Last week I got the chance to do some fishing with forum member qacwac who lives in Jackson, WY. On the first day we decided to do a float on the New Fork river, but unfortunately we got on the river at 1 pm and it was a 10 mile float so basically it ended up being a sight seeing trip as I had to keep the boat moving to be able to hit the takeout by 6 pm. The boat ramps still had plenty of snow but we were using my pontoon boat so dragging the boat across the snow was no problem, but when we got to the takeout we had a big surprise. Neither of us had a cell phone, and the plan was to call my wife and have here come and pick us up. So I had qacwac walk over to the Boulder convenience store while I broke the boat down and got everything ready to load in the car. Oh, I almost forgot, we didn't get skunked as we landed a Whitefish. Gotta love those whities when the fishing gets tough.
The next day we did a wade trip on the Green river and qacwac's GF tagged along as she likes photography. We started out early, stopped at the Daniel Junction convenience store for breakfast burritos and sandwiches and met up with qacwac's GF to head down to the river. It was probably the best weather I have experienced this spring, I think the temp went to 50 degrees with very little wind, ideal fishing and the fish didn't disappoint.
Here are some photos from the day's fishing, with qacwac netting one of my Rainbows:

Lately, I have been getting alot of requests from first time posters asking where and how I'm fishing. Normally, I give that kind of information out freely to the members here on the forum, but not to first time posters, so pardon the photo editing to prevent those folks from figuring out where we are fishing.
