August Smallies

The river continues to give up some nice Smallmouth.  The deep colours these fish sport are awesome.  The big lady is on the verge of handing herself over to the Kings.  I witnessed a few porpoise while I spent my brief 45mins on her banks this morning. 

It won't be long until the madness ensues and all hell breaks loose both in the water and more shamefully along the banks.  Salmon season is almost upon us. 

Although I long for some anadromous species to test the new Imperial I do not look forward to the mayhem the Kings bring to the river.  It's all a part of the program I guess.  Stay tuned for Salmon 2011 in the coming weeks.

Ah yes, the annual salmon run. A perfect time to take a family vacation in another country, perhaps even on another continent. Definitely in another world.

Great bronze backs. In the coming months search out quiet stretch of river and leave the circus far behind!
