Well, Mom Nature is up to her tricks again - the same ones she was playing in the spring. Couple of warm days, then w-i-n-d-y days, then back to warm then cold with a chance of snow (which it did in Mammoth a week ago Thursday), then a few awesome days - you get the drift. We were back to cool temps this weekend. Some pretty stiff breezes bringing in the cooler air.

The fishing was a bit better this week; helped out by a stocking from the Department of Fish and Game on Wednesday. The best place was once again back at the inlet using just a NightCrawlers or Salmon Eggs without a weight or what is sometime called - free-lining. Trolling lead-core between 6-8 colors with flasher and a NightCrawler or red and white lures was working (but how in the world are you going to feel the fish hit?). Drifting in the channel between the two natural lakes (come in and ask where that might be if you don't know) with NightCrawlers or PowerBait. Those sittin' on-shore might try PowerBait, NightCrawlers, or Salmon Eggs. Top-water lure fishing is slow. A delivery of Alpers is in the works for next week.

Just took a look at www.weather.gov for the Aspendell forecast - looks like some gorgeous weather in store for the canyon area - upper 60s to low 70s & mid 40s for the evenings - light breezes - now we'll wait and see how close they are! There are a couple of Aspen grove areas that seem to be lightening up, not surprising what with the cooler temps we've been having. We have seen a few yellow spots amongst the quakers. The lake continues to drop about 2 inches a day. Less and less skeeters to contend with in the canyon and back-country.

* * * NEWS FLASH * * * Verizon has removed the payphone out in front of Lake Sabrina Boat Landing. Cardinal Village will be your closest option as not very many cell phone providers work in the area; Bishop Creek Lodge, Parchers Resort and Creekside RV Park are your other choices

With the return of warmer weather the skeeters have returned, so remember the bug juice and COMMIT TO MEMORY, IF YOU PUT ON BUG JUICE, SUN SCREEN OR FOO FOO JUICE, WASH YOUR HANDS! THEN RUB THEM IN WORM GOO, TROUT ATTRACTANT OR POWERBAIT - GET THE OTHER SCENT OFF!

Also, don't forget your sunscreen and dark glasses, the glare on the water is soooo bright, they just might blind your eyeballs. PONCHOS or COATS MAY ALSO BE NEEDED - YOU NEVER KNOW!

ALWAYS PACK A JACKET! ! ! !

You all have a great week and if the stress gets too great, you all know where to come to get some relief! But, remember you don't need to be stressed to come. WE JUST WANT TO SEE YOU SOON!
