Arriving at about 3:30 PM, Linda and I set up the camper while Kobi inspected his new grounds. The sun was out and the day was a perfect temperature for camping. Tom and Sarah arrived about a half hour after we did and once we finished claiming our campsites we grabbed our chairs and poured some drinks. It was a lazy afternoon followed by a great dinner and a wonderful campfire.
The next morning Tom and I drove up past Grand Coulee to Omak Lake to fish for Lahontan cutthroat trout. Tom had fished this lake before and had some very good luck. As we drove down into the lake we spotted a friend of Tom's who had said he might meet us there.

There were huge fish everywhere! We started casting and continued to cast for the next six hours.
We got a few strikes but were stumped, these big guys just were not hitting on what we were presenting. We all fished hard but by the end of the day, Tom was the only one that caught and landed a fish. He caught it on a chironomid pattern that he borrowed from me. Who would have thunk that those huge fish would be after such a small pattern?
Back at the campground Linda and Sarah had a great day walking around, reading, and bonding with the muts. We arrived at about 6:45 PM, helped fix dinner and then spent the rest of the evening telling stories by the fire.
Qur drive home was uneventful, we made a decision to get out again soon. Looks like we might be heading North after we restock!
