Jackson Meadows September 2018 #5

My last camp at Jackson Meadows for this year.  Nevada Irrigation District (NID) decided to close early, simply because they are lazy.  Ever since they took over management of the Jackson Meadows campgrounds there have been problems.  The people on site are nice enough but the board that makes these decisions is simply in it for the money.

Anyway, it was just me and the dogs for three days, the last week in September.  Weather was terrific, fishing was the best I have had all year with nice size 15″ fish hitting my worm as soon I tossed it in.  Caught five all together.  One monster ripped the hook right off the line when he suddenly dove straight down.

Lake was down enough to expose an old foundation of a cabin that the lake had covered over.  Pass Creek was pretty much dried up.  While fishing one morning I heard a whole pack of coyotes singing at the point where the boat-in camp is located.  Even saw one of them on the shoreline.  I tend to enjoy the lake when its down around 30-40′ since it leaves a lot more to explore.  Aspens were beginning their change to yellow.  Lots of color in the fall.
