An Old Missouri River Oxbow Lake
A short drive north of Council Bluffs is a beautiful Lewis and Clark State Park.  The park holds Blue Lake, a really old oxbow lake that has been there since I was a little boy.  A couple of decades ago I  fished it with my son when he was young.  The lake was the typical narrow body of water that ran north and south and then curved to the west to form the oxbow. You would think that this type of lake would have a mud bottom, but back then the water was relatively clear, so the soil under the water must have been sandy.  The second thing about the lake that was interesting was it contained an unusual of weed covering almost half of the surface.  Looking through pictures of lake weed, it appeared to be Milfoil weed. This is what you would see if you looked straight down into the lake.  This is

The Salmon of South Dakota
I have a close friend that I went to college with and we used to fish the trout streams of north central Nebraska with great success.  The years went by and jobs and family seemed to take up our free time and there was little opportunity to get together.  A couple of years ago he said to me, “Let’s you and I go fish Oahe for some walleye and whatever we can come up with.”  This was not only an opportunity to renew an old friendship but to catch some fish with an old friend.  While we always stayed in touch, this was the first opportunity we had to get together in decades. He told me about exciting experiences he had fishing for salmon off the face of the Oahe dam in 70 to 100 feet of water.  He fishes for salmon with a gentleman that just loves to fish for salmon more than any
