Priest Lake that is. We got here late yesterday afternoon, and headed out fishing in the evening. The second cast netted my about a 2 pound mackinaw (lake trout). That was all the 3 of us...myself, Dan and Arlen...brought in. This morning Arlen caught another mac, a little bit bigger, and all I got was a squawfish. Arlen also hooked into something a lot bigger, but the doggone fish went under a submerged limb and from there the fight was over...fish wins. Whatever it was fought a lot harder than a mac, so it would have been nice to see what it was.
The weather has been very hazy...smoky...due to fires burning to the north, over southern B.C. Today the winds aloft have shifted, and are coming up more from the south...which has pushed the smoke farther to the north again. That has left the sky clear and blue again. Most of the storms should stay to our west through tomorrow so we'll be doing more fishing...this afternoon for Kokanee (beer that is) and then back out for macs tonight.
