I went camping Thursday and Friday nights and had a great time 😀 Thursday i drove up to Diamond lake as my plans were to camp there for a night or two and have some epic rainbow trout fishing, those plans changed when i arrived, it was blizzard like conditions. I had lunch in my car and the snow let up enough and i fished for a couple hours in the cold, after defrosting my hands i decided to goto a lake iv never been to that is only about 20 miles away from Diamond and about 2000 ft lower in elevation the lake was Toketee. I camped here for 2 nights and fished around the area and visted the sights, waterfalls and hot springs are such great things 😀
This is Diamond lake, the guys in pontoons were fly fishing and the boats were using power bait, the trout in this lake are HUGE
Another of Diamond
One more of Diamond Lake, in Douglas County Oregon.
This here is Toketee Lake
The Dam at Toketee
This was at the campground, my spot was only about 75 feet from the North Umpqua River, If u go downstream from the Lake here, there is about 38 miles of artifical fly water, too bad i dont know to fly fish yet.
The next two are of the back end of Toketee Lake where the river comes into it
The next set of pictures are of after i fished the lake for a little bit and went off to visit a nearby waterfall by the name of Watson Falls.
Walking up the trail to the falls it is rapids like this pretty much the entire way
Walking up the path i had no idea i was gonna come to such a spectacular falls.
Im posting the pictures in numerical order, also the date is still off on my camera 😀
I ended my Thursday fishing at a nearby lake called Lemolo 2 Forebay
I seen a few fish jump here but couldnt get any to bite
Ill finish this up in another post. Coming up more waterfalls, some hot springs and a natural bridge 😀
Thursday was one of the nicest days we’ve had in So. Or. it got up into the up 70’s and after hanging out with some friends and having a fruit smoothie i set off to wonderful Applegate lake. Since it was so nice out i wore shorts and flip flops, also i think since the weather was so good i was in kind of a hurry to leave that i forgot the camera, so no pictures this time but there are lots of them on here. I fished off the dam, which i did alot of my fishing from last spring and early summer, i actually fished off of some of the same rocks i stood on last year. Right when i got there i immediately started to throw the holographic panther martin with the paint coming off, after a while with no bites and seeing plenty of fish surface and jump, i changed up to a regular black and green panther martin but red paint on the blades, first cast fish on, was on the small side so back he went. I brought my favorite bait so i put a bobber on and some worms on my 2nd rod and continued to fish with various spinner and kastmasters, worms seemed to be the ticket though, i knew after awhile if my bobber hadn’t moved for bit that most likely the bait was gone. Had a great day of fishing, brought in about 7 trout keeping 2 of them, had about another 7 that were long distance released 2 of which felt like nice trout, oh and the bites on my worms were countless 😀 Oh ill leave u with 2 pictures of what i came home with 😀 Tight lines to all
Thats just the stuff i put in my pocket, all the bigger pieces of trash went into my backpack.
