Every year my wife has a family reunion usually up on the Uinta mountains but this year they opted to have it at a spot closer to a couple of lakes I frequent in the spring. Never having been to them in the heat of the summer I thought that I would go and give them a try. My family headed up a couple of days earlier than me and camp was set up when I arrived I could get used to this!
This was the backdrop to our campsite we enjoyed the spot with deer and many a curious chipmunk who wanted to come and see what we where up to.
This first morning I went early inviting no one. This spot is one of those out of the way places it is know but I am not going to be the one to introduce anyone to it. I went solo and found only one other solo tuber on the lake that day. The fish were actively rising but I had zero success throwing dries or indicator fishing. Even the jig produced nothing for me when it usually works wonders in the spring and fall. My lone two fish came on a grey scud fished on sinking line. Talking to the other tuber on the lake he only ended up with one fish and was as confused as I was!
The following morning I took one of my relatives out to be what is one of my go to rainbow spots in the spring time. We get there only to find it choked with overgrown weeds and very little fishable water! Didn't get skunked though but not what I expect from this lake what a different place in the springtime.
Next week I hope to have a quality report with some alpine splendor and brook tout to share!

Recently I was asked with all your adventures you go on why do you not blog? Honestly never gave it some consideration until this weekend it would be a good record to keep those fishing trip memories alive. I love to read about others peoples trips of adventure, fish, and the outdoors maybe there are others as crazy as I am. So here we go I hope you enjoy the journey!
