Back to Loon Lake right after the Labor Day crowds left. I started out at site #28, only to find there is a tit mouse burrow somewhere near the RV pad, so I had mice in my raisen bran cereal box in the middle of the night. Next morning, crack of dawn, I was packing up to move to site #17 (my goto site from now on). I had the whole loop to myself until Wednesday afternoon, and then only a couple campers came in. It was great. The sky had some haze from all the fires and it was on the hot side, low 80s in the days, but otherwise it was gorgeous. Kayak fishing was great catching five fish and only one released cause he was too small. One 13″ rainbow and three just shy of 16″. Real fighters too. It seemed to me, looking at my fishfinder, that there were much less fish this time than last. Lake was about 2-3 feet lower than when I was here in July, but appears to have stopped dropping. Water temperature had dropped to around 63 whereas in July it was almost 70.
Biggs and Ben were with me, and because of little Biggs we just took short hikes. Also did some kayaking with Ben swimming along while Biggs sat on the bow. I finished three books while there and had a really relaxing time.
