    Hey CH,

    I was stunned to hear you have had 10 deaths. We have a high infection rate but your community has a BIG population so even a lower rate results in too many tragedies. Let's all hope BM...

    Nothing says the season is over like putting the winter cover on a winterized boat, which was yesterday's project for us.

    We still haven't seen a substantial school of kokanees at around the 80 ft depth level but it should happen soon if it is going to happen this year. I have doubts whether there are enough fish to...
