Does anyone know a good lamprey fly?
You really don't want to encounter one. They don't move like a snake in terms of a vertebra axis - they swirm every which way and are incredibly difficult to unhook. I just cut the line every time now. The wound you'll get will seriously burn for days.
Good to know
Hold'em if you want them. Doubt they're very good fighters on a fly line since they're so slender...and it's all about sucking the life out of whatever or whoever they suck onto.
Wait, you can catch 'Lamps on fly rods?
Fuck carp man.
The web cam of fish porn is upon us
Ewww! hate those things
Some steelies are going through, first ones I've seen.
Edit: probably sockeye.
There not steelhead. I am sure they are just resident rainbow's.
This is surprisingly addictive.
Some nice sized Sockeye passing through.
Lake Wenatchee here we come!
I just updated with the washington side camera, they are both up and running now.
Brewster is where the big ones are going. So says my psychic powers!
Fish Checker Arm!!!!
Traffic is picking up at Bonnie. Still a bit slow for chinook since the summer fish are waning and the fall fish are just starting to show. If the forecast can be believed the windows will be full of chrome nooky in a few weeks - just like the one half showing in the first pic. Hmm, I may have to get an intermediate line for my 12weight.
Looks like some B-run steel are starting to show too.
And here's two hatchery fish that won't make the count at the Dalles - or get anywhere near a redd.
The counts have picked up again over the last 2 days. Looks like the B-runs are starting to arrive in force. And yes, I need help with my internet fish-porn habit.
