Fresh?

Postby BlueHeron » Sat Sep 01, 2012 7:57 am

Even a heron fishes fresh once in a while.
Heading today to Seattle and then up to Bristish Columbia for a Family get together. All that ocean/ sound/ bay / inlet/ straight.... up there, and we're going to a lake! Not prime season I'm told, but there are some cutthroat around - so Donna and I are bringing 6 wts (lightest we got) and hope to get out a bit.
Will report back.

Bring home good stories.

Gary says the dodos are "chewing the paint off the boats". Just something to think about.

Got in three partial days of fishing while at a family get together in BC. Two of the days I took brother in laws and nephews - and fished gear. the only real option was to target sturgeon - the water was still too high and muddy to fish for salmon. we got 6 sturgeon each day - with a double to end the first day.
The other day, Donna and I went fly fishing for cutthroat trout.
It was a little slow - but absolutely beautiful. i also got a small Dolly Varden.
Pictures below.
the double was 6 footers, and the biggest sturgeon was 7 feet.
