  1. Heading down on Tuesday for four days...looks like the weather is improving.
  2. Sure must have scared a few people off...there was nobody except a family of five and me Wednesday and Thursday. So as an add-on, I bought my pass today through Albertarelm. I noticed on the way down to the N. Ram that there was nobody camping along the North Fork road either.. On my way home I took the long way down the trunk road and saw no more than half a dozen boondockers alongside the road, except at the N. Ram/Trunk Road crossing, which was packed as usual. Met only two guys on the river, and they were both from Rocky.
  3. Just curious as to whether "Nice & Easy" is private land or comes under the crown land designation . I believe if it's the latter you need to buy some sort of camping pass, if I'm not mistaken.. Anyone know?
  4. Thanks for putting this up on the board. I had to miss it last wednesday due to prior commitments.
  5. Already booked it off with the "boss" Dave
  6. One last shot Thursday and Friday. I'm hitting up the Stauffer and Prairie on Thursday then heading to the N. Ram on Friday. Does anybody know of any campsites open around Caroline or Rocky. My usual spots have all closed .

    N.Ram

    N. Ram is low and clear, fishing was slow, only 5 the first day and 2 on Tuesday, but there was nobody on the river except me and a black bear aout 100 yards east of the bridge over the N. Ram.

    Thanks for the info, Fred.Passed on the N. Ram. Gave the Stauffer, Raven and Prairie a shot, a few brookies on the Prairie and that was it. I'm planning for the N. Ram Tuesday/Wednesday.

    N.Ram

    Anybody planning a trip to nice & easy next week?
  11. Thanks for that. Hopefully the stable weather pattern will help improve things by Monday and all the weekenders will be back "working out of home".
  12. Hoping to head out to the N. Ram on Tuesday or Wednesday, but would like to take a shot at the Prairie near Strachan as well as Stauffer and the Raven. Anybody know how conditions are? Dave
  13. FYI folks, The North Fork Road has re-opened for anyone who wants to take a side trip to the N. Ram Dave
  14. Did anyone get out to the N.Ram this week? Looking for conditions. Hoping to get out Monday and Tuesday of next week.
  15. Count me in. Had a great time on my first one last year. Met some great people and learned a few things too. Jim, I'll try to remember to bring scotch instead of beer this time.LOL Dave
  16. and now no vehicles in Parks, provincial parks or recreational areas...confused as well aout the no parking on the side of roads or private property. Does this mean for instance, parking by the bridge on SR761 and walking on to the Stauffer is not allowed. What if I have permission to park on private property. I certainly don't disagree with the reasoning behind keeping parks etc closed to vehicle traffic, but i have never had to worry about keeping a social distance from someone on a stream or river. https://albertaparks.ca/albertaparksca/news-events/alberta-environment-and-parks-response-to-covid-19/
  17. Thanks Michael, now I've got a couple things to keep me busy for a couple months. Dave
  18. Great two days on the North Ram. Had the whole stretch from nice n' easy to the bridge all to myself. Caught a decent number of cutties and broke off a good number of flies on the ones I lost. Oh well. Lots of risers to size 16-18 adams' as per usual this time of year, and yes Jim, i did get one on the "hippie stomper" as well.
  19. Anybody planning on spending a couple days around the North Ram this week? I'm headed there on Wednesday if you're looking for company.
  20. What a great few days on the North Ram with a group of terrific fellas. Jim, wally Terry, Michael, Jimmy, Irwin and the rest of you, I had a great time and really appreciate you showing me the conclave ropes, even though i passed on all that scotch. The weather could've been better but the fishing was perfect...except for my last cast on the last day when a 20+ cuttie snapped my St. Croix Legend. If i can find the video on my laptop I'll post here. it was pretty funny, but i managed to handline it in anyway. Thanks again. Wish I could join you on The freeman this weekend, but the wife has other plans.
  21. Jim, just an update on the North Fork Road. I travelled it last Week and it was in fine shape (relatively speaking). It had just been graded and I didn't see any sign of construction work going on.Heading down on Tuesday and staying at Strachan campground for the night and then up to Nice & Easy. Dave
  22. Thanks Michael. I am looking forward to it if I can convince Fern to go.
  23. Not familiar with "Nice & Easy". Is it a private campground, or is it that horseback staging area on the NFR? I usual boondock further west.
