This is just a quick update on what is going on in our warm water community:

Dave Haight, ODFW, and I ran (drove) over to Davis Lake in May to retrieve some of those “toad” Largemouth. We managed to gather up 365 good sized bass and transport them back to Lost Creek. I have heard reports of goodly numbers of bucketmouths being caught already, so it seems to be working. I must give a huge THANK YOU to Terry Shrader and Gary Galovich, as well as their seasonal workers, Erin and Carly, for all of their help and expertise in this annual effort.

Incidentally, as of the end of 2010, by my count, (admittedly faulty) we will have transferred over 10,000 Largemouth bass into Lost Creek.

Second, the Hyatt transfer is coming up on June 19th, at Hyatt Lake. We wholeheartedly encourage you to participate. The past few years has turned out to be a great time. We hope to transfer 2000 fish to Lost Creek and Applegate Reservoirs. The first (10:00 AM) will be moved to Lost Creek, and the 2nd (3:00 PM)will transfer to Applegate. The July 11th transfer will be planned the same way. This change in planning will be easier, rather than trying to get to Applegate twice on the same day. Debbie and I will be available to hand out ODFW volunteer forms for you to sign, and to check you in, around 6:30-7:00 AM. Please check in with us. As is our custom, OBBAC will pay for your launch/parking fees. We will be at the main resort parking lot. Please join us for a fun day of catching, not just fishing.

Until the 19th, tight lines.
