Black Widow

Recommended Posts

Got done with the five days with the brother this morning.  On the gravel bar, a bit above 142, this morning and packing up.  Shook out/off my bags before packing the tent and sleeping bags etc and a black widow fell out!  That's a new one.

We had set the tent maybe 15 foot or so from the tree/willow line.  I guess it wondered down from there?

The bags were all kept outside the tent like I always do.  Can only imagine if it hadn't dropped out and come home with us or possibly decided to wander about the car.  Might have been interesting.

On a related note we saw last night a wasp dragging a paralyzed spider to it's hole.  Didn't see the actual attack but the dragging was cool.

Weather was great.  Fishing was ok at best.   Lots and lots of casts for the fish we caught.  My brother & I both noted the fish we caught just didn't seem to have any girth on them.

Probably brought it from home.

At least it wasn't one of them copperheads that tend to roam that neck of the woods.

We fished it the first of July.  Falling river from a medium rise.  Fished from Cane Bluff to Whitten.  Then from Riverton down half way to Narrows.  Pretty tough.

Put and take trout are still jacked up from the floods at the hatchery.  They seem to still be stocking less and not as many.

Kindof skeptical of the theory I brought a spider from it's very extreme northern range if it even makes it up this far that somehow survived being packed and unpacked on four previous gravel bars just to show up on the fifth...

We floated Whitten to 142.  Got three or four in the 16-16.5 range but yeah, tough is a good word.
