There is a reservoir out in the middle of nowhere in Lake County Oregon. Spaulding Reservoir is 19 miles off the paved road and no houses are nearby. The state plants rainbows in there when there is enough water to insure the fish will survive the summer. I went to Spaulding last week scouting for an upcoming hunt. Of course I took the rod along to fish Spaulding's clear water and feisty bows. When I arrived I found that the gates to the reservoir had been left ajar and the cattle had a hayday messing up the water. What once was a fun place to visit is now just ugly.
However I still caught some trout on a wooly worm. I won't be going back this year. Hopefully things will be better next year.
