    Steve Call and I hit the Yak today. We walked the flood protection levee downstream from Hansen's for about a mile and a half. It was overcast and 52 the water was about 43. Some very light Skwala action (Steve saw more than I ) but the fishing was pretty good. When I left him Steve had caught four or five bows from 12" to bigger. I hooked and lost one big bow and landed three cuts between 17" and 18". Two on dies and one on a l_bug... The fish were definitely hitting on the top and looking for bugs in the first 10" of water.

    When I left Steve as headed back to the hole where I caught the cutts. Steve did you get some?

    Sounds like a great day. One of you should post some pics. :)

    My camera should be to the mouth of the Columbia by now. I dropped in weeks ago. I got one of Steve fishing (casting technically) on my phone - but even blown up he looks like a midge.

    One, but it was a big one.

    Great day Teedub!

    A lanyard around the neck does wonders for keeping your camera.

    It sucks to lose a camera to the skinny water.
