Weather conditions and river flows could not be any better for this time of year. The leaves on the trees along the river are just starting to turn color and to top it off the fishing is great.
Art and I were at the shop this morning and after awhile Art couldn’t stand it and asked if he could take the van and just go fishing some where. I have been waiting for his call and fishing report but that van does mysterious things to you. This van is a true trout bum’s delight. It has a comfortable bed, chest of drawers and all kinds of places to hand your rods and fly vests and such. It has comfortable captain chairs up front and a great stereo system on a auxillary battery. For the most part it has a mind of it’s own. When you get in it with all your gear packed it’s like a sense of freedom and has a gps with a direction for fish and fun. The last time Art took this thing he wound up in the far reaches of Alberta, Canada. Like he said, it was no fault of his own as this thing has a mind of it’s own.
The investigation has been completed on those two diversion dams that I had filed an official complaint on. The Mile High Conseration Committee has deemed that both those dams were placed in violation and the first one has already been removed and the second was being worked on. This action had to be done but has come at a high cost to me personally. I regret having lost some very good friends in the ranching community.
