Howdy from Lake Cuyamaca!

 

Dusty Britches here along with Cuss Cussler and Silent Sally.

The wife and I went out to the Shout House on Friday in Old Town, San Diego, on 4th between G and Market on the east side. We don’t get out much, so we take advantage of it when we can. Dueling pianos that start up about 6:30 to 7:00, a loud and rowdy group full of energy and anticipation of the evening ahead. Looking around in the crowd I noticed that the group wasn’t all college prep, which it normally is, and that there was a large contingent of older folks in the audience kicking up their heels which made me feel right at home. I can’t help but share this, although I shouldn’t. Yes, I should! We had 5 in our group, two couples and Christine, a single mom who hasn’t been out much in a while either as you will soon discover. As the evening progressed Christine was being caught up in the moment, singing along with the songs played by the piano people without a care in

San Diego County Record! the world when something came over her. Because it was standing room only after a short period of time, our service was slowing down a bit and when Christine’s drink emptied, I noticed her connecting straws together until she had about 6 or 7 of them connected. Then she would lean over toward the table next to us to see if the extended straw would reach the glass of wine sitting on the table next to a woman. A couple more straws completed the distance and she was drinking out of the stemmed glass of merlot. The woman to whom the glass belonged didn’t even notice until her glass was down to about a quarter and the straw was still sucking wine out. The woman’s eyes started at her glass, then followed the extend-a-straw back to the culprit sitting at our table. We all had a good laugh, bought our neighbor a new glass of wine, noticed that she moved her new glass to the other side of her, and we made sure that Christine’s glass never emptied the rest of the evening. True story!

Mt. Lassen planted on Tuesday. 1,200 pounds of nice fish. Jay Blaylock arranged to have a group of elementary kids come up to witness the plant and things went well. Half the load was 1-1/2 to 2 pounders and the rest were 2 to 5 pounds. Word is out about the plant because we have a grouping of 6 to 10 vehicles parked over at Lone Pine just about daily. At least until the weather set in. Now not so many.

I have been closing the gate lately, on an infrequent basis, due to a number of people who don’t respect the honor system. Daily, my rangers have observed vehicles getting there before sunrise and getting a couple of hours of fishing in, then leaving without checking in at the bait and tackle shop or getting a permit. I now have seen them parked up on the highway with stickers. I’m sorry that I am forced to do that, but the monies for permits collected pay for the fish stocked. I don’t feel that I should have to do this, but right now, I do.

Guess I gotta fillet him next!

Dave Miller of Escondido nailed an 8 pound 12 ounce rainbow at Pumphouse Cove using a green mini-jig bumping it across the bottom. He used split-shot to cast out. Yes, he limited.

Jody Palmer of Wildemere, CA plucked an 8 pound 4 ounce bow out of the pond using green power bait. It seems as though green is the color to use right now.

One other notable catch was on the troll when Nevin Dickenson popped a 5 pound trout in front of Lone Pine while trolling a 1/6 ounce Thomas buoyant (red and gold).

Our Bald Eagles have been quite an attraction lately. They have been diving into the pond, making the ducks and geese spread out like Moses and the red sea to pull a nice trout out of the water for a tid-bit of a snack!
