    When the Pool is just too darn hot we venture....

    To the creek!



    Water is a little turbid, been raining a lot here. Usually by July the water is maybe 6 inches lower, crystal clear, and warm. The entire creek bottom is a sand/gravel mix. It also runs through traditionally agricultural land (not used in many years) and is free of typical trash. I.E. no broken bottles, no tires, no old beer cans etc. We catch small bluegill, sunfish, and tiny bass all on dry flies. Catch crawdads and mussels. We see the occasional turtle, snake, wild turkey, deer, owl, various birds and ........once i saw what HAD to be a mountain lion (or some type of HUGE cat). We hear coyote's nightly but i've never seen one of them.

    This is what the creeks and rivers around here look like. Normally they don't have this much water in them.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
