Chrome bald head chrome hen:lol:I am loving this years run. Headed out to the Clack after getting soaked and skunked on the Wilson yesterday. I arrived to a beautiful overcast dry morning around 8. The sun was creeping in and out. There was absolutely nobody around and the water was looking really good. After trying some jigs, I drifted some eggs and at about 8:53......Whamo!!!Fish on:D She was pretty tough for 5lbs. 25 in. Seeing that bright fish come up out of the water was definitely exciting. I through a spoon, spinner, jig and some more egg set-ups to no avail. Was out by 11:30:) definitely dog creek looking!!!

:D I figured the more time you put in the better your odds become. As you can notice in the first pic. I attempted the spine sever method and cut the tail to bleed. I think I like the 'ol wood shampoo method better. So many fish:shock:so little time:think:

Nice fish.

Wood shampoo and a knife in the gills is my favorite. It's all about simplicity, not surgery.

Skin to scales then rip the gills with your fingers. That's the way to do it!! ( Deck em' and wreck em') or (Beat em' and Bleed em') either way works.

I noted that. Have you noticed any difference in the resulting meat or strength of rigor that the fish enters? I finally hooked myself up some wire for wiping out the neural canal, but haven't landed a fish since.

I have noted that the meat is considerably better...

Question - I fish and hike a lot on 6 rivers around Portland, but I don't know where the dam hole is that I read about often, on the clack, but where?
