    • Hi, I’m looking forward to this event! Have you had a chance to prepare a note to those attending about cost, groceries, etc.? I am inexperienced in sink-line white bass fishing. I have the sink-line equipment, guidelines on white bass fishing and some bait flies Stacy Lynn set me up with last weekend. If possible, I would like to buddy up with someone. David Dow

      • David,
        I sent a reply, via email, about the Damon 7 Lakes trip. Marcos is heading up the Harmon Creek Trip, as I am still in Colorado, working at site.

  1. OK, after messing up the dates, twice, I think I finally got it right. The E-vite and now the web page match the dates now that Marcos, and others, let me know of the error.
