    Yesterday, a good friend and I smelled the sea, heard the breakers and fished hard for migratory fish in the "first pool." The sights and sounds were breathtaking and the answer is "no."

    Great mood and picture. Even though the answer is no, just being there is enough!

    Yeah fished that run hard for several days last week. No answer for me either. Although Mello caught a very nice bull right where you are standing.

    Had the same thoughts, in the same place, with the same results last week. Well done, Leland.

    Leland,
    A scene like that makes me want to leave my beaches for my annual journey filled with hope on sweet water.

    What feelings that brings out, Such beauty in a still picture and it would have been much more to have been standing there. Leland you've got the touch, or the eye.

    I was in the same spot (a little ways up from there) doing the same thing yesterday from about 11:30-2, then went upriver. I also caught a bull trout and nothing else. Were you in the little red truck with white canopy? I was in silver truck with MT plates.

    Well some of you need to keep it clean out there (you know who you are). I picked up some Rainier Beer cans off the river at the same time I seen a certain rig leave the bucket. So lets not let it look like the Sky or the Cowlitz out there. Nothing winds me up more than cleaning up after people.
