Looking forward to another trip. Hopefully the wind isn't as bad this year.

That looks like a blast.  Now that I have a boat, maybe I'll make a trip down there.  Where do yall camp at?  Is this a yearly thing yall get together and do?
Right wing shooter, I aim for the left!!!

Nowhere in your incoherent rambling did you come close to what can be considered a rational thought. Everyone is now dumber having heard it. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.

Not sure if I will be there in June. I usually start fishing it as early as mid April, depending on water and weather. I love our trips to the Palouse. I started getting bait last weekend!

Have any of you guy's ever caught a blue cat or a flathead on the Snake River? I've fished Farewell Bend before and caught some nice fat blue's and an oriental guy was there with cages set on the water to keep his fish alive and he was catching BIG flathead cat's with a cool piebald color of a banana yellow and brown speckling. Who else has seen this?
