I saw some monster carp on the mile, but couldn't get them to take. And yes, it is much better to camp above the bridge, in the canyon while you are up on the mile. I was barely hit with any wind both nights I stayed up there. Well tight lines
SdDryFly: Thanks! It sucked when I found out you were that close and we didn't get together for some fishing. For some reason I thought you were headed up to Casper the Sunday before and would only have time to fish for a couple hours in Casper. We will definitely have to communicate better next time and make it a point to fish together.

They weren't all big, but they certainly were beautiful:

Cooking breakfast in the cabin, boy was that a sweet setup, fully stocked kitchen, all we had to provide was the food and between cooking all our own meals and splitting the cost of the cabin made for a pretty economical trip:

The big smile says it all after landing a nice rainbow with the help of Rod on the net:
