Steelhead Steve, Carl Weer and I braved the crowds and the jetboat hatch on our marathon float from High Bridge down to Lewis St. We each had a fish on but I was the only one lucky enough to bring one to hand. C & Red a bright 29" native hen.

Seemed everyone we talked to had at least one fish to the boat with a high number of wild fish caught and released.

How about you? Did you hit the North Fork?

I had to work Friday so I didnt make it out. I was dying to fish the Stilly tomorrow but it looks like its going to be out so I will probally head up to the Upper Sky.

I am running a trip to the lake on Monday which is near Smokey Pt. in the morning so you know where I will be in the afternoon. :) :)

We've got to make plans for the Stilly, it looks like it could be fishing much earlier then usual!! We'll get some fish. :)

BTW-High Bridge to Lewis St?!?!??!?!...thats more then a marathon!!!

Ryan, any relation to a Chuck Petzold? He would be in his late 50's early 60's. Was in Sea Scouts with Chuck when I was 14, he would have been 17 going on 18 at that point. (About 1956'ish).
