The yellows at Colonet are still biting good..as well as San Martin, about 150 miles south of San Diego. I want down to the Old Mill yesterday to scout around and get a little paddling in. Ran into some good folks, had a couple beers and told fishin' stories. Sure is nice to be in a tranquil spot. Here's a few shots from the San Quintin area.
