Hit the river from about 11 until 3:30 today...
Went back to that same hole where I've hooked a few...Couldn't get any bites today on eggs nor on a spinner despite seeing a few jumpers...Even saw one fish thrashing around in the overhanging brush and limbs...You'd think he was trying to be an amphibian :)
Anyway...Things seemed pretty slow there and so I packed up and moved to a different spot upriver that required a pretty long hike to get to the river. Fished bobber and eggs there as well. Saw a few more jumpers but no takers.
Tried floating my float way down to where I saw a few jumping and rollin' around in a hole on the far bank. Had to make quite the cast to get there...Just as my bobber got down there it got all snagged up...When I pulled it loose, despite running a bobber stop below my float, I lost the entire float rigging. Shortly after I noticed the salmon down in that hole jumping some more. Hope they don't get hooked on my egg leader down there and can't live to survive another day.
Since it would have taken me too long to re-rig another float, I picked up my drift rod and first cast with a spinner...Snagged up...Lost a spinner...Ugggh! Just wasn't my day.
So, I tried a cheap homemade jig and also another spinner with no success.
Packed it up, called it a day and went scouting out new ground.
Not as many fish jumping or rolling where I was today and most of what I saw were darkies.
Looking forward to this rain pushing some fresh ones upriver...
