Heber Shutout

I had to make a whirlwind trip to SLC and packed a rod "just in case".

The weather had been nasty the previous week but while we were there it was sunny and relatively warm.

I was supposed to finish my meetings by 5pm but they ran over. Tracy was ready and we pulled out of the parking lot at 5:30 with just enough time to get overt the mountains to Snake Creek. With any luck I would have a few minutes of daylight when we arrived to see if the Maiden II was worth it's salt on Utah Trout.

I was able to make a few casts with the UL in the fading light. I had one big fish roll on the lure and one smaller one follow it up but no takers. It was still worth the 45 minute drive up and back and thanks to my photographer I have some nice pictures to share.

Two hard and fast rules, "Laces out" and "Always start below the trestle".

Man That makes the east fork look like the muddy ditch it is....although it's close and holds fish!
Nice shots Tracy!
