    I am heading up to Payson to get that Turkey that I have a Tag for.
    Hope I can make it to Chevelon Lake. So thats it, I will try hunting with the Fire and all I also hear a lot of storms are up there. This will be fun.

    No Go On Turkey, Limit On Trout.

    I didn't Tag a Turkey. Hunted Saturday near Forest Lakes . Saw some hunters, but none of them Tagged any that I could see. Had some showers the whole weekend. It did help the Fire though. All roads were closed leading into my hunting spot. I thought I may be able to get near my spot fom the north side. Headed up to Chevelon Canyon Lake. Went up to Chevelon Crossing. I never been there before and took some photos. Made up to the Lake with thunder and lighting as I pulled up to the Lake. Did make the 1/2 mile HIKE down lake. I had the whole lake to myself. I couldn't believe it. Two float flyfishermen were leaving and one had a nice looking 17 inch Brown Trout. I got my limit in about 1 hour. All nice size Trout with my smallest 14 inches and the biggest being 17 inch which was my dinner for the night. I released the rest that was on my stringer. I haven't fished like that for many years. Every cast I'm pulling in a fighting trout and no people around. Headed out of there to fine my number two Turkey spot. Sunday morning wasn't any better and packed it up about 10:00 AM to head back home . Here's a few Pictures.

    Smoke all over. Just outside of Payson.
