After the first really cool and damp weekend of the fall last weekend, we’re all signed up for a beautiful weekend at Grand Lake with dry weather and temperatures in the 70’s.

The lake came up fast after all the rain last week – unofficially 7″ of rain in Langley – and the spillways are open, so be careful on the lake.

But it’s still great fishing and it will be perfect boating weather this weekend as well.

Plus, there will be a little breeze throughout the weekend, great for sailing, which brings me to…
