There is nothing sweeter than using paid vacation to go fishing, when the weather is going to do this:

Thur
Mar 12 Sunny 59°/33° 0 %
Fri
Mar 13 Mostly Sunny 60°/39° 10 %

(Although fish are anti-sunshine) I don't care, I just want out of the office, and it'll be nice compared the the blizzard last Sunday.

Oh and the river is going to do this:
(I'm not sure it's so great, but it's better than that chocolate milk a few weeks ago)

Maybe, just maybe, tomorrow I'll get lucky and get something other than a branch in a tree.

Fingers crossed.

Its on the drop, normally we can find willing participants while the water drops... But DANG! Call in sick the 18th. I dunno how bad the 'Slaw gets at near 13', but thats what I like to see if it isn't at bankfull, riding around 13!

Good luck. I hope you can get into a couple. I want to see some pics if you do.

Lol I got selected for Jury Duty (for the third time!) on the 17th. My workplace is always suspect this time of the year when I call in "sick". They know I never get sick :( and that I have a fishing problem. They suck like that. I need to find a new job and tell everyone I hate fishing.

I'll try to get some pics if I kill something with an amputated fin. If I get a wild fish I'm not sure there will be pictures... I'm goin' it alone, and my dog fails at photography. I don't like to stress the fish anymore than necessary, so I try to get them unhooked and on their way as fast as humanly possible.

In high school I used to act like I hated fishin to my first, and fourth period teachers. Because chances were good, that if the fish were in... I was fishing.;):lol: Could have used my time a lot better, but as long as the ones who care/check on you think you hate fishin, you are all clear to fake sick!:cool:

It's faking sick for a good cause, that's what I say. I never get sick (which is amazing because I work face to face with sick people everyday in a doctor's office), so why should I be punished and not allowed to cash in on my sick leave? lol that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Good Luck!

I want to make it out again this weekend.
I might make it out this weekend, but I don't know. weather's gonna be crummy and I really have a lot to do at home....but then again...this is probably the last weekend I'll be out until the summer run on the McKenzie...so perhaps I should.

Haha yeah I found the trail too, didn't linger long though, it was snowing and I was puking, and it was generally not a good scene. So perhaps tomorrow I'll have it to myself, sans the snow and angry stomach.

Daybreak stake out is key at whittaker. I'm curious to see how packed it is during the week...it's been a long time since I've been out there during the week. Stagecoach has a lot of good access that isn't overly obvious, you have to look hard sometimes, but there's some really sweet bank spots along the way between the 4 and 8 mile markers.

New tires without gas to move 'em forward huh lol. That really sucks I totally empathize on lack of gas funds. This will probably be my last weekend fishing until june because of that very reason.
