The year of the heat wave. Boy, was it hot! Temperatures in the mid 90's. A storm blew through one afternoon, but didn't do anything to break the temps afterward. We sweltered, but perservered and caught plenty of fish. Jim Mendenhall hooked the big fish pot landing a 5.9 lb. Northern.

This year's attendees were Dallas Hayden, Jim Lee, Lee Koepping, Jim Mendenhall, Ron Sidener and Jeff Thomas.

We did do a fish fry one evening thanks to Dallas volunteering to do the cleaning. Consequently, there are actually some pics of fish on stringers this year.
