Goodbye, Blue Monday

Goodbye, Blue Monday!
Goodbye, Blue Monday!

Another weekend gone, but at least some fishing got done. Areas explored included the Wasatch-Cache National Forest around Mount Marsall. A stretch of Bear River north of the pass near Mirror Lake was too interesting not to fish a while, but all I was able to hook were two rainbows too small to keep.

Down side: Not sure if it was because of Father’s Day weekend, one of the first really nice weekends of the year, or because this area isn’t a bad drive from Salt Lake City and it was very hot down in the cities, but every trailhead was packed. It’s nice to get into the mountains for some solitude, but except for that fortuitous stretch of Bear River, there was none to be had.

A pretty day nonetheless. Photos follow.
