Spent a few days at Bull Trout Lake, Idaho.

Was great to get out of the heat of the Boise Valley. Bull Trout at 7000 feet was a welcome treat. Highs low 70's and lows in the low 50's.

I almost didn't go as the forecast was for heavy rain in the mtns.
But as usual the forecast was wrong!! Had a few showers, mostly at night or early morning.

Fishing was great, catching not so much!!! [emoticon]

Arriving at camp.

Very spacious camp spots

And spaced out very well as you can see.

No neighbors either direction.

I have been modifying my little canoe for rougher waters and built some outriggers that tested out well. Also a motor mount for trolling on waters where motors are actually allowed!! OOPS!!

I feel so blessed to live in this wonderful state!!!

Are you using rod holders to position the outriggers?

Drop-dead gorgeous spot, DJ. I can almost smell the spruce and pine. Thanks for bringing us along.

What kind of trout are in that lake?

Your pictures remind me a lot of Pearl Lake north of Steamboat.
