Blue Mesa



Under Dottie's careful watch, Tom Boesch
measures the winning catch.

This year's annual trip to Blue Mesa "turned out to be a lot of fun for all," reports trip organizer Ray Park.     "The weather was perfect with very little wind. The sun was on us most of the time and the fish were biting," with all anglers limiting out on trout.  

Winner of the pot for biggest fish (shown above):  Dottie Bechtel, with a 20 1/4" lake trout, but Ray says Barbra Ding, Dennis Kelsey, Mike Schember and Dave Boyle all came within half an inch of the prize (sadly, the story of some of their fishing careers). "A great trip with a great group," Ray says, "and looking forward to next year when it comes time to head for the Big Blue again."

The team practiced catch and release - right into the grease.
