My brother has not been fishing in years, so we planned a trip for this weekend to Courtright lake.
At 8,000 feet, the scenery is worth the extra hour drive compared to some of the lower, closer lakes.
I got off work Friday an hour early, and we made it just in time to spend an hour on the lake before setting up camp in the dark.
Back before dawn the next morning, we trolled small lures and flashers till 9:30, and again at mid day and dusk. We hit it this morning for an hour, then packed up camp and headed down into the valley heat. All told we caught about 35 rainbows and one brown.






We were not the only one fishing this lake.

Looks like fun. Sure not much snow on those mountains for this time of year. California drought looks alive and well.

Another high country trout trip.
This time, I took my boss.
Not a word about work was spoken all day.

Had to keep this one, he was bleeding too bad, the rest were all catch and release.
