shiverfix . . . .Sunday was a bit calmer wind,but the size of the trout was a bit smaller.We did keep two fat ones for the table. The low point of the day was when some guys in a canoe managed to turn it over in front of the dam.One second they were there,the next second they were in the water.A guy who was close to them helped them out and I called the ranger(speed dial) who came out on the dam in the parks truck,then the rangers boat came out and finally the whole "First responders" group showed up.Fire engines,ambulances,Auroras police . . . .turns out they tried to launch with only throw cushion for PFDs,the ANS guy made them take rental PDFs . . .guess the rangers boat picked up the PDFs when they picked up everything that floated away from the canoe.My net man has some pictures . . .maybe he will post them.

There is reason to my madness . . . .Aurora is on speed dial for just this kind of thing.C.C. is on speed dial for quite a different reason . . . . .ain't a day goes by at C.C. that some brainless person mess's up and needs help from the rangers.To be honest,I don't get paid to rescue people. . . .yesterday the guys in the canoe were hanging on to the other boat and one was still in the swamped canoe,thier PFDs and throw cushions were floating away,but they were bound and determined to hang on to that canoe . . .
The really sad part about the guys in the canoe . . .they tried to tell the ANS person that their throw cushions were "coast guard" approved PFDs. Yes they are coast guard approved . . . .but not as PFDs . . .only as throw devices. Then the ANS person rents them life jackets . . . .guess where the jackets were? I saw the rangers pick up the jackets from floating in the lake . . .don't do no good if ya don't wear them.
