  3. The kings will find them Maybe a chum line from out west may work lol
  4. We caught a laker a few years ago Our fly hooked a lost flasher spoon combo pretty sure we had maybe a lost
  5. Went out deep good action on steelhead to 35 ft lake was perfect Small red spoons We will have to have a round up for the lost kings.lol
  6. fishing was slow early .later around noon like last year they turned on between 250 and 400.Look for the cold water 45-47 .No big kings but some nice steelhead
  7. Today's news of what happened in DC was disheartening .Peaceful protesters attacked with teargas and battens .All for a photo op.for him. Dr.Abraham Low famous quote."Peace is the purpose of life.To keep yourself and all those around you peaceful".He also said in times we are in you must put intellect over emotion.Of course we should always apply that rule Now back to fishing ,good salmon action expected this week,
  8. Water was cold 44 Hughes did mark some small browns in 60 ft The rain is here maybe try later
  9. I'm having difficulty taking out. Cable Seems nut is stuck in housing tried soaking it Any suggestions welcome Thanks John
  10. There is a old group for people who have nervous problems.Its called Recovery Inc.It was founded By Dr.Abraham Low a few years after AA started in 1937.They(former patients) teach you a method of will training You can handle stress a lot easier I was a group leader for over 25 years.Now I concentrate more on fellow veterans and my fishing..www.recovery-inc.org.Its also free.
  11. Went out friday late morning thinking the kings were in deeper water so I didn't bring surface rods.Trolled out to 100 and marked few fish or bait.Came back in 20 ft and took a small king on a blue dolphin stinger.It also hit on a leadcore down about 15.Started to look like rain so I pulled up . Later found out the kings were shallow for next time.Today there was a dark mudline along the shore from the storm.Looks like later this week the weather is headed for where it should be and south winds but also a lot of rain.Another year kings have shown up early.
  12. Survival went from 50% to almost 90 %.I have often caught them along with kings.If you can greatly reduce mortality why not catch a few if the kings are scarce.Last year we tried towing them on the surface awhile but it didnt work as well if you got them deep and released them
  13. I saw this article awhile and wanted to share it.Studies now show a high mortality in releasing lake trout.up to a 60% mortality in warmer water about 50 degrees.I tried this last year using a downrigger and never saw one surface.A nice idea would be using a camera.The salt water rockfish sportsmen have been using this with great success. http://www.seagrant.umn.edu/newsletter/2013/05/let_em_down_easy_returning_a_fish_to_deep_water.html
  14. If you want smelt lewiston ,art park is where you want to go .Havnt been in a few years but looking to go this year.They should be running soon
  15. I have 6 stocked 15 years ago I think they became victim of our huge blue heron maybe otters They cleaned out the hydrilia mess Black dye and aeration helps Getting some more this year Younger fish eat more weeds Never caught any
  16. Look back 100 years ml number 1 was very one wore masks .it worked One bad thing it went on for 3 years.hope we do better
  17. Dr,Abraham Low wrote a great book Peace over Power In the Family Domestic peace boils down to this. If it weren't for the issues of right or wrong domestic life would be serene and peaceful. Another great book of his Wisdom of Dr.Low,a $20 source But not to say I've perfected his teachings always the apprentice never the master Humor your best friend temper our worst enemy
  18. One thing that makes me nervous is my friends living at the VA .Ive been visiting them for several years through many flu outbreaks.Sometimes they will stop visitation for a short time.Two years ago the flu seemed to stick around there but little quarantine. The last years I began advocating for my friends because of problems there.It cost my volunteer status but I still keep up the fight This year no visitors but my concern is staff bringing it in which is almost impossible to stop.Like all the nursing homes who have it now.even with no visitors. I know many of them and depending on family ability might do better at home If it was my parent or family I would take them home if they could. Once its starts it will be hard to stop.
  19. My hat is off to all the brave healthcare workers who risk their lives helping sick people today.We think things are bad here just check out what the virus is doing in poor countries.My idea is to give another trillion for aiding these poor c ountries.In 1920 the second wave came which was much worse then covid 19.A Lot of it was poor countries suffered so much that the virus mutated into a awful bug. We can't afford to make the same mistake this time. Today sort of reminds me of my year in NAM,dont you think. Countdown the days ,remember.
  20. nice dog,they sure are our best fishing buddies.I will miss mine this year.
  21. Take any kings yet?Might give it a try tomorrowthinking of putting in my smaller boatfor awhile.
