The trees here are confused this year. In a stand of trees, all of the same species, there are some in full color, some already spent and some still completely green. I haven’t figured that out. THe larch are turning fast and I hope I can catch up with them for a few pictures in the next few days, even though a lot of rain is in the forecast.
It is still Dog Lake to me. I caught my first fish there when I was 6 years old. Of course it was a huge cat fish and my dad had to get clear back on shore to get it off the hook for me. Besides I got 6 perch that day too. It was a great recreational place. Different clubs had picnics there every year.It was close and very popular.
Clark Fork Idaho…
Your photos are glorious. I read a little bit about the lake, and found it really is a favorite with fishermen. Pike and perch are the draws, apparently. I looked at some of your winter photos up there, too. Quite a different scene it will be, in a few months!
Yes, it’s nearly that time of year again, when the lake will freeze for the winter and the ice fishermen will come out. There was snow today about a hundred miles to the south of us on the passes, so the time is coming. Last winter I wasn’t able to get outside, but now I’m looking forward to visiting there when the snow is deep. A couple of years ago I walked on snowshoes to the waterfall that is on the west side of the lake and enjoyed it very much. Hoping for deep snow again this year!
