Just another dead fish picture! :smile:

I'm happy happy!




and Kilchis is even happier! He's so proud of Mom!



Fished Nehalem with 500 of our closest friends. I was pretty disturbed by the lack of boater courtesy today. :depressed: People, even guides, blasting by you at 40, less than 20 feet away. Guys, some of these boaters out there are in small crafts, and you can swamp them! I was REALLY surprised by one guide I knew, who actually waved as he went by like this. Bill just shook his head. We were pretty focused on this, because so many people had done this today. Slow down! Leave a wide birth between you and fishermen. It's just common courtesy!

Anyway, that off my chest... Bill and I fished for a long time in the morning with spinners, Kwikfish, even stopped and threw spinners at the jumping silvers... Nuttin.

Finally put on some herring, (real old salted stuff!) and whammed two right away! Bill let his go, because he was dying to use his new hook out tool! :smile: Can you believe that?

Anyway, turned out to be a very fine day on the river. Crowded, but pleasant!

Both of the fish were fresh in, with sea lice. Both caught on herring dipped in Marie's special shrimp scent, 4 ounce lead droppers, fished off the bottom and up a crank, on the incoming tide.

They are hereeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! :grin:

Nice Pictures Jennie. Jordan caught a 25lb Hen on Friday above Roy Creek. It still had decent color to it. Hope you keep catching fish!!!!!!!!!!!

just as a reminder.. it states in the oregon state marine board rule book, "if you swamp or capsize someone elses boat no matter how small you are LIABLE and can be SUED FOR DAMAGES" :depressed: . so think about that next time you rip past someone.
. nuff said. nice fish jennie .. congrats. :cheers:

Marie as always it was nice seeing you today. Thanks for your expertise on the hot scent.
I e-mailed you the chowder recipe as requested. Jen said it was a good one, but didn't have the recipe. It was on the net..........Bobber Down

Nice fish fo' sure. Keep in mind that boats create smaller wakes when on plane. I don't like sleds on rivers anyway, but I always prefer when they go by at speed. It's less wake and they're out of the way quicker.

Hi Jenny,

Beautiful fish.

Meanwhile, I fished Nehalem on Saturday and Sunday and was struck by unusually (for Nehalem) rude boaters. People were blasting through the 5MPH passaged at Wheeler and between the 101 bridge and Nehalem.

I was reassured by pleasant conversations with proper fishers sharing techniques if they had been successful or humor if they had not.

The big tides over the weekend were amazing - fishing near Nehalem was like fishing the Jaws. And at high slack the Bay was really really full.

Kind regards,

I realize that. Still, 20 feet away is too close to rip by in between two fishers. There was plenty of room to do leave a wide birth on the other side of the river.
Bill thought he wanted to make sure people realized he had a limit. :smile: Oh brother!

Beat my chest!
I have a limit! I get really tired of that. A friend of mine was saying it gets so old that it makes him want to fish a quiet stream with no one around, and with fewer, smaller fish, just to escape egos. I agree, at times.

Still, out fishing today was overall a blast. Plenty of courteous, friendly fishers to make up for the few who have no manners.
