Hit the mckenzie today or i guess yesterday...( got off the river at dark ) with Everet464 and got him into not only his first chinook but two others. Of course the one that was chrome bright ( and i mean CHROME not bronze ) got off ! Youll have to ask Everet464 about that. HaHa ! But the first was a bronzy hen that we kept for the eggs and i think she will smoke up fine, the second was the chromer that became an LDR and the last was about a 20lb dark buck nook. We let him live. No steelhead ??? We didn't even see any. I think they do the trucking at random dates now....i hope they havent stoped the recycle program for this year or ill be bumed out. Heres a few pics...we also got video and i will try to upload that soon !

My first big fish! That was an awesome day, now I just need to get into one on the fly, and I can die a happy man... or at least start classes again a happy man.

And, that fish was spunky, I lost all guilt about that LDR overnight.

Sounds like there is a story behind the LDR??? Is it a good one? Since I'm completely unfamiliar with the Mac, I booked a trip on Tuesday to catch some of those bad boys (or girls). Hopefully I'll be posting some pics of fish too!

LDR story

LDR story

Well, ill tell it. The fish was bright and hot....lots of head shakes, going into that death roll like coho do...then my anchor lost hold and we slipped into a shallower tailout. When we finally anchored in deeper water he slacked the fish for a brief moment and it came unbuttoned. He did a great job on the third fish though...i didn't get pics of that but i got good video and will try to post it soon.

mck report july 31

mck report july 31

didn't get anything today...it seems the water cooled off a bit and it seemed like it was on the rise ? Seen one nook taken and a boat with a dark hen nook and a steelhead at greenwood. Pulled plugs like crazy and nothin. With the cooler weather/water they were off the plug bite. Should have brought eggs or shrimp...oh well. I think they quit recycling steelhead. Seen only two steel with no tags in their back. Will call odfw monday and see.
