Jackson Meadows #5 – September 2015

Jackson Meadows Reservoir

Autumn started this week and I brought it in at Jackson Meadows Reservoir, trip number five this year.  Kate joined me for two nites and a day, and also our friends Mike and Vicki and their tiny, cute pups, Wookie and Ginger.  No swimming but kayaking, fishing, short hikes, Qwerkle games, cocktails and much laughter.  Weather was perfect.  Fishing was pretty darn good.  I got 10 trout, let most go, including the 15inchers but kept three for a nice dinner.  And… I lost the monster trout.  So big he pulled the hook right off the line.  Gargantuan!  The East Meadows campground closes in a couple weeks so I will have to start going to the Pass Creek CG since they leave that open all year.   Anyway, here are some pics.

  1. Some of the best pictures of water that I’ve seen you do, including the water bottles. Very cute of Ginger and Wookie.

  2. Nice grouping. I love the pelican. He let me get within 10 feet of him the last morning. His wings were all fluffed up and tucked, sure wish I could have gotten a picture then. We just kept looking at each other, I would talk he would fluff. I think we had a bonding moment. :o)

  3. Wonderful pictures as always Bro. The camping trip, especially the fishing, sounds like it was really fantastic. Those big fish must have been exciting, too bad that one big boy got away. Oh well, maybe you will will get him for keeps next trip. Thanks for always publishing your camping & fishing trip stories.

  4. Great photos as usual, Geoff. The pictures of the pelican and the heron are new in your picture taking.
    They were beautiful to see.
    I loved seeking Kate relaxing. The morning sun scene is wonderful. You are becoming quite the fisherman.
    Love, Mom
