I don't really know how to explain this one. I spent 9 hours on baitless/barbless hook waters today. Along the way, on the far side of the river away from the road side, I run into a freakin pile of gear about 1 foot underwater.

Pictured above are some of the contents of that pile. Not all. I had to fish out a half a dozen large sinkers as well.

Their placement was real odd. Like someone had just dropped them there. That didn't make much sense though. Who drops all their gear and walks off?

Somebody....

Buncha junk.

Lots of barbs too....

Geez! If you want to see junk and garbage, just visit the confluence of the Middle and North Fork of the Snoqualmie, by Rosebud River Ranch. There was so many piles of trash left behind that it would have taken many several garbage bags and multiple trips there and back to the road to move it all. There was a nasty note at the trail head, probably left by one of the party-goers to the rest of the gang, bitching about the mess they left and how he/she could only drag out so much.

I will bring a garbage bag or two with me, the next time I go fishing a river. I've never seen any trash before when visiting that spot in the past, so I was totally unprepared for what I encountered and feel bad that I didn't have the means to anything about the mess. Not next time, I'm telling you. WTF...

"I buy I new pair of needle nose pliers about every 2 weeks, where the hell do those things go?"

A quote from my non fisherman dad that my brother and I heard an untold number of times when we were in junior high and high school.

Little did he know they were all at the bottom of Myron lake, the Tieton River, Mud Lake, The Naches River, Leech Lake, I-82 ponds, Wenas Lake, Bear Lake, Ahtanum Creek, Manastash Lake, the Toppenish Gravel Pit Ponds etc etc etc...
