Sounds fun, I was out there last week 2 times and didn't catch anything or see anybody else catch anything. I fished Monday night and didn't get anything to keep but I did catch a bluegill and a couple 4" brookies, I did see people catching legal sized fish though. I may be able to get out there around 8:00 tonight if all goes well.

Good luck.

14 inches is a pretty good one. My biggest bullhead is 19". I caught it on banana bubilisious chewing gum. I saw a cloud of babies and when you see a cloud of babies you know the parents are around and they were. Anyway, I didn't have any worms so I put the gum I was chewing on on my hook and it ate it.

There's a bunch of little brooks right now, if you head near sunset they'll be jumping near the banks. I've caught them by jigging worms just a few feet from the bank. I've only seen legal size rainbow's taken in the last couple weeks.

I want to talk about this,


Runts.
Runts are the Little trout That always get on your hook when you dont want them, For instance. You are fishing with a Kastmaster and your are Kasting and on Every Kast you get a little trout, Not big enought to keep, 3-7Inches. And eache cast you keep getting those little trout. After a while you start getting annoyed with them, And if you get tired you want to catch a Keeper. So You cast out with Powereggs, And you keep getting those "runts"

Thats Why I call them runts.

They are not afraid of anything. They will Eat or Strike Everything and You will never Catch a Keeper with them around, Or so it seems.

I, for one, would rather catch a couple runts than get skunked, but yeah, it's nice to catch a keeper once in a while.

Ok so I'm gonna sound like a moron when I say this.....but where the heck is Salish Pond at? I can't find a map to it anywhere. Any info would be greatly appreciated, I've never fished it, but I want to, for sure!
