Wow! High of 66 degrees F. for the next few days. When you come from a place where the nightly low is a balmy 73 degrees you celebrate the reprieve form the weather. And it is so conducive to training. I have been able to make 30 mile bike rides along the Columbia River to Castlegar and then back to Trail.

Jul 20, 2008 - Raining Rainbow Trout

Trail, BC Canada Columbia River has fallen by about 3 feet since our arrival last month as the snow melt begins to diminish. With a bit shallower water the fish have come out big time. The limit in BC for rainbow is a count of 2 less than 50 cm and 1 more than 50 cm. Which was exactly what we caught last night. Daniel reeled all three in while I coached and hoped. As we wrap up this segment of our BC visit there is nothing better than a trout BBQ for tomorrow night!! suv MILANO MYST
