So without anyone showing interest or a leader for the drift we will try another date. This Sundays drift is Cancelled, if anyone was going your still welcome to continue. Don’t let our schedules stop your enjoyment. Get out there and fish. ok, tight lines, ttyltr. Rod Z.
Hello all, Hope your all having a great summer. We have some great news with one of our most famous members, yes Don L. is back in Nelson and onto his recovery. Its been a good year an a half or more when his accident took him away. Welcome back Don L., I know with a bit more time and you will be snorrrring in the tent at Whiteswan or White Lakes.
OK, back to business at hand, This weekend we are having our Slocan Drift/float. Sept. 7th. I need to know how many are going and who is going?? I might not be able to make it and need someone to head the group, ie like Al Kassian, or any others that have been on the drift before. We usually go from Vallican old bridge site to Slocan Park Bridge. A good 4 to 6 hour fishing drift. Please call me or email me back if going. If planning on going we meet at the Co-op at slocan park, @ 8:30 am and then do the vehicle shuttles or shuffling of equipment between the Slocan Park Bridge area and the Vallican old bridge site.
Other news, river has been fishing well all summer, Summit lake fished well on weekend. Mike B and Howard S. reported good fishing. A group has gone up to Nine Bay and will report back next week. All the East Kootenay rivers are fishing great, those Cutthroat just can’t resist a big dry I’m told. the Kettle and Granby did fish well and will be cooling down soon and should be back into the great fall fishing as usual.
Our first meeting of the year is coming up on Oct. 2/ 2014, is booked at the Sandman in Castlegar. if any changes we will inform all by email . Do come out and support. We need feedback on which lakes to go on our outings and anything you might want changed for the upcoming years events. Give me an email if you can before the meeting so we can add it to our agenda. OK, and last we all want to give Gary and Pat G.a big hello from all of us. Gary is back in Peru doing a three year work stint. OK , that’s all for now.
Tight lines and bent rods. RZ.
