Sadly, we had to postpone the WFC and PHW joint outing to Walker Jenkins Lake that had been scheduled for May 21st. This was due to recent rains that would have made our access road through private property impassable, and probably would have reduced water clarity. The good news is, however, that those who couldn't sign up for that date have another chance! Streamkeepers John, Derrick and George have rescheduled the outing for July 15th, which is a Saturday. The logistics remain the same. We will meet at the Robertson Road bridge public access parking lot at 8:00-8:15, sort out the carpooling arrangements and leave at 8:30 AM. The clubs will provide some non-alcoholic beverages, but participants should bring their lunch. People can leave whenever they wish, but most people stayed until mid-afternoon or so on our previous outing.
Just a reminder that WFC and Project healing Waters will be hosting an outing to Walker Jenkins Lake Sunday, the 21st of May. This body of water is 60 miles from Casper. We will meet at 0815 AM at the parking lot at the Robertson Road river access area. We will leave at 0830. Walker Jenkins Lake is an interesting area. Formerly, it was a uranium open-pit mine. As such, it is quite deep, but most fishing is done close to shore as the trout (rainbows and cutthroats) cruise continually along the shore looking for food. Often, one can spot them and cast to where they will be with both surface and subsurface flies. This year, everyone will be responsible for bringing their own lunch, but some non-alcoholic beverages will be provided. No trees are in this sagebrush-dominated part of Wyoming, therefore no shade, so bring sun protection. We usually have enough people driving that one can leave their vehicles at Robertson Road. If inclement weather should threaten, call 247-1463 for updates about the trip.
