Nursery Cam Week 2

Back we go! Under the water with the fingerling Trout. The browns are so tiny they look like a school of minnows. The rainbows are as always growing faster than the browns. I compared last weeks video and see no change in the browns but defiantly a small growth in the rainbows. It looks like a few goldies slipped into the brown pen. Enjoy the video, follow the blog and come back next week for another look.

Creek report 6/25/2020

The creek is fishing great, off and on rain has kept the flows above average for this time off year. Water temperature in the morning is between 60-62° but rise quickly over the afternoon Hours and read 66° around 4pm.

Black ants and Beatles are working on top while dead drifting buggers and sculpin patterns have been producing big trout.

Fish early morning for best results. The next meeting is on July 20th at 6pm. Come out and enjoy some food made by club secretary Brandon while we discuss future projects.

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
