Fall trout fishing

Magic time on the water this week (Nov 13-14). It was beautiful out there at Davis Lake, CA with a lot of silence, closed campgrounds and closed boat ramps. One ramp was open so I could launch a power boat. An 18 in and 19 in rainbow in spawning colors. Ice in the morning, wind in the afternoon, lots of weeds and great fishing. Low angle sun made for beautiful landscapes. The quiet was eeriy.

The night was cold and dark. Coyotes sounded like wolves. The few people around had lots of experience and were very polite. It made me forget about the summer. Get out there if you can.
