanks! Rick

Rick, it looks like you have almost as much snow there as we do here at 2300'. So far for the month I have measured about 41'' on site. Two more inches today and it is still snowing. But hey-it's only 61 days to the opener!

Very nice, Rick. Clear a pad off for my "coffin", probably warmer than the last time I was there.... Jeff, I'll buy you the beer.

Look forward to seeing you in the spring or b-4?

Happy New year to both of you.
Rick: Beautiful! Looks like where our son and I were today up at Coldwater Lake. We got up to 3800 feet, but the lake is at 2400 feet if I remember right. We are still looking forward to you and your wife (couzin) stopping by for a visit on your way to Ed and Rita"s.

Looks nice Rick, but the big question is, did you fish???
Steve-I was tempted as I'm sure every fish in the lake is hanging out around those aerators! Leader Lake is open all winter and you can ice fish Paterson. Going by the Methow, I really wish it was open as it looks beautiful and I'm sure full of steelhead! Rick
The first time I fished that lake was about 2 years before the North Cascade Highway opened. You could get a room at the Motel in Winthrop for $8.00 a night, and rent a boat on Big Twin for $3.00 a day. Back then people bait fished it, but the guy that introduced me to it was an avid fly fisherman and made me one. Cary Specials were the fly of choice. We also used to pack rubber rafts into Moccison for big bows and tons of brookies. Ah yes, "the good old days". It's still a beautiful spot Rick.
