Annual River Trip
« on: Aug 16, 2018, 12:10 PM »
The first week of the month we were slated for our annual river trip, however, the lightning dissuaded us from doing so, particularly considering we now have a few children who have joined the trip.  A little wet weather didn't stop us from going last weekend, though unfortunately we lost a few due to other plans.  When the tradition started I was the only individual fishing the float ~ it was more about cold beverages, rope swings, etc.  Now all but one boat is fishing the waters - and fishing it hard. Plenty of fallfish, hard-fighting river smallies and one sizeable largemouth were caught.  A great weekend of camaraderie, camping and fishing.

Good stuff and nice fish, Mike.  That gentleman in the red shirt has himself a tank of a largemouth.

That looks like a real fun time! There's nothing like a good float trip!   ;D
     One more with the one we're after and we'll have two.
The brook trout is the prom queen of the trout world, and a promiscuous prom queen at that!

that is a very fun trip, I used to do that canoe trip as a kid with family before I picked up fishing, good memories.

Thanks all - was a blast, always look forward to that one for many reasons.  Something to be said about those moments on the water, especially now that we're bringing a few kids into the experience.  They've forged some great memories (one friend's daughter landed her first fish ever, another's son landed a beast of a fallfish at campsite). 

Jim - yes, my neighbor Jan, who took Sherri's spot in my canoe the past two years between our pregnancy and subsequently Caden's arrival.  Easily an 8lb fish - I have a large Stevens net and it filled the bag.

TightLines - it is a good one.   As you could likely tell, we do the lower section.  A bit more tame than the more northern/westerly stretch.  This year it really became a fishing trip for the first time, with the other guys working the water hard and the bite didn't let anyone down.
