Couple Days in Kinzua Country

Since my wife and I got home from vacation, it seems we have had nothing but a ratrace. Getting caught up at work, our central air blowing up and needing replaced and finishing up some projects at camp since we replaced the floor last month. We got to go up for two days this week and finally had some "smell the roses" time. I am an idiot and forgot the camera at home so all I have are some pics when we got home. Boy would we have had some good pics.
After all of the hot and humid weather we've had, it was really great to get to camp. Last night it got down to 54 degrees and I was relieved to have to pull a sheet on due to being too cool. I always sleep the best at camp.
We had a great pizza at Pepe's in Kane and a couple great breakfasts at 4 Sons. I also had a tremendous cookie dough ice cream and waffle cone at "My Sister's Place" in Mt Jewett. They have the best ice cream cone in all of McKean County in my opinion.
We saw a few deer, mostly does and fawns, a few turkeys, the ospreys at Red Bridge, a skunk digging for grubs in someone's front yard and for the first time in a couple months - no bears this time.
Usually when we are at camp, there are others there with us. This time it was just my wife and I and our dog-Chuck. Chuck has been our baby for the past four years since we got him. Now with our first real baby on the way, I enjoyed our time alone at camp even more.
Chuck absolutely loves to go to camp and go fishing. He is always running through the water, chasing fish, swimming and just in general raising all heck. I am extremely fortunate to have a fishing companion as good as he is.
We fished what is probably my number three favorite stream. There are others where I ususally catch more fish, but this one holds them later into the season well. We caught a few on Monday but this morning we really got into them. I don't know exactly how many we caught, but a lady I work with wanted some to eat so my wife and I each kept a limit of rainbows today in addition to what we caugth yesterday. Biggest one we caught was 15 inches.
We also did some bank fishing at Kinzua Dam and got into some walleyes. Caught about 8 overall, all of which were legal. The smaller ones were only 17-19 inch hammer handles. But we kept the two biggest-a 23 and 25 incher. They were really nice fish and I can't wait to eat them.
So overall it was a great trip. Wish I had better pics. These are a few of our trout, the walleyes and Chuck worn out after a busy trip. Thanks for looking. [img:center][/img] [list][*] [img:center][/img] [img:center][/img]

Glad to see the good plugs for "My Sister's Place". My wife's family(sisters, hence the name) own and operate it. Try breakfast there, I rate it up with the ice cream.

We've eaten breakfast there several times as well and I would agree with you. That cookie dough and waffle is tough to beat though. They need to order more of it though, I've driven all the way up there a couple times and they were out of it.
