Man, nobody is open for breakfast early on Sundays. We strike out at Ricky's, Smitty's and Humpty's before finally settling on the A & W at Sylvan lake. We're on the water at Alford by about 8:30, and are pretty much immediately into fish. Backswimmer and damsel patterns do the trick, and it's pretty much "How many 10"-12" rainbows (with the occasional 15"'er thrown into the mix)" do you want to catch?" I've got to head back to town at around 11:30; Frank carries on to Ironside with good success there. The Red Deer River in town is chocolate milk. Drove over Stauffer on 761 and it looks okay; a bit off-colour.
