- Sherwood, OR
Went out to Salish Pond today and fished for about 2 hours. I have to say I was thoroughly unimpressed. I'm not sure if it was the East or West pond. I think it was the East. It was the one right off of Glisan next to a housing community and what looked like some apartments. It was pretty crowded for a small area. There were about 10 people out there with me, none of which were friendly. You are close to the airport so you get a jet flying over about every 5 minutes and I even had a track team run by me. Not exactly a tranquil nature spot. With that being said, it's a good sized pond with good bank access all around so I was hopeful that despite all of the other elements, maybe I'd get a couple good fish. I didn't get one bite! Neither did any others that I could see. I used a shallow crankbait lure, rainbow green powerbait under a bobber, gulp worms with a casting sinker, and a soft plastic zoom fluke. Guess they weren't hungry this morning. I'll wait a while and try again ... you never know it could have just been a bad day.
