Jackson Meadows Camping #4

Right after Labor Day, I went up to Jackson Meadows by my lonesome (no pups) for four nights.  Very peaceful.  Fished, kayaked, read in my hammock, watched a couple of movies, and hiked around the lake.   The lake being down about 30 feet, made it easy to hike around and look for lost items.  In fact, I found a kayak paddle.  Curious as to how someone lost it and why they didn’t jump in to retrieve it.  At peak depth it was probably only about eight feet underwater.

The lake was loaded with fish but I only caught one.  I tried various lures, worms and changed up my rigging to finally get it to attract some fish.  Even with all the fish I saw in the water, the fish and game dept. was also stocking it with more trout.

Weather was delightful, not too warm in the days and nice cool nights.  Not much smoke at all.  And much of the time I had the campground to myself.
