Well,I got to the rest area on I-5 around 8:00 this morning. It's been quite a while since I've been there. I figured I would try since it's not far from home and lilsalmon hooked into one last week a bit up river. The water wasn't bad,a little OFF color. Like countless others say,if you're not losing gear,you're not deep enough...I was deep enough to loose 6 set-ups! Dang! Didn't see nor feel any fish. Just me and the graceful Heron who kept me company. Oh,and the nice young man in a dark blue uniform who sat and watched me for ten minutes. I finally walked up to his car and showed him my license. When I put it back in my pocket,he saw my "Black Banger" and just smiled at me. I've gotten one too many of those prickly heeby-jeeby feelings there in the past. Some weirdo's hang out there. Back home before lunch.
