The Beauty of the Gardner River - Fishing (Part 1)

Sausage, onion, peppers and cheese frittata for breakfast.


We started our day with a hearty breakfast.  Doug said I was going to need it!  He was right.  We hiked into a place near Sheepeaters Canyon.  The steep climbs and rocky terrain were all worth it.  We caught quite a few beautiful fish - mostly brook trout but also a few rainbow trout.  The scenery there is beyond words and even beyond the pictures that we took.  Check out Part 2 of the day in the next blog entry where many of our scenery pictures will be - you won't want to skip it! ~ Michelle


We found this elk skull with rack and many other pieces of the elk (ribs, vertebrae, hip, jawbone)  on our way to our fishing spot.

Doug's first catch of the day, but not his last!  We caught about 50 trout today...

Here is something that you don't see everyday!  I caught two fish at once.  One was on my top fly, a Tweeter Caddis and the other was on a Bead Head Prince nymph.

A beautiful rainbow trout.  He was a leaper and fun to catch.

Check out this fishing hole!  Fishing in a waterfall?  Oh yeah, I caught a good 10 inch rainbow trout and another smaller one in the plunge pool at the base of this waterfall behind me.  It was hard to concentrate on fishing with such beauty right in front of me - and with rushing water all around.
