Bad Info.....
















We had talked to a local the other day, who apparently was born, raised and lived all his life here. a person like that who also worked years for the BLM, you would think would know excatly what he is talking about. well he told us that beescove creek was bout 3 miles upstream from the little diversion dam. we parked at the trailhead a 1k+ above the dam so we figured no more then 3 miles. as it turned out it was over 6 miles to the creek, which above the creek is where we could legally start fishing. we hiked up in our waders and by the time we got there we were wore the hell out. the river was high from the mouth up but we were hoping that by the time we got there and cruised by all the lower feeder streams that the water was going to be smaller. no such luck! the water was still high and fast and at this point not worth the effort. it was 2:15 at this point so we decided to chalk this day up as a loss. at exactly 5:15 we were finally back at the jeep, blistered and beaten. it's not that 12 miles is so bad, but when you walk it in waders it's just not much of a good time. there are a lot of bicyclists that use this trail so before i make that jaunt again this summer, i will own a bike and will just pedal my way up. by the way this was tirko's dumbass idea. my idea was to go back to a lake and fish our way around it.

That would suck. That' probably why your waders leak so much, too much walking.

This sounded like an adventure I would send you on haha
