photoblog image McCoy Flat Reservoir

McCoy Flat Reservoir

McCoy Flat Reservoir is part of Lassen National Forest. This reservoir is stocked annually with trout. My Dad, uncle and I went fishing there July 5th. We didn't even get a bite. I remembered fishing there from my childhood. Fond memories. The thunder storm you see gathering in the sky provided for some beautiful shots but also started dozens of wildfires.

It started a fire 5 miles behind my uncles farm near Antelope Lake which we had just visited a couple of days before. This fire burned over 22,000 acres but never crossed over the peak where the farm is located.

I love the lowering sky, John, but am sorry to hear about all the fires. So glad your dad/uncle's farms weren't touched.
John Eagle: So are we. Yeah, the skies up there are incredible. I just purchased a Canon Rebel XT. Can't wwait to go back and shot with it. smile

Dramatic skies and lovely trout waters. Maybe they forgot to stock?

Great picture.
John Eagle: I think somebody got there before us and caught them all. smile
