An Angler's Paradise???

  1. This is a page from the Tacoma News Tribune "Special Section" titled NW Summer. Aren't you glad you live in an "Angler's Paradise".... check out the photo of YOUR paradise according to the TNT! Whoopee.

  2. Looks like my kind of paradise.
  3. That's awesome! My type of fishing! Lol, no not really. ;-)
  4. I've seen that and similar pictures. There is little that I would like more than to forever avoid that clusterf*^k! Mulitiple times I have encountered similar (but not quite as bad) fishing spots, and high tailed it out of there. I would rather fish a location with a .0001% chance of catching a fish than join in with that mess. Dealing with multitudes of skunkings has allowed me to really appreciate my surroundings.

  6. Might be soon if people keep flapping their lips or posting pics of it.....
  7. That would be the Puke in that pic.

    And the spit is far from a secret. There are much better spots on the KP. I guess being a friendly UPS guy has its privileges. ;)

  8. I can't click the link on my phone however I assume its a photo of some gnarly snagolicious gauntlet of death like the Puyallup or Nisqually at mounts road. First and last time I floated my pontoon through there. I was duckin they were chuckin.

  9. It looks like Fortson Hole on opening day of winter Steelheading season.

  12. Not a place that you'll find my ugly mug....
  13. Nothing wrong there. Looks similar to a length of the Alsea River during winter steelhead season -- and the very reason I no longer fish for winter steelhead.
  14. I'd say that looks more like a tackle dealer's paradise.

  15. Full of republicans and democrats trying to get theirs. I'll pass on that stuff.
  16. Ha! Careful what you say politically on here Ed, you'll become a "certified a__hole" according to some!!.... (in other threads of course). :D:eek:
  17. Time and place Larry, not all threads are created equal or as accommodating. Some serve a different purpose. Everyone knows I'm an a--hole.
  18. Well I certainly didn't know that so I guess it isn't everyone.
  19. On the other hand, a zoo like the picture can be VERY entertaining!
    A comfortable chair out of the line of fire (may require binoculars;)), a cold beverage, and a sense of humor and you have something a lot better than most TV shows.
    Think of it as fishing show outtakes.
    Did that at Minter Creek last Thanksgiving. Even Santa was there! It was a hoot!

  20. Yup, the circus atmosphere can be entertaining -- if everyone gets along. There was once a huge chum run in the Miami River in Oregon and it was a circus fersure. Fortunately, everyone in the throng did get along and took it all in good humor. Unfortunately, the run was destroyed for a number of reasons and has gone the way of the wild goose... as have so many wild salmon fisheries in Oregon.

    However, when it comes to winter steelhead, anglers take the sport far too seriously and sometimes fist fights break out or guns are pulled. I didn't sign on this fishing cruise to end up in a bar fight on a river bar. So those who are into winter steelhead angling are doing so without my attendance.
