What fishing trips are you planning next year?

So what significant trips are you planning next year? I've got two lined up already.

1. Grand Lake Stream, Maine May 31-June 3 - It's going to be me and two buddies that went two years ago, plus my father in law will be going for the first time. I can't wait, last time up there I got my first landlocked salmon (~19") and 3 river smallmouth in the 4 lb range on a 4 wt with 7X tippet.
I also landed an 18"+ chub that I thought was a brown when I spotted it due to the size. By far the largest I've ever gotten.

2. Housatonic River, CT October - After an awesome 2 day trip this past Oct where I landed my personal best trout (~21-22" brown), I've decided to make it an annual solo fall pilgrimage. I'll just sleep in the back of my car in a sleeping bag and fish for two entire days by myself. It really rested up my overworked brain cells and I caught a bunch of nice fish!

So what's on your calendars?
My passion for catching fish is eclipsed only by the fish's passion not to be caught.

I have nothing set in stone yet, but I will most likely do the following:

1. Pike trip in early spring to Lake Ontario
2. Cape in June with my dad (60th birthday present)

Those are the only trips that have taken shape so far. We need to remain flexible for an impending trip to China, so anything else will be opportunistic grabs at available times and dates to squeeze what fishing I can into the schedule.

Planned Trips

1. Miramichi - July 8 through 14 with my two sons (I hope) and friends. This is for sure.

2. Miramichi - Last weekend in September or first weekend in October with friend. This is for sure.

3. Muskegon River in MI - sometime between mow and May 10th. This depends on how my schedule meshes with my MI friend's schedule.

Maybe a couple of days on the Matapedia during first week of July -- a BIG maybe.

Another big maybe is the Catt in New York on the way to or back from the Miramichi in October.

Planned trips:

1. Sanibel at the end of April. From recent reports, I don't expect the fishing to be very good, but, we'll share a cabin with friends and have a good time nevertheless.

2. Kodiak in late September. The way the fishing on the Island has been going downhill, this may be my last trip up there. I love the Island, though, and really look forward to returning, fish or not.

3. Pick-up trips on the Alsea/Siletz for steelhead, starting next week.

4. Trout and Steelhead on the Deschutes.

5. Quarter-pounders on the Rogue in late October (I hope).

Cruise the end of January. I'll pack an 8 wgt just in case Basser and I can loose the missisus. The places we stop sound like early morning's, earlier than we would get into port, provide the best shot so I don't expect much. And the bow of those boats sit kinda high for flyrodding.

I'm thinking about Acklins but I'm not sure how that will shake out yet.

Cape in June with my dad (60th birthday present)
Mark, funny how fishing is an ageless pursuit. I think of you as a contemporary yet my agedometer turns the big 60 just a month later than your dad.
