Lake Sabrina
Nice cool breezes, a bit of rain, hail, lightning and thunder-booms were experienced by the many anglers at the Lake over the week. Those cool breezes were needed over the first of the week as it was darn warm up here when the clouds weren’t around. We had almost a half an inch of rain in less than a half hour Saturday night – sure love watching the lightning!
