  1. Crane Creek... some of the other small spring fed creeks in MO.
  2. Jayhawkers and red legs are terms that came to prominence in Kansas Territory, during the Bleeding Kansas period of the 1850s; they were adopted by militant bands affiliated with the free-state cause during the American Civil War. These gangs were guerrillas who often clashed with pro-slavery groups from Missouri, known at the time in Kansas Territory as "Border Ruffians" or "Bushwhackers." After the Civil War, the word "Jayhawker" became synonymous with the people of Kansas, or anybody born in Kansas.[1] Today a modified version of the term, Jayhawk, is used as a nickname for a native-born Kansan,[2][3][4] but more typically for a student, fan, or alumnus of the University of Kansas. I think the Jayhawks of KU can rest easy... don't think they'll come after their name.

    With the move to get rid of statues of men who held racists beliefs, Supreme Justice Roger Brooke Taney is one of the busts. And you guessed it, our county is named after him.... and our lake is named after our county.
  4. Oh I'm not... I haven't worn a mask, yet. But I will start now. Not sure if I will wear one around the resort grounds since I believe there is little to no risk. None of our guests are wearing... some do when they get here then they ditch them. I'll wear when I go to Lowe's or Wal Mart. I'm not convinced they help much but it's not that big of a deal for me really. I'm finding more reasons to wear one than not. My problem is I can't remember to wash my hands!!
  5. OK - after seeing this post, I'll chime in. Same time frame, I had something in that Jan-Feb timeframe and my friends say I need to get checked for the covid 19 antibodies because they think I had it. But I've always thought it wasn't HERE yet back then so I've dismissed it. I developed a soar throat one morning. I always take zinc when I get any kind of cold symptom and it helps knock it out. This time it didn't. It actually blew up into flew blown inflamed within 24 hours and went right to my chest. Bypassed my sinuses like a normal cold. Then the cough started. A basketball buddy said he was at the tail end of it and said he had a bad cough for 2 weeks. I said to myself I hope it doesn't last that long. It lasted 30 days. The cough got so bad that my chest was sore. Never got short of breath but did have to stop playing ball for a while. A couple of our employees also came down with the cough but as far as I know their duration was much shorter and symptoms milder. But they are much younger (30ish). My wife never got it. I normally don't get sick - slight colds that run their course. I've never gotten a flu shot. Had the flu BAD when I was about 35 years old and have never had it since. So if what Ness says is true and someone tested positive after being sick that long ago, may be I should get tested. I do know this is real... and I don't wish it on anyone. But there's a big list of viruses, germs and diseases that I don't want and wish on no one either. But for me, I chose not to live in fear of it or any other sickness. Respect them I do, but not fear. Fear accomplishes nothing good.
  6. https://fishbaldwin.com/2020/06/18/june-18-2020/ Steve Fraley is a guide at NRC and owns a tackle shop just off the Pere Marquette River in central Michigan. Here is his last "fishing report" before arriving at camp a couple of weeks ago. If it wets your appetite, give them a call. The reports I'm getting is there's tons of sockeye, big rainbows and hardly any fishing traffic on the river this year.
  7. Red San Juan worms have been hot the last few days, above and below Fall Creek. Egg fly and scud combo drifted on a spinning rig in the trophy area. And we throw a lot of marabou jigs. Soft plastics don't work too well on trout. It's not that they won't... but I haven't had any luck with them. They're running a lot of water now so you're limited as far as fly fishing. But scuds and zebra midges are the way to go.
  8. Lucky she didn't fire the pistol.
  9. Nice report, Bill. We're over 70 registered catch and release 20-inch + trout this month. That's not counting the trophies kept or released NOT registered with us.

    Keep or release I guess. You worried about them coming out of warmer water? Their meat might be a little mushy.
  11. Sounds like a nice getaway...
  12. Lodging here would be tough but we can use the pavilion for gathering and the firepits at night.
  13. Didn't amount to much. Not worth discussing really.
