Banks Lake, Here We Come!

Just about this time every year our fishing club, aptly named "The Fishin' Club" loads up our campers, packs our tents, hitches up our boats, and heads over to Eastern Washington to spend the weekend at Banks Lake.

Banks lake is a thirty mile long man made lake near Grand Coulee dam. The scenery is spectacular, with sheer rock cliffs rising hundreds of feet straight out of the lake in places. The fishing is excellent, with a large varies of species to fish for, including large and small mouth bass, walleye, rainbow trout, yellow perch, crappies, and several other species. We always have a great time!

Yesterday afternoon I hooked the boat trailer to the RV to verify the trailer lights, and although the trailer worked fine, I noticed one tail light was out on the RV. A little cleaning of the socket and bulb solved that problem, as the bulb itself was OK. When I checked the tire pressures, I found one of the brand new duals was totally flat. They had just put new tires on the rear a couple of days ago, so I ran it back to the tire store this morning to get it fixed. KeeWee is off at the grocery store picking up provisions for our outing as I write. We should have the RV back in an hour or so, and we can get everything loaded tonight and ready to go. We have a Fishin' Club meeting tonight, then home for a good night's sleep before an early morning departure followed by six or seven hours on the road.

LouG, Evil Al, Rainy, Chris and Tony are all heading over to Coeur D'Alene, Idaho, for a big two day speed steel match. Unfortunately it falls on the same weekend as our Fishin' Club trip, so I won't be able to make it to the shoot. Maybe next year.....

I won't be near a computer for the next several days, so blogging will be non-existent until Monday night at the soonest.

Hope you all have a good weekend, and don't forget to get out to the range and shoot some e-Postal match entries!

One of my sisters and her familoy live in Coulee Dam. I've spent several vacations there of a week or more and can vouch for how beautiful it is there.
(I once climbed and walked the entire Steamboat Rock!)

How many times have you seen the lazer show at the dam?

I envy y'all as I sit here in Tennessee.
