Camping/Fishing With the Misses












Michelle was able to get a few days off of work so she made the drive up here thursday evening. sunday night michelle wanted to camp and fish so on the way to our campsite so stopped by another lake and hiked behind it to the falls just for the scenery. after that we headed for our campsite, which was nothing more then a trailhead. once there i backed the jeep up to the lone fire pit and got us a nice camp fire going. i laid down the back seat of the jeep, spread out a couple of sleeping bags and our makeshift tent was set up. i had brought up a couple of nice seasoned salmon fillets that i could've swore i put in the cooler, for dinner, but michelle found them still in a plastic bag and had been sitting in the heat all day. what a waste, into the fire they went. so dinner consisted of potato salad, cashews and beer. the next morning we made some sausage links and scrambled eggs. after breakfast we cleaned up the mess, geared up and starting hoofing it. the hike was very peaceful and enjoyable. being a monday other people were almost none existent. we fished the lake for a few hours, catching cutties on a black spring creek special and a couple of dries. the fishing was not as good as the weekend before but we each got into our share of fish. at 5 o'clock we ventured back and when we got back into town, capped the trip off with a really nice steak dinner. it was a really nice time with my wife.

Great post Mike. Wives make the best fishing partners. My best days on the river have been with mine.
