PHOTOS FROM MY TRIPS
« on: April 05, 2012, 04:05:24 PM »
Hello, everyone.
I have been busy and lazy to post reports on some of my fishing trips.

Since the new season is just around the corner, I thought I better post at least some of the photos from
last season. Please enjoy.



This is me in a one man boat at Shadow Lake.  I took my family and another family last summer to the Sierras
and hiked to this lake.  The last 1/2 mile is all uphill but the view is worth it.



Here are 4 consecutive photos from Pyramid Lake.  I think it was in November.











OK, next ones are from my favorite CSI lake.  These photos are perhaps from late October.














And these last ones are from my Salmon fishing trips.  Some of them were taken at
the Trinity River and some from Humtulips River and Cowlitz River.  The last two photos are
Steelheads.















Let me add just one last photo. It is from Kirman Lake.  All the fish you see are anywhere from 10" to 16", not minnows.




I hope you enjoyed these photos and stimulated some of your fishing bugs.
I will be heading up to the Sierras for the opener.



Chris W.

Did you take the one-man boat to CSI, Chris?  Nice Brookie on your lure.  Kirman is a must for this summer for me.  Thanks for the pics and, yes, now I'm itching to go!

Welcome back! 
Let me wake laughing from a nap in the afternoon under the aspens in the fall.

Very nice report and pictures Chris!  That brookie at CSI lake was something!  The Steelheads are good sized too.  Thanks for the report!

Those Steelhead are SWEEET!
I was at Kirman one time when the Brookies were stacked up spawning in the shallows. We didn't even launch our tubes the last day, we just fished from the shore.

Thank you for all your comments.
I will try to post more often this year.

And Saudust,
Yes, I have taken that one man boat to CSI.
That is such a durable boat yet it weighs only 3 lb.
So far I've taken that to CSI, Walker, Shadow and Davis.

Great to see you back Chris. Thanks for super pix. I think Shadow Lake is one of the most scenic.

BTW Chris, I have been eyeing that boat for awhile. Hmmm, seems they are now out of stock.

Chris!!! You make all of us so jealous.  Love the pics of CSI.... I wished that we had the same luck there as you do.  Thanks for posting.

I have seen this site before but wondered if the raft/boats are over priced cheap rubber or if they are in fact high quality and possibly worth the price.  So do some people on this site have one of these boats?  Do you like it?  I sometimes carry my float tube into the back country.  The weight adds up quick.  Float tube, waders, wader boots, fins, large (real large) backpack to carry it all, pump (I use mattress pump because it is fast), and then the various fishing gear, snacks, water filter (or water), 10 essentials, etc.

It would be great to eliminate much of the float tube weight with one of these light weight rafts.

So I am looking for some feedback on these rafts.

Heuschele,

The boat I use is Alpaca.
Hope the following site would be helpful.
