    Rare appearance, Andy. Good to see you too. Josh, actually 3 splitties and a bead equals 4.

    A Zen sighting; how about that? Maybe he's survived all the beer bashes and panty sniffing exploits of college. Good for him.

    Re: Clearwater Float Help
    I know I sound like an asshole to a lot of you. I'm not trying to rain on your parade, Nate---I really want you to enjoy yourself but this late season Clearwater stuff really bothers me.

    Those fish have been in the Clearwater since September, some as early as late June. That's 5/6 months. Sure there are some fish that are fresh in the system, being that those summer fish filter in all year. though in smaller numbers as the year progresses. However, this is a very small ratio of fish in comparison to the brunt of the run in October. The great majority are exhausted from their long journey of escaping dams and nets. Soon they will get ready to spawn and need to preserve their energy to do so. On the west side allot of summer runs enter late April/early may. It would be unheard of to fish for these same fish in September, and those haven’t traveled all over hell and back to get their natal stream. This is because west siders recognize these fish as "beat-up." For some reason this same attitude lacks over here. I assume this is because east-siders consider a steelhead a steelhead and don't care if it's dime bright or red and black???????????????? Anyway, have fun and may luck grant you a healthy fish as opposed to a weak, exhausted, frail bruin.


    Ya made a 17 yr old kid feel like a shithead for fishing then. A Father never forgets!
    Over now..........just remember the only one messing with you...is you.

    That's a beast for the Eastside, well done! :thumb:
