Here is a link to the new Chapman Park Web Cam. This should be helpful.  :thumbup_smilie:

There will be a link from the OLA webpage soon as well.

reeleyz , thanks for that app. It will be very helpful when planning a trip & watching the weather. speaking of weather , is any one else thinking of hard water?  I'm not one to rush away the summer, but I've had my fill of this heat.  I'd like to trade in my lawn mower & garden hose for an ice auger & a box of my favorite Jigs.

I'm with you 62. Been thinking about hard water ever since it softened up this spring! I HATE hot weather
The hardest part of ice fishing is casting!

Early to bed, early to rise
fish all day and make up lies!

Ha!  Wife and I been on the road in a motorhome since May 21st.  Home the first week in August, maybe.  Been an awesome trip, so far.  Over 6500 miles at this point.  We are meandering eastward.
Have done just a little fishing; Cats in Kansas now, Cutthroat trout in Rockie Mtn. NP (in the mighty Colorado River, about 10 miles downstream from the headwaters; a pretty small creek at that point.)
I'll be on the Eyes in the River when I get back; have had some guys with good reports.

Lots of PICs, no fish.  It's been a trip for sightseeing and visiting national and local stuff.  I can send you a link to the PICs, if you want the boredom.

hey guys how many of you are thinking of a little maintenance on your equipment?  I started my auger last week and let it run for about 10 minutes  It's good to keep a little gas moving especialy in this hot weather  also put a fresh charge in the fish finder after letting it run all day. good to keep that battery active.  Took an inventory on my panfish jigs and have a list ready for when the stores stock up     Can't wait for hard water it won't be here soon enough for me

Shuffled some of my stuff around in the garage the other day.  Batteries charged, ATV started,  Not sure if I will even switch the tracks off this year.  Have not had time to "play" with it this summer.

Don't forget to replace those dull auger blades that you grumbled about last winter. Being ready ahead of time means a lot more fun when it counts

You guys keep after them, show no mercy to those eyeballs. They deserve a spot right next to the vegetables and rice on your dinner plate. I'm happy to sweep the scraps off the bottom of the lake once ice arrives.  :icefish:

I'm after those ducks tomorrow Larry, it's the first day here as well. Unfortunately it's going to be a downpour, and the young bucks want to go out this afternoon and spend the night in order to get a good spot. I haven't decided whether to camp out or not, maybe it's time for the youngsters to figure it out on their own. Then the old farts arrive 5 minutes before legal shooting.  ;D
