Well back to a day at NASSIR.

BeenShot, I know you live on a river, but the same river everday can get borring.

Do you want to go rafting or tubing etc.. at NASSIR?
I'm thinking I will if I have a few folks to go with.

I used to do the Spring River up here near me 2 or 3 times a year long ago, but same nice river too many times got boring and now lucky if I go once every couple of years!
I only go now when friends are also going as many of them I don't see very often and we have a blast on the river as a small group together.

I know allot of folks will want to spend the days riding, I am thinking I can ride anytime, I might rather play on the water more this trip.

I play in the water all the time so I will probably be more interested in riding but if a big enough crowd is willing, I could be persuaded, afterall this gathering is about having fun with friends that we hardly get to see.:waving:

I would like to chime in here, our group will be arriving Fri. the 4th and we are camping at Kickstand. we were planning on going rafting Sun. so it wouldn't interfere with events. However if a few others would like to go I could see us changing our plans and go as a larger group.:waving::action::thumbsup:

I been planing to raft also, but Marina when I called they said the lake is nice and warm to play in, but the river is about 40F near the lodge campground!

Might want to check the water temps before I jump in anywhere. LOL

Only $10 for a 10 day fishing permit and all that's needed for the lake.
For the River also need a $10 trout stamp good for the year.

So if I fish at the lodge campground river it only cost $20 for the trip. I was told it is stocked with trout.
Sounds good to me, now where did I put those old crank phones and the Dynamite?? LOL

I see a good fish dinner in my future, or a very hungry night!
I don't fish! LOL

Might be a good time to learn though!

OK, you can teach me how to fish.
I love a good fish fry also, might even be better with real fish instead of the frozen store bought I end up with! :ROFL:

I think the way I fish I'd do better eating the worms! At least the meal would be larger! :ROFL::ROFL:

Hey, look through my store and see if the knifes and fish stuff look decent, if I have them in the store. I only have about 400-600 items online right now of about 1800 I could sell.

I can bring a set or couple, if I place another order for stuff before I get there and I'm sure I will the way some things been selling fast as I get them.

Heck, I may trade a $10 set for a 10lb fish even up, but you take my picture as I hold my new fish! HA HA.
No CARP! LOL

I don't see to many people fish the rivers a whole bunch there in the summer. The lake is pretty busy with boats but never see to many fish caught. I would have thought the waters coming out of the dam would have been tempered somewhat as it goes through the turbines. We use to go up to my brother in laws house in Potsdam NY years ago. The river in the back of his house was like the river there, shallow, wide body of water moving pretty good. But at 7 PM every day, they would open the dam to release water and it was warm. We dug holes in the river bed for our chairs, then sit in the water and and wait for it to come come up. At full release, the water would rise right to chin level and the temp about 95 to 98 degrees, that was great!. Doesn't sound the same here, and I think the river in that spot is pretty deep, it gets shallower as it goes out through the mountains.

Is that 10 day fishing permit only good at Fontana Village or is that good throughout the area?
I did not ask that, but I "think" it is a state permit and good for the whole state. But would need to find out for sure!

Ya, I don't know anything about the area.
When the Guy said 40F on the river I was like WHAT! :ROFL:
I mean heck, that is the SOUTH!! July!! I would not expect 40F anywhere other than in a beer cave. :ROFL:
Even if it is in the mountains! LOL

I hear they don't sell that PBR stuff down yonder....Ole Chromo might be SOL!;)
That settles it, I'm bringing the trailer! :ROFL::ROFL:

Actually I'm not sure, but I think when I was at Telico a couple years ago they sold it then.
Maybe they only sell the good stuff now?
