sr11WENS 8-20…. The wind blew all night, and it was still blowing in the morning. I had to sit and wait until about 10 and the wind started to slow down. Went ahead and got on the water and once I got going, the wind laid down and paddled for hours and miles. Very few people fishing in boats and along the bank. I have read that the Brownlee Reservoir is one of the best warm water fisheries in the country. Wouldn’t know that with the amount of people fishing. At the end of the day, the wind came up and I used the $6 umbrella from Family Dollar until a gust of wind took my hat and the umbrella did a Chinese U Turn. sr12Once they take the U Turn they are no good, they can’t be fixed. Once the wind died down I found a good spot to stop. Had to ask a couple of does if I could use their bed, they were laying down just where I intended to put my tent. No wind tonight, but took no chances and put a heavy rock in each corner of the tent and tied the top down. Had some Italian Sausage, cheese and crackers and a bottle of water for dinner. Looks like I will make the boat ramp tomorrow about 3:00, better I am out of food and water. Two bottles left.
