Wednesday i wanted to get out and try to find some Morels by my self , and do a little fishing. Went up to Hyatt Lake to hunt for mushrooms, took me awhile to find the real ones, i found a couple false ones before i got some of the real deal. Found my first one right after i looked up and seen a pack of deer walking by in the distance, must of been good luck. After 2-3 hours of hunting and only coming up with 6 morels i decided it was time for some fishing, so i went down the road to Howard Prairie. I first went over by the dam, fished there for a little over an hour, with no bites, i was using powerbait on the bottom and spinners on my second rod. I had enough of the wind there so after packing out a bunch of cans and bottles i packed up and went over to the spot i usually fish by Grizzly Campground, by the cove. At the cove i got my skunk killed, caught a little bass on a spinner and not too long afterwards i took off for home. Was another awesome day in the woods and at the lake.
This is where i seen the pack of deer.
This is near the dam at Howard Prairie
Back by the cove
First and only fish of the day
I got a call Saturday from my buddy Sunny again and he wanted to hit the water. This time we went to Howard Prairie. We fished the same area i did a few weeks ago where i caught a nice rainbow and a small large mouth bass. This time all we caught were Large Mouth Bass, about 18 of them, all of them but one came on Panter Martin Spinners. Since i have the two rod permit i was also using night crawlers under a bobber, which brought in the biggest bass of the day and earned me 5 dollars in a friendly wager. We kept our limits of bass, which should help the populations of rainbow trout at the this wonderful lake. While fishing my friend talked to some other anglers who said they had been out hunting for Morels, so after putting a dent in the bass, we decided to head over to Hyatt Lake in search of mushrooms. I surprisingly found the first two, was my first time hunting for them, Sunny found two more and then it started to rain so we went home. Had another great day of fishing ! 😀
I took a picture of the first fish just incase it was the last
Im not a bass fisherman so this is big for me lol.
