Breezy Spring Day in the Okanogan Highlands

By Ron Lee
Published: 03/25/20 Topics: Fishing, Guest Ranch, Weather, Wildlife Comments: 0

It's another beautiful sunny day in the Okanogan Highlands today. A bit breezy, which gives a little chop on the open area of the lake. Fishermen like to call that a chironomid chop.

The aerator has worked beautifully all winter keeping this area of the lake open. If you could get out to the open water, I bet the fishing would be amazing!

The early geese appreciate it and seem to know where to find the open water this time of year. I bet there isn't any other open water for miles!

We are ALL looking forward to spring ice off!

Goat Patrol

Although it is still frigid at our 4,200 elevation, today February 19th was bright and sunny. Seems like the green things will be greening up soon. Maybe its time to call the Goat Patrol to visit our Diamond Belle Guest Ranch.

Wayne and Jenny Knoz have a unique workforce. They bring out friendly employee goats to your farm, field, pasture, lawn, hillside or mountain to mow down whatever you want removed in an environmentally friendly manner..

Natural weed control, brush trimming, grass mowing, fuel suppression, pasture maintenance and yes they fertilize while they work.

Plus I must admit they are charming and friendly. Maybe more so than most human co-workers.

So if you has a weed that has gone to seed, this is something you need. Goat PatrolGoat Patrol 509-954-7682.
