Default From one extreem to the other

The day started early when my alarm woke me at 0300. I was on my way to pick up my buddy by 0330. After picking him up and getting a few things at the gas station store; we were on our way by about 0415.







The drive went by rather quickly as we BSed’ about things. Once up in the mountains it was nice and cool. This was a nice change as the day before was 94F in the valley. The day before that was worse at 102F.







Once we made it to the road we wanted to take we noticed a sign that read “Closed to low clearance vehicles”. **** I knew I should have taken my other vehicle. Oh well let’s just see how bad the road is….







Well after driving on it a bit we decided to turn around. I did not want to get close to our destination and have to turn around. We decided to go the other way to the river. It wasn’t that bad and we only lost about 30 minutes.







Once we made it to the river we found a spot and got out. We geared up and made our way down to the water.

After fishing this spot for a bit (and loosing quite a few “flies”) we decided to move on.










The next place was a lot better looking. Up until this point we had not seen any fish on the river let alone any Chinook. I was fishing a spot and I saw a rather large fish break the surface. This gave me hope that there were fish in the river.

Unfortunately neither of us hooked up with any Chinook the entire day. At around 1500 we decided to pack up the heavy gear, head way up river; and use the lighter equipment to throw dries to trout. This ended up being the best decision of the day.







The area up river was a little more barren as there was a fire here.

We ended up coming across a pretty fun little run. It worked out well as the fish were holding on either side of the river. We were able to stand in the middle on a sand/gravel bar and fish both sides of the river.

There were plenty of little fish that were very willing to accept the stimulator that was floating by.

At around 1800 we decided to call it quits. We packed up and headed back home. After dropping my buddy off at around 2030 I headed home. Although we still have not managed to land any Chinook, I had a fun day.




Hope you enjoyed the report

102 degrees! Do the Idaho potatoes cook in the ground when it gets that hot? It's been in the 90's here for the last week (and then some), but the temp dropped into the 70's yesterday and today. Guess where I went!

I always enjoy your reports, Sasha, and love the photo's! Thanks

Yea that is ok I used to like in PHX and I DO NOT MISS it Plus it has cooled down again up here. It rained again yesterday as well.


Glad you guys liked the report. I didn't take as much time writing it as the BJAC creek report. I should have read it prior to posting, as there are some obvious errors.

Oh well....... Hopefully I will be able to post up some salmon pics this year.

Sasha: Great fishing report as always, very enjoyable to read. Your photos are great also, you can tell you have been getting some rain as everything is pretty green, like around here.
