Looks like I'm late on the report again :smt003

First,
Thank you to all the anglers who made the treck to Silver Lake ..... YOU make it all worth it.
Second I would like to thank all the sponsors .... without YOU these events could never have been.

What can I say, KAYAKERS in Northern California are the best group of people I know :smt007 .
The festivities started with a few anglers hitting the water on saturday and getting a feeling for the action. Later the famous Pot Luck .... How can one describe it other than WOW!!!!!! 
The day of the event started with a very enthusiastic gathering of anglers begging to start early :smt005 fortunatley all were able to control them selfs until launch time. Having everyone ready and waiting was a blessing as we got a visit from the park Ranger asking us to rearange a few cars that were in some wrong spots. Fortunatley, everyone was able to obey his request and no tickets were issued and he even thanked us for choosing his lake.
We launched to a beautiful "flat" lake and though trout were the main target, I was content to just be able to paddle in such a beautiful part of this great country of ours. As the day continued, reports came in of a few anglers catching assorted species including Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Mackanaw and even a few Squwa fish. As the day went on I herd more and more reports come in of success and even a rumore of a super fish that turned out to be just that ... a rumore.
As the check in time approached there were a few nice fish brought in including a 21 incher brought in by Roxanne Willis. In the end it would require just a little more to make the top 3. 
Here are the Top Anglers who really had the "Magic on the Mountian"

First Place - Bunny Nunes with 22 1/4"

Second Place - Dillon Gibbons with 22"

Third Place - Adam Koons with 21 1/4"
 (unfortunatley Adam had to leave early for work) 

Total Anglers in attendance = 52

Thank you all again for attending the Silver Lake Kayak Event,
See ya in October at Tiki Lagun,

Eric / Yakhopper

Good job out there Bunny.

I thought I might be in the running till I heard of a couple Macks that were caught. I ended up with 12-14 total trout on the day. Most were 13"-16". The biggest being a 19.5" Brown pictured below. A 21" Mack on Sat also.
