Hundreds of Rainbow Trout
We were delighted to see so many rainbows along the shoreline in the throes of the spawn. My cameras have about 2 hours of battery life so after a couple of hours, I pulled the cameras, put in fresh batteries, and then placed cameras in a small stream that also attracts spawners.
When filming fish underwater, I quickly set the camera being careful not to step on the redds. I use an extended gripper to minimize the impact on the trout and stay out of the water as much as possible. Then I leave. After I’m sure the battery life has been expended, I return and quickly collect the cameras.
The 7 Gables Resort
We stayed at the 7 Gables Resort just across the street from the lake. They offer motel rooms as well as a restaurant with views of the lake. To our surprise, there was music and a full bar that evening. Lots of fun!
