I was all packed up ready to spend a week in French Camp but found out from the host they are not open yet until the water is tested....I don't like Tuff campground at all so I unpacked my gear and will hopefully go next week.....I missed the opener this year first time in many many years...

I got skunked on the opener about 3-years ago on the Owens River...Fished two days on the river and never had one darn bite....Didn't feel too bad because 90% of the other folks were getting skunked also..

Woke up around 6am for work thursday, was off by 5pm, pack and waited for my buddy to be off. Left socal just after midnight and headed straight to convict lake camp. Was probably the third camp set up around 8am. Took a nap (28 hours later) around 10am until about 4pm. And then went glassing for some deer. Found some up in the mountains, put the stalk on them and got within about 100 yards. That was the most exciting thing this trip. .... I will do this every trip this year in preparation for pulling a tag in that zone this year or next hopefully with all the points I'm collecting from not getting drawn every year.

Friday night was incredibly cold. Everything was frozen and Seth has icicles in his beard.

Fished the opener until we couldn't see our poles any longer McGee/convict had 1 strike and that's about it..

Started early Sunday and fished until about 345p still nothing. I tried EVERYTHING.

I had a blast but still find myself a bit empty feeling after this trip.

I'm headed up next weekend for REDEMPTION.  :rotflmao:
