Warren Jiminez, Leanna Brown and her brother, Alan Brown. Alan says, "If you average it out for a year it probably costs me about $150 or more for each time I take my boat out. You know, that includes the price of the boat, trailer, gas, supplies etc. Boating contributes a lot to the economy."



On July 5, 2004 we launched our boat at Yale Park. We fished for Kokanee, went swimming, and toured some of beautiful Yale Lake. We made a pit stop at Saddle Dam Day Use Park. The fishing was good after about 5 pm. Click to enlarge
