  1. ...but cigars will affect your living rate...eat garlic...everything will stay away from you...
  2. ...glad you guys had a successful day...with the fish being caught in those size range, that's a good sign, is it not. A couple of age classes. Here's hoping that the catching will be great for the next outings...because the fishing is always good. Thanks for the report, water looks great and the weather was on your side.
  3. ...already making plans for the fly of choice and the possible the pot luck supper choice...
  4. ...well that's it for now, still lots of pictures to re-size...
  5. on the way back to the campsite, took a couple more pictures of the Pembina and Dismal, looking downstream...you can see the type of weather we encountered on that day...
  6. there was absolutely more to see on the sides of the roads and trails, here are a couple of pictures...
  7. either someone was bird hunting or this was the results of bear scare tactics...
  8. a couple of pictures of the Pembina and Dismal from the bridge...
  9. on the way out, we stopped at the lake to set the co-ordinates on the tom tom...had to take a couple of pictures of some nice looking fishy spots
  10. and now for some miscellaneous non fish pictures of the weekend...starting the day off with some fresh brewed coffee and a good hardy breakfast...
  11. The couple of fish that were caught on Rat Creek...
  12. Here is the Dismal Grayling...
  13. Ken...we found some fish and even managed to catch a couple...the fish were very picky on the fly type and Dan finally caught one using a copper john...go figure... We (Dan) only managed to land the one at the honey hole, although we had several hits and a couple of fish on, it looks very promising for the next outing. We don't know if the fishing was off due to the heavy rain storm that rolled through or not. We managed to get a scale and fin sample, a picture of the little fella and length (29cm or 11 1/2") Fish was caught at 3:10pm, water temperature was 12 degree Celsius (52 degrees Fahrenheit). Here I thought Dan had a GPS unit and Dan thought that I had a GPS unit, moral is we don't have one, but we knew where we were. We did venture further upstream, found some excellent looking waters (deep pools), lots of trees and debris in the water and lots of erosion. On the way home we stopped in at Rat Creek and managed to catch a couple of Grayling downstream of the bridge, one was 12 inches in length and the other was 8 inches in length...we had several fish on, but with not being wadered up, it made catching and releasing more difficult, so we called it a day and headed home at 2:30pm. We didn't have the thermometer with us to record the temperature on Rat Creek. The funny thing that Dan noticed was that on Dismal Creek we found that the Grayling were found in the deeper pools and on Rat Creek, we found that they were in the runs/riffles. A great weekend, too short, but still good.Pictures to follow shortly.

  21. ...Fairfax is okay with me...dismal can be looked at when everything is in our favor and the pit-taggers are available...I am still up for potluck on Saturday if everyone else is okay with it...
  22. ...yummy...yummy...looking good...can't wait til next weekend...food is looking great, but I predict the fishing to be even better... DO NOT FORGET YOUR SCOTCH TO HELP WASH DOWN THE DELICIOUS ENTREES...
  23. Dennis, if you bring 5-alive...you will have to book your campsite at the overflow which is on the far east side of the lake...
