A line to another era

Fishing pole repairman Dennis Evans a rare breed these days

When Dennis Evans isn't out fly-fishing, he's usually hunkered down in his small Toppenish shop replacing guides, cork handles or reel seats on fly rods.

"I can do anything that needs to be fixed on a rod," the 85-year-old quipped.

Streams and lakes more crowded with anglers? More women fishing? Blacks and Hispanics also?

VERNAL, Utah — The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources and the Ashley National Forest plan to save the native Colorado River cutthroat trout population in the High Uintas Wilderness.

"Unfortunately, habitat loss, coupled with cutthroats breeding with and competing with trout not native to the western United States, have caused dramatic declines in cutthroat trout populations across the West. The decline has led to concerns about the species' future," a news release from Ashley National Forest said.

Man drowns while fishing the Greys River

Quote

A 70-year-old man died Tuesday while fly-fishing on the Greys River after he slipped and his waders filled with water.

Mark Osmondson, 70, of Madison, Kansas, was 16 miles upriver from Alpine when he fell, Lincoln County Sheriff Shane Johnson said.

"Osmondson was fishing with his longtime friend's grandson when he slipped on a rock, causing his fishing waders to fill with water," Johnson said. "Osmondson was unable to recover his footing and eventually floated nearly 2 miles down the river where his body was recovered."

No problem seeing Hispanics fishing here. Go to any delayed-harvest stream. They're the ones with the powerbait and the five-gallon bucket full of doughbellies.

White bumpkins attempt to fill that niche on our nearby DH, but they never get enough of the "doughbellies".  Send some of your Hispanics north.

At least they work while they're not poaching doughbellies.
