Pinedale Boat Club's Father's Day Fishing Derby (posted 6/21/16)
Terry Allen
There is nothing like a warm alpine day at Fremont Lake to bring out the fishermen, sun bathers, sailors and brunchers.

Dusty Liddle started off Sunday right with a 9 pound brown. About an hour later Ron Wilson brought in a 13.2 pound Mac.

Ted Porwoll posted a photo of his son Miles on Facebook and agreed to let me include it in this story. Miles won $100 for the biggest rainbow.

This years derby had 102 entrants and most of the boats seemed to be trolling at the north end of the lake.

Mike Fitzgerald had a full boat of fishermen but was still trying for one of legal size, 24 inches or better. "We saw a bunch and we broke off a couple," said Mike. Amber Varela held up a 22 incher that Mary Hines had caught but was 2 inches too short to weigh in. Last year, Amber caught a fish right off the dock and won $100.

David Pape brought in a nice 4.2 pound, 25 inch brown to the weigh in, and I took a photo.

Chef Jeremy Horn of Lakeside Lodge stood at the ready with his fish cleaver. "I have offered to anyone who brings in a clean fish that I'll cook it for them," he said.

Steve Sala came in hot, but it turned out he hadn't entered the derby. Since most of us like looking at fish, I have included a shot of one of his anyway.

Jesse Woolbright had been out in his fishing kayak but it got sort of rough with the wind driven waves and the boats so he decided he was fine taking a snooze.

I trolled along the beach looking for some fish stories, but didn't find any. I did find sisters Kelsey and Kathryn Thomas from Cora soaking up the sun, so I decided I'd end this fish story with them.

Pinedale Boat Club Kid's Fishing Derby 2016 (posted 6/21/16)
Terry Allen
The Pinedale Boat Club held their annual Kid's Fishing Derby on Saturday, June 18 at the Kids Fishing Pond in Boyd Skinner Park in Pinedale. There were $750 in marked fish, gifts, door prizes, hot dogs & drinks. This event was for kids under 14 years of age.

Gannett Fisk posed with his nice trout. "I think it's about 23 inches and about 6 pounds," he said. "But I'm not a weight calculator." I asked him to pose with his fish but Gannett didn't want to get all sticky again so I asked him to just lay down with his fish for the photo. Seems to have worked pretty good.

Fabian Vega caught a nice trout about the same size as Gannett's. "I saw it and wanted to catch it so I catched it," he said. "I told him: I want you to come over and I'll catch you, and it worked!"

Little Aleynah had a pretty good cast going but wasn't getting any bites, so we took a look at the worm to make sure he looked appetizing. Yep. "Thrown him back in and try again."

Wendy Rohrer, the Fish Derby secretary said they had over 40 kids entered in the derby. Rich Rohrer said Game and Fish stocked the pond with 152 fish from 6 inches to 6 pounds. "We really need to thank Matt and Joe at the Boulder Hatchery for netting all those fish and then doing the clipping I.D. for the event," he said.

A Ranch Rodeo Father's Day (posted 6/21/16)
Terry Allen
The chute was banging under the hooves of the agitated bronc as Buck Schouboe climbed over the rail and got astride the restless bronc. Even though the bronc handers had a hold of both ends, he didn’t settle down much. Buck tried to get himself set as good as he could, but realized things weren’t going to get settled.

"Let’r out, Boys! Let’s go! He yelled. The gate man jerked open the gate and the bronc and Buck busted out. Hopping, twisting, jumping and shaking, the bronc tried everything it could to knock Buck loose but it was like someone had super-glued the saddle. "Beeeep" the announcer yelled into his microphone at the 8 second mark (because someone forgot to bring the buzzer) and the pick-up crew rode up alongside buck and the bronc and Buck jumped off.

Clint Grimes brought back the Hi-Country Ranch Rodeo again this year and judging from the folks filling the bleachers, I think there were almost three times the numbers of 2015.

Last year I posted a lot of action photos, which meant we couldn’t get a good look at the athlete’s faces. I decided to do some portrait style shots this year so you might be able to see in their faces some of the hard work and dedication that goes into being a Ranch Rodeo competitor. Please forgive me for neglecting to include a lot of the female athlete’s faces. It was Father’s Day and I guess I focused on that.

The events this year were:
National Anthem, Grand Entry by the rodeo queen carrying the flag on horseback, Bronc Riding, Team Roping, Mini Broncs, Doctoring Teams, Trailer Loading, Team Tying, Women’s Steer Stopping, Saddle Cow Riding, Team Roping, Chute Roping and Branding.

Casey Riggs of R and R Rodeo supplied the mini broncs for the event. He also supplies the mini broncs to the world championships in Las Vegas.

Zach Sargent came all the way from Texas to work for the Upper Green River Cattle Association. "I saw a job posting, so I brought my two horses and $200 bucks, and I’ll be working here ‘till November," he said.

Slade Morton told me that if I’d like to see a cattle drive, I can catch one between Dunham Road and Ryegrass at daybreak on Wednesday. It is Barney Ranch cattle and crew.

Please let me know if I made any name errors and I’ll fix them. If you know who the unknown cowboys are, please let me know and I’ll give them a name. You are welcome to share the photos among yourselves. I also sell hi-rez prints in case somebody wants to send one to family or something. Contact: txpartisan@gmail.com

Casting for Recovery - Color Dash (posted 6/19/16)
Terry Allen
Casting for Recovery is a fly fishing retreat program for women with breast cancer. These retreats offer opportunities for women to find inspiration, discover renewed energy for life and experience healing connections with other women and nature.

"Here in Wyoming we do one retreat a year for any age, any stage," said Mary Turney. "We totally run the program through donations. We have put 70 Wyoming women through the program since 2011."

Steven Sanders started the dash on crutches and awhile later he crossed under the finish arch with a smile on his face. "I fractured my foot and tore some tendons three days ago," he said. "I've always been a dork, so I decided to gut it out. My motto is, Do or do not...there is no try."

Tony Wissroecker, director of the Color Dash tour, said there were over 200 official participants in this event. "In L.A. we had 2000. In Perham, Minnesota which has a population of 4000, we had 800 participants.

Facts to ponder:
1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
Casting for Recovery has conducted 535 retreats in 46 states nationwide and served 7000 women.

If you would like to join the 1600 volunteers, their email is: info@castingforrecovery.org
