Henry's Trip 2009

Time once again for the 2009 Henry's Lake week of fishing. Got our little but cozy trailer rigged up with a receiver to pull the boat trailer. Pulled very nice and 13 miles per gallon all up hill.



We arrived at the Red Rock R.V. Campground around noon Saturday the 19th of Sept. Wind was blowing and we were told a cold front would be moving through for the next couple of days. Wind put white caps on the water and stirred the shallow bottom ........



........ so we hung around camp for most the day.

We went and hit the rivers for the next couple of days due to the wind.








Sunday and Monday morning we were able to get an hour or two before the wind picked up again.






They were hitting on Hot Chocolate, Lynn Scott Softhackle Halloween, and the Henry's Lake Renegade by B.S. Flies. Also the Denny Rickards Seal Bugger.


Poky-Mon had to leave us Tuesday morning so we fished the morning and then headed to Yellowstone for a little shopping.

Wednesday morning we hit the lake at it looked like this:



Beautiful, but ....WE NEED A RIPPLE!


Fishing was fair ......


Sunsets were fantastic ........





The next three days were pretty much the same, but we were able to fish longer and not as beat up without the wind.


Baxter got into it as well ........



Some big fish ......







Ran into some friends on Saturday; Ed, Mike, Lynn Scott and Shelly ......



And Shelly made the day with this beauty:


Went back to camp and got a good night sleep. Got up Sunday morning, tore down camp and headed home. Week was definitely tooooooo short.
All fish were handle quickly and carefully for another day.



Every year we stay at Red Rock RV Campground.



Full hookups, laundry room, showers. Wi-Fi, great people- many thanks to Gordon and the gang. http://www.redrockrvpark.com/index2.html

Sorry I did not make it up there to see you. Too much school, Homecoming Week at school and a wedding on Saturday. Great pictures of the fish and sunset. Potato harvest is next week. I will exercise the fish at Henrys.
