Fishing Cabin For Sale "A New Breed"

Search  ZILLOW  ZIP 84760

Following the fire/flood ash damage to the reservoir last summer, almost all of the Rainbow Trout in the lake were killed. A few of the spawners survived but not many. A self spawning lake such as this would recover but it would take years.
The Utah Fish and Game stocked 13,000 7" Tiger Trout fingerlings in the cleaner lake in November prior to ice over.

The Tigers are an aggressive species that are known for nicely fighting anglers (an excellent game fish).

The fish have done very well from 7" to 13" in seven months.

Being a sterile breed, they will grow while the Rainbows move to recovery.
Click on the picture to see them as we wish they were!!

I fished the lake in mid July, fishing was excellent and the Tigers have adapted well and are surface feeding constantly. 

The meat is very pink when skinned and has a very mild flavor.

It doesn't get any better than this!

Mechanical/Electrical Design

Use great care in the review of the electrical design of the solar powered cabin you may be considering.

I might even suggest a QUALIFIED home inspector. A PE would be my choice if you feel uncomfortable.

Click on the picture and notice the water storage tank and the concrete block vented battery enclosure in a dedicated utilities room.

There are a number of considerations for winter and summer use.

I have always had hot showers for 25 years irregardless of the rest of the planet. 3500 gallons of clean water in the basement.
Plumbing design is more than important!

Don't forget the trout!!!!

How about a 720 square foot code built toy box???

Solar powered lighting!

The Crack

The front glass was installed 25 years ago by Bud and I. It was 15 degrees and snowing but we got the two center panels installed in one day. 

Early last year the crack started, not bad for 25 years of hot and cold with an occasional bird strike.

The 12" crack showed itself in February and began to grow.

No worries here since the glass was cracked on the outside of the 1/4" laminated safety plate. Lami' will not fall apart (windshield glass).

By July of this year, the crack was about 7' long and growing at about 3" per month. Click on the pictures for more detail.

 An old friend from Vegas and his buddy brought me a new piece of glass and installed it.

This piece of glass is 4ft by 10ft in size. I didn't remember the size being as difficult to handle as it is.

My custom hoist to lift the glass into place (110 lbs) was scoffed at and the three of us just lifted it into place.  

All new trim and the job was done correctly. Remove and Replace in six hours.

Thanks Guys!!!
