Applegate Lake and bigfoot trap 3-7-10
Sunday was a beautiful day here in Southern Oregon, no football so i had to go fishing!! I Went to my favorite lake and when i got there i noticed it was quite windy, so before i went fishing i took a few pictures and went on a short hike. I took Collings Mtn. Trail no. 943, most of you dont know this but this trail goes to a non functioning Bigfoot trap that was built in the 70’s. If you ever do fish applegate lake it is defiantly worth taking the short hike up there, its only about a half mile along a tiny stream, really beautiful area in the woods. After that i went down to the Hart Tish campground area, its closed right now so you have to park on the road and walk in, or take a trail down to the water which is what i did. Also if you decide to take a trail up to the road after the sun has gone down, i wouldn’t recommend it, walking trails while its dark is no fun. I did catch two nice rainbows on live worms, the first was a nice chunky 12 inches and the other was 13inches and very nice. Hope you enjoy the pictures i had a great day in the woods and on the water 🙂
In this one you can see where i was fishing from. On the right side where it points out into the lake.
Here’s what it looks like looking the opposite side of the trail sign.
Notice the foot on the sign 😀
Here’s the bigfoot trap
Next ones are of when i was down at the water at my new fishing spot.
