Beavertail Lake



we ran into logging trucks before we even hit the gravel



Beavertail Lake
complete with our own private dock



and a sweet little campsite all to ourselves




sure was pretty when the sun was out



this guy is the reason for the lake's name
he was busy eating the green reeds



then to our amazement several loons flew in
we counted eleven adults in total...lots of calling


the most we have ever seen before is two parents and two babies
such a beautiful bird



afternoon sun breaks between dark clouds



awesome natural heat for my sore back




my sweetheart in the wilderness



molten moss


a cute little "one tree" island


we paddled into a bay and spotted this huge nest
an eaglet was squawking but we couldn't see it




then mom showed up and really got an earful
after a few minutes she got tired of it and flew off




Reginald Lake
we have had good luck with a dry fly here




it was great to have a warm sunny day



just relaxing



then a snake swam by
yikes...it was 2' long



and while I was busy getting a shot of the snake
this nice rainbow took my fly...too funny 




it was a fantastic four days with lots of wildlife
and some great fishing

  1. Hi Russ,
    What a perfect fishing weekend! Eeeks, a snake....in the water.....my worst nightmare....I would have been hard-pressed to put my hands in the water for quite some time!
    Love your sweetheart picture. Black background makes your pictures look even more fantastic.
