Granby 6-9

I feel like ice off and July are big fish months at Granby. This year I can't spend all week at Granby so I'm trying to go up every weekend. Going on the weekend makes it much hard to get a camping spot at Stillwater.. basically impossible. This weekend I tried just finding a spot on the waters edge and camping. This works fine when only fishing for two days as I don't need to charge the trolling motor batteries. I threw all my stuff in the boat and found a nice spot in Grand Bay to camp. I basically just set up my camp stove on the shore and slept in the boat. Sleeping in the boat was awesome. I slept really well. The only downside is waking up at 5 am to go fishing and first thing having to deal with all the bedding and the bimini sides in the boat. Still beats sleeping in a tent on the ground imho.

Saturday was so windy that I only fished from about 7 am to 9 and only caught 3 fish. Then I setup camp and took a nap on the boat till about 1. Fished from the bank for a while and caught my first brown trout from Granby using a husky jerk :). Sunday was better, way less wind and the fish were biting. Nothing huge though :\

Granby 8-15

Pretty good trip. Truck camped at Elk Creek Campground. That kind of sucked.. Fishing was good though :)
