Foggy Early Morning at Diamond Belle Ranch Walker Lake

Of course you can be lazy and sleep in late. The silence overnight might be deafening.

But to see a sight seldom seen, full of gold light and light lacey fog on our trophy fishing Walker Lake, rouse yourself from under the comfy down comforters, tippy toe through the great room and step out onto the porch to see the magic of a foggy early morning on the lake.

You are likely to find fellow travelers, sitting on the deck drinking in the kind of tranquilly they can't find at home. The coffee will be on early and you can take a minute to partake of our complimentary continental breakfast.

For the adventuresome, now is the time to hike around the entire lake. Just few miles and, at this time of day, you are more likely to see the deer or even a moose. For sure you'll see chipmunks, and birds maybe even our resident Eagle as she swoops low over the lake to pick up a tasty trout breakfast for her young.

The fog won't last long. You'll be back just in time to break out your fly rod and put a reel in some of our magnificent rainbow trout.

We are fly-only, catch and release lake private lake so you'll have to put them back into the lake but only after you've gotten a photo to show your friend what it is like to spend a day, a week end or a week in the Okanogan Highlands.

Surely, building familiarity with guests and hosts is a good thing. The world needs more communication and personal interaction. But the very act of showing a photograph of every host gives racists the key to shunning people they don’t like. Read more Leave comments

Getting good folks to work for you is easier than you think. All you gotta do is put yourself in their shoes, and do it literally. Leaders do the toughest jobs, not the easiest. Leaders must be out-front or they are really only stragglers. Read more Leave comments
