You read right, I have one seat open for tomorrow below bonneville on the C for steelhead.
First PM gets it. I will be launching at about 7am at "the fishery" boat launch.

Running my gear so all you need is a non greasy lunch and plenty of water.

For sure!! I might need some lessons in how to swing a fly in the fast water! :D Seems pretty effective, if I have no luck with some jigs and floats or bait or spinners.

yep we caught plenty of fish, but every dang last one of 'em had a fin so nothing was taken home!!
There was very very little current below bonneville today, so the fish were very spread out and we had to work hard for 'em.

there are many, many more non clipped fish being caught than clipped fish.. I personally believe there are more than a couple hatcheries that stopped clipping fish due to private agendas.

So how did the wind treat you guys out there? Sounds like you guys had a blast even with out any fish to take home. But hey you got to fight the fish and some times thats the best part of it.

There was almost no wind at all today. This time that was a bad thing, there wasn't any windchill so we roasted out there!
Catching fish is fun, but I like to kill and eat my fish!

Now, why would anybody want to do that ??

Just where is this 'at the fishery' boat launch ?? I just might go there instead of Chinook Landing Thursday.
