Matt and i FINALLY got the chance to go camping! We packed up our fishing gear and the Daisy mutt and were off.First we went here...
It was really pretty and i was told that Mill Creek was a great fly-fishing spot but it seemed as though the snow run-off made Mill Creek into a MILK Creek :0)
The water was all murky so we decided to move on to a place i heard of called Battle Creek. Im glad we went there becuase it turned out to be my new favorite fishing spot! We set up our campsite and headed for the river :0) And this is what we found..
It was SO pretty and the water was perfect! I believe i caught the first fish ;0)
The reason i look so lovely is because it started raining on us! BOOO! But at least the fish were still biting :0)
As we were hiking down the river we came accross this neat old abandoned cottage..
Cool HUH? We continued to fish until it started getting dark and we headed back to camp. It started raining pretty good so we couldnt have a fire that night..sad, i know, but we got to cook our chili dogs on our handy-dandy camping stove ;0)
Heres me bumming around camp before the real rain hit!
..thank goodness our tent was waterproof!!
The next morning we woke up and made a fire Cause it was freezing! After we ate our cereal and warmed up a bit we decided to fish a little more. I must say that Daisy dog is shaping up to be quite the mountain dog..she did great! I was pleasantly surprised how well she kept up with us on our strenuous hikes over rocks and cliffs and accross the river..good girl :0)
We caught some more whoppers and i had some MONSTERS on my line that got away..no joke! We will definately be going back soon when the weather is a little better and ill get some pictures of the monster trout that i speak of ;0) We saw the rain coming again so we made the trek back to camp and packed up. Over all i must say it was a fabulous fishing trip!
