Do we have a leader for this one yet?

Puck
To fish, or not to fish?  What a stupid question!

Nothing heard.

Do we still want to make this trip?

I'd love to but May 1st is a Thursday...

...also- Village Creek is a bit of a hike. I was looking at an alternative I could suggest and what about the Colorado River in Columbus? The old 71 bridge to Beason's Park is only about 6.3 miles. That could make for a pretty leisurely day of paddling & fishing. It's only about 45 minutes for you Katy folk and an hour-fifteen or so for me from the Upper East Side.

Finn is correct.  Columbus (or LaGrange) might be fun, but we couldn't do it the 3rd due to the auction. Perhaps 10 May?

Are you willing to lead this one?  If so, I will modify the trip description this weekend.

And I agree with Wormdrowner, May 10th is a great choice for dates.

I'm verifying the availability of a hall pass from the rib for the 10th. If I can get one I'll gladly be the "leader" on this one.

Sadly, I cannot get a kitchen pass for this one. The rib has to go to a baby shower for her cousin and I'm on daddy detail. Little man isn't quite big enough to spend all day floating down the river. Soon.

This is still a trip I want to make happen at some point though. It's a nice stretch of river with lots of fish.

Do we cancel? 

Or is there somebody else willing to lead?  I am committed to Nilo that weekend.

Why don't one of you contact Ray Russ! He fishes this stretch weekly.  He just doesn't talk about it too much 'cause he doesn't "want a bunch of hot spotters catchin his fish!" But if you approach him in just the right manner say'n "you're the man Ray"  "Nobody knows it like you Ray." "We need you Ray!" You can take one of your guns and kill something while your there Ray." "We'll all go blind folded Ray." "We just want to see you catch big fish Ray!" He just might go for it and from what I have heard...well I'm not supposed to talk!

...or you can just sit at home wish'n you were RAY!
