Hello all,

The last Elk Trout trip of the year has been secured, and what a great time of year it is to hit this water before we get snow. The date: Sunday, 10/1/06. Click here to snag a spot and pay online.

Boulder Creek has been fishing the best it has in years. When the opportunity arises, let's support the worthwhile efforts to keep our homegrown fishery great. TU is sponsoring a cleanup next Saturday (see below).

Hope to see you,

Bill
