You suck Dave. :P I ended up enjoying a nice walk along the river this morning because of your report, ended up experiencing retirement life with Chris for two hours at MacDonalds. Water looks like green tea mixed with soy milk. ;D
Lol...That sucks... no vis at all?

6 inches maybe... Perfect sockeye condition. ;D

It's probably starting to clear up now if it remains dry for the rest of today.

Water conditions were good today, they must have been as I even caught one, be it fairly small. I guess a small one is better than none. ;D

Just got a report from the river. The river is in really good shape with 2-3 feet of vis with a slight wind. The river is crawling with fishermen so if your are planning to head out I would wait till about 10-11 and let the fishermen that are out there head in for breakfast. The fishing has been good as the person that called me has lost 2 already lol  ;D

I wish I was one of those ants out there, but my darn back is just getting in the way. It sucks when a permanent injury gets in the way of the things one loves to do  :'(

Water looks good.  But way to sunny and windy today out there for my liking... I have chores to do that I have been putting off... So I'll do those and hope for at least no wind tomorrow! :)

Wind died down yesterday afternoon and it was quite pleasant after 3pm. LOTS of fish caught yesterday.

Mild out there but the wind made it a little tough getting a good drift on every cast but I was able to hook into 3 with the first and third ending up in the brood capture tube, 2 hens, 8 to 9 pounds for one and 11 to 12 the other, nice bright fish and both put up a good tussle before I tucked them in the holding tubes. I was glad I was packing 2 tubes.

Packed it in once the sun hit the water, besides was tired from all the activity. ;D
