Oct 29th last trip to camp for the year

Sad to say that the year is finished for camping.
I pulled the camper up the hill from where it stays all Spring, Summer and Fall down by the Pine creek. The winter weather is too wet/Snowy to leave your camper down for fear of flooding. so yet another year is over.

This Summer was very dry and I did not go to the camp much at all after the middle of June, and when the rain finally fell it was way into Sept already. Back in July three inches of rain fell and the fishing was good for about 3 days and that was all., other than that it was dry.

When they said rain was coming in the last week of Sept I went out and found fish then a near flood! rain total was 2.61 for the 29th. And it rained again Mon and Tues nights this week so the water was up and the fishing was spotty, but got a few and one at 18 1/2 inches about three pounds., all Browns, all in the camp.  These fish are spawning now like the the Brook trout and the Rainbows, and ALL should be returned to the creek so they can get on with the spawn!

I am looking forward to next year and hope that it will be more like last year 09,  the wettest in many years. The wettest month believe it or not was August 5.90 inches fell.The fish were able to stay put and that made it the best year Ive had yet on the Pine creek!   I hope it happens again!
