Day 2 of 8
Sunday, July 04, 2021 I rose at 5:00 and fished from shore for an hour. No bites so I made coffee and enjoyed the peacefulness. There were few mosquitoes and it wasn't warm enough for the flies yet.

It was a long, hot day of slow fishing. Fished 10:30-12:30. Stayed out of the sun. Fished 4:30-6:30. My wife caught a small walleye on our way in. We shared it as an appetizer amongst the four os us and all appreciated the sample of fresh-from-the-lake walleye.

A large thunderstorm passed just to our south as we finished dinner. There were scattered thunderstorms well into the night. I think this was probably the storm complex that started the Delta fire.
