Trip report from Sproul SF
A little late, but...
A group of us arrived at camp at noon, May 1 and stayed thru noon, May 6th. I'll start with the positives. The weather was fantastic. Mid 70s during the day, mid 40s in the mornings, no humidity, and no gnats or flies. We had some brush cutting to do around camp and we borrowed a Stihl FS130 brushcutter, what a machine ! We ripped thru briar bushes and small saplings all day long. I highly recommend one, decent price for the power. Fishing activity on Kettle Creek, Pine Creek, YMC were all above average. Some of us bait fish, others strictly fly fish. We all caught fish.
Now for the downer: we DID NOT SEE any big game species the entire time at camp. We did not see or hear any turkeys, no deer sightings, and no bear sightings. Nothing while in the woods, nothing while driving around. As far as game sightings, this was by far the slowest trip we have had in the 25 years of owning our camp. Good thing we had plenty of spring chores to keep us busy.
Grouse activity seemed to be abundant.
