short report! i guess fishing can be so boring that the experience leaves nothing to write about :).


your report states you were out 7 days but you had a 55A Sag only permit...?

I planned on coming back to write some more. Yes was out 7 days with the entry 55A, is that a issue?

i understand the 55A permit means you must camp on Sag every night of your trip. the regular 55 permit is for travel off Sag... like to the area you traveled. in any case, you got to see some beautiful country.

Hi Steve, welcome to the board. Glad to hear about the smallies. I am taking a buddy next year who loves fishing for smallmouth and had not considered that area. This will help me plan.
