Some friends and I took a 44 mile off road trip today to the Bill Williams river that runs from Lake Alamo to Lake Havasu.
Weather was great sunny and close to 80deg.
Not much of a river by most people's standards but running through the Mojove desart it's a refreshing place to have some lunch.

    It looks like a great place. Nothing is better than the wide open spaces...to visit.

    Sort of looks like that river was bigger once. Trout?

    That river begs to have a fly-line laid onto it. Simply gorgeous!

    No trout but channel cats,yellow belly mud cats,Bluegill and lg mouth bass,ya also might catch a snapping turtle or two.

    Hawken,
    The Alamo lake is made up of the Big Sandy and the Santa Maria rivers that were damed up years ago and the Bill Williams river is what comes out of the bottom of the dam.
    The dam is overseen by the Army Corps of Eng.and runs into Lake Havasu that is part of the Colorado river system.

    Jason,
    Thats why I live out here,I can take off from my house and within 15 minutes be where I don't have to see another human all day unless I want to.

    Dan,
    The river changes size all the time just depends on how much water they let out of Alamo Dam.

    I grew up in the wide open spaces, but it took forever to get anywhere I wanted to be. I would handle it much better now that I don't really want to go anywhere. :up:

    Salome is a small town in the middle of nowhere and it takes over an hour to get bto the nearest town big enough to have a Walmart or major food market chain,heck the biggest thing we had happen here in the last 28 years was the opening of a Family Dollar.
