    Default Birthday Outing on 'No-Tellum' Spring Creek

    My youngest son and I celebrated my 57th yesterday with a trip to our favorite spring creek. The day was overcast and a PMD hatch was just winding down when we arrived. We caught plenty of fish with two 20-inchers for myself (one brown and one cutthroat) and one 20-inch brown for my son, with a fair amount of smaller fish thrown in for good measure. In all a great day on the water.

    Here are the pics:
















    Since having a hip replaced and an ankle fused in the last few years, I have had a difficult time wading in the sticky mud of the spring creek. My family took a page out of Nevada's Pyramid Lake and got me a ladder stand for Father's Day last week - it worked like a dream and this was it's maiden voyage:


    A visitor while we fished:




    It was a great day on the water and an even better way to spend a birthday!

    Way to get back to your favorite spot, Kelly - wish Bob and I had had one of those ladders. Nice birthday trip!

    I've learned a lot since you two joined me on the spring, especially where to wade and not get into the sticky mud, but, alas, what's done is done. It was still fun to have you two join me at my favorite fishing hole. I hope all is well!
