Just returned from 8 days fishing in BC. River was out the first couple days, but then began dropping and clearing. And fish began being caught. OK, as many were hooked and lost as were caught. But all in all, a very satisfactory trip.

Leaving on a backpacking trip Friday. Then heading to B-10 next week, but that won't be a fly fishing thing.

Did snap a few pics, but I left my new camera with a friend who arrived on my departure day. His camera battery went on the fritz, so he's using mine - and will probably take a ton more pictures than I did anyway - and I'll get my camera back when he returns home.

Noteworthy, but no pics, I caught both my smallest and largest steelhead ever from this river this trip. Big fun.

Good job on the steelhead Sg.

We'd be interested in seeing some of your friends pictures from your camera as well. wink

Well, I'm a bit short on the fishing tales these day.

However, we did a family trip out to Salt Creek Rec Area this past week. Fished the estuary of Salt Creek, and only hook one small Cutthroat.

Fished Lake Crescent and managed to hook one small trout on a dry Damsel.

Also fished a small river near by and hooked a 12" RB on a Yellow Stimulator, (on a 2wt, what a hoot)

Every where I fished, I hooked something, even a finger, but, nothing to write home about.

So the vacation continues.

Hit the salt in West Seattle, and caught 2 Cutts.

Tomorrow my son and I decided to take a hike, will take the bug rods and see what we get.

Getting in the rest of summer before it ends.

Encountered millions of anchovies on the beach today.
The water looked like it was flowing black. Hadn't ever seen them before on this beach.
The cutts were busting on them sending them spraying, but it was difficult hooking up with that much bait around.

Leave Thursday for a month Down Under. Already have the licence for Tasmania trout. Hoping for some fun, but they are recovering from some huge winter floods. Then, some Queensland creek jungles. Like to get an Archerfish there.

Looks like you have quite an adventure in store C'man. I've never traveled that far south, for fish or anything else. Maybe one day. I'm heading north for another week at steelhead that say, "eh." Bon voyage!

Oz is great fun. Last time I did only a small bit of fishing but saw a couple nice trout and streams, one of which I have permission to fish. Like to get a brown or two. They only stocked them once, so they are in all likelihood English/Scots.

Our daughter is finishing up grad school there. We'll visit, tour, bird, photograph. For the hiker, Tasmania has some wondrous treks.

Enjoy the Canuckian steelies.

Looking forward to the Oz and Canadian reports.
Hope you guys have a great time.

I generally take a week off in September and go on a nine day beach coho bender.
Not this year.
Searun fishing has been decent, but watching lots of double digit coho jumping around and not being able to target them is painful to say the least.

Oz update

Had a wonderful trip with lots of birding, photographing, eating, drinking, and general fine time. Plus zip for fishing.

Hit Tasmania in a big storm. The stream I planned to fish (modest creek) was up about 2 metres. All other streams were at least as high and rather brown. Did buy a book on Tassie trouting and it is well worth it-at the right water levels. Almost all wild browns in streams, rivers, and lakes. How do you want to fish them? Tailing (feeding on snails), sight fishing to individuals, big rivers, small creeks, big lakes, small lakes. Plus, they have major sea-run browns (like our cutties but average about twice as large). Lots of bay/estuary fly-casting to aggressive feeders. Next time. And we'll try to be closer to summer than on the cusp of spring.

Was hoping to fish some Queensland streams, too, but there just weren't any where we were that had any access. Had one chance to do some lake fishing for Barramundi (on a 1-wt) but that got rained out, too.

To top all that off, when we landed in LA it was raining for the first time in something like 4+months. When we first retired, everywhere we went it snowed (this included Hawaii). Now, it just rains.

Cm,
Thanks for the report. Bummer about the lack of fishing due to rain, but it sounds like a fantastic trip you had.

Still waiting for pictures and reports from Sg. wink

I was really bummed that the creek we stayed by was out. I had seen a couple taking surface bugs the last time we were there. Probably a km of bank accessible with browns and maybe some platypus. Next time.....

Since we got shut out on coho this year, I've been spending more time chasing these guys this fall and winter.
Had planned to close out the year today, but I'm getting killed by a cold so no fishing today.
Anybody else getting out?
Go Dawgs,
SF
