Recommended Posts

It's time to start finalizing the coordination of the 22nd float. As near as I can tell, we have;

 

Quentin

Jim

Michael

Michael (Gary's son)

Gary

 

 

 

I assume, Michael, that you'd like to travel down with me, to bring your pontoon in my truck. If so, that pretty much fills my truck for boats.

 

Jim, what's your plan? Do you intend to travel on your own, or should we try to arrange for three boats on my truck? Maybe join Gary?

 

Gary, are you and Kristi heading down together?

 

 

As for timings, I like early. I'm wondering if 5 is too much to float all at once, and maybe we should stagger? We may end up with more joining us, as well. Any ideas? Do we want to get a bit more complicated for shuttling, and have us float different sections, but coordinate vehicles?

My son at this time is coming with me. Another Michael. As for Kristi she will need a pontoon boat unless my son doesnt go. Then she can ride out with me and use my extra pontoon. Will know more later in the week. But I also think that she might be working as well, not sure will confirm.

Sure enough it is. I was not paying attention. For some reason my brain remembered you posting you only had the Sunday's open.

 

That still works swimmingly for me. What section or sections do you have a mind to float..?

Currently sunrise is around 715 and sunset is around 1945 so a good 12 hrs to play with and some extra for miscalculation...;)

I'm still hoping to get to the river earlier than later. Are you two able to meet at my house early in the morning to pack the truck, or might you prefer to do it the night before?

 

Jim, did you change your mind about going down alone? Did you want to join Michael and I in the Tacoma?

Had I had my pontoon in time for this trip work would have taken second place! I have the rest of my life to catch a float with ya guys. No rush any ways cause, I'll be heading out to the Bow country to do some fishing for three days!!

Enjoy the trip I am slightly envious... TBH. But right now work comes first!! =)

If sunrise is 715, then first light should be around 630, or so. I'd like to be out the door NLT 4:30....but, I can be flexible if need be. Jim, if you're going to be "living in a van, down by the river" then perhaps you'd like to meet at Hwy 20 (where we took out last time), so we can leave a vehicle right there, instead of back-tracking.

 

Kristi, I'm envious of the Bow...

Q I can meet you at RR20, that way Jim can have his stuff ready to go. We might want to launch on the northside as i seen several large fish up by the islands on my last trip there a week ago. Should more more moving in everyday from now until spawn.

Either way...>TH, or at Hwy 20.

 

You still have my cell number? As Michael will be driving with me, he can talk on it all legal-like.

 

I'm looking forward to tomorrow. The Fishin Hole is getting rid of the Flights, so I picked up a new 4 wt today :) it is amazing what the Mrs. will let you buy moments after you took her shopping for a new dress and shoes :P

Was another great day -- except the scare, of course. I'll have to learn to scuba dive to go find any gear left behind! It was wonderful weather; too bad the mayflies didn't think so. Long day...I was having some trouble staying awake on the long drive home.

 

Oh, Gary, you didn't miss anything at Dickson Dam at dusk....nothing happening. Maybe the whitefish eggs are the most dominant food right now...
