FISHING -- I was minding my own business this morning fishing along the shore of Lake Roosevelt today when...
OK, it wasn't actually a stampede, but these mule deer had been trotting along the shore right next to the water (the spring drawdown is underway) for at least 400 yards as I stood still by my rod. Apparently they didn't see me until I snapped their photo. They they ran the bank and melted into the bitterrbrush.
The deer were wet, indicating that they had been swimming. Can't say why or how far.
Oh, yeah... the trout fishing was good, too.
