the tough go fishing...

Been a while since I posted, because I have been toughing it out by going up the Gorge fishing.




I went for a few days last week and we caught a bunch of bass.  Put in at Arlington as that was the only ramp open.



 We kept some of the bass, my BIL cleaned them, and SIL cooked some for us, yummy!  The rest I brought back for my cousin, as she keeps Willie for me.

Water was smooth as glass, and the temp was perfect.





We glassed the bluffs for rams between fish. Didn't spot any. 



Wild flowers on the drive home. 



Weather was beautiful, got some sun, and had a good time.



Just got a text from my SIL to get my butt back up there to go springer fishing later this week. YeeHaw, can't wait.

  1. Enjoy! Getting out is WELL worth it if for nothing more than the sun and the water's calming influence...

  3. The Gorge always amazes me - rain forest to desert in just a few miles.

  4. Fishing is on the 'not allowed' list in the UK. Which seems daft as most of our fishing enthusiasts are anglers and social distancing is what they do best.

  5. So glad you could go, some places aren't allowing it.
