Re: Where to Move Too????

No, retired. Can live anywhere. I like Taos but also Silver City. Has to have some mountains. Maybe south of Durango. Need public land to romp around.
Oregon also on short list- steelhead, etc.

Kenai Peninsula

Been thinking about a trip and I am looking at the Kenai River or area but I am wondering how crowded it gets in some areas. Is it shoulder to shoulder? Everyone spin/bait or fly?
In addition,...

Re: Help Needed: techniques for Coho/Kings in Oregon o

I have done very limited fishing for both but from the little I've done, I started out for Chinook because they are larger. For me they tended to run straight. If they jumped, it was like a porpoise...

Re: Bear Spray

Well they say if a bear is growling and popping his/her teeth then the charge is to make you go away. That would be a situation to face the bear and slowly back off.
If the bear is silent, then...

Re: Denver area recommendations for early July

Ditto on the road into 11 mile canyon. You really need a 4 wheel on that road. On the Dream Stream. Last time I was there a couple with a guide were on the other side. They were catching Zippo. ...

Ship Camp Gear

Camping saves you money and you can sit in front of a fire at night. Often you can camp close to the stream you want to fish.
Problem: If you fly, say from Florida to Oregon. You need some way...

Re: Denver area recommendations for early July

So you are south of Denver a little. The most obvious would be to take Rt 67 straight over to Deckers. I've always gone in on a different route from denver proper, I think Rt. 67 is a country road....

Re: Bear Spray

Thanks on your griz encounter. As I said, I've bumped into a lot of black bears and never had one charge, only the really big one that didn't run off and seemed to be getting worked up so I backed...

Sacramento near Sacramento

This may sound inane but it seems if salmon are mentioned on the Sacramento it is way up near Redding. Wouldn't they have to swim the whole length of the river? I'm new to all this but is there any...

Re: Hot Creek, Upper Owen Valley

Well if I was a wild trout and someone stuck me there I'd be worried about raptors and I'd probably swim down to the Owen. There were virtually no weeds, if there were weeds then I could hide there.
