Locker, up here we used to fish for ling cod (up to 70 lbs) with live rock cod (4 lbs).

I never landed one. Every time he'd head for the bottom and cut the line

Hey Guy...off and on.

Nothing on the surface yet as the water has been cold due to the constant runoff. Gotta go find the deep holes and work em. Go deep for the Big Dudes. 14-16 Blond/Dark Green Gold Birdnest Nympher that I tie has been working the best the last two weeks.

Gotta admit though, the Big Ones don't do me nothing like hitting on one of these very rare local little beauties. They don't get nothing bigger than 10", but are they ever pretty!!

Chief.... thats what I figured. LOTS of runoff starting right now, Jan and I will get up north pretty soon. Right now the cragging is pretty good down here with the low temps.... going right now for the 10 am meet up.


Bluey.... lets meet up at Hot Creek, you will change your mind.

This is for brother pate:

“I fish because I love to…because, in a world where most men seem to
spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless
source of delight and an act of small rebellion; because trout do not lie
or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond
only to quietude and humility and endless patience… because only in the
woods can one find solitude without loneliness; because bourbon out of an
old tin cup tastes better out there; because maybe someday I will catch a
mermaid; and finally, not because I regard fishing as being so terribly
important but because I suspect that so many of the other concerns of men
are equally unimportant—and not nearly so much fun.”

Mackinaw, Daddy! Lake trout.



They weren't released, and were delicious.

Ever eaten Kokanee??? Holy sh#t, they are tasty!

I can't begin to count the times...

I can TOTALLY relate (as can most that fish regularly) when it comes to having that line SNAP on a beauty...

LOL!!!...

"Hot Creek" is a give me. You can throw a your tiny dick or any piece of cheese with wings on it or anything that looks like one any where in them waters and you'll catch a hatchery dude.

Edit: Added the cheese deal as to not offend any tiny dickers out there.

Catching those TAME fish to me ISN'T really fishing...

It's JUST getting DINNER...

Similar to heading to Safeway...

;-)





EDITED:

Didn't see that "TINY" part first read through...

Guess that leaves me OUT...

Atrer the 4th BIG fish I threw all by fly fishing gear in the river and went back to climbing! Was a great day for him, humbling for me. I'm the one that got this guy into fly fishing to begin with!

Even Safeway wouldn't have helped me that day Locker! He actually gave me the fly he was catching these monsters on and I still couldn't hook up. I shoulda punted him in the water! Was happy for him because this was his special place he wanted to take me to, so at least he knew how to fish it and I was a complete NooB GooB!

on the way back from city of rocks a couple years ago we had driven all day and went way out a dirt road to bivi and pulled into a spot in the middle of nowhere. turned the truck off and cracked a cold one and went walking over to these small ponds that just to be crawling with little fish. they may have been placed there for mosquito control, not sure, but in any case they were hitting off the top like crazy, so a threw on the super small mosquito fly (which almost seemed like a joke when i bought it, it was so small) and every cast was a tiny fish (which we threw back of coarse).
it was an excellent opportunity to introduce makayla into the wonderful world of fishing. she was ecstatic!
p.s. caught a couple rainbows at cherry lake last week
