Merry Christmas and more of course.
Wed Dec 27, 2017 6:21pm

Well Merry Belated Christmas to all. We had a very nice Christmas, white it was. Just a couple of inches total. Heck we didn't start opening presents until noon or after. pretty lazy day. Since none of us really needed much not much was given. Though I did get some fly tying materials to replace the materials that seemed to have misplaced over the years. It is perplexing the vises were in the boxes that had all the classified and marked feathers, body materials etc. Well I have the vises and no feathers. Had a box with threads sundry items and tools. Well I got the threads. Several of the small multi-drawer boxes that had all the hooks, misc tools plus more sundry items and they are missing. So I have vises and threads. And my books.... Oh I am missing my books.... Tough to tie anything with that stuff. lol Hence I am just a bit torqued off. So now I am trying to get any birds from guys that are hunting to skin and tan the skins. Also chickens for the skins. Heck $50 for part of a saddle, that would cost me a fortune to replace what is missing. Wow why did I go off on the fly stuff.

Anyway Christmas was nice. Val's B-day today. So more celebrating tonight, well as much as us old people do. So I guess whatever she brings home will be dinner. lol She wants to make her own cake tonight. She is crazy. lol But I still love her so.

Hey me, you see that Northern Pike have made it in your lake? There was a bounty on Northern heads since May this year and 1100 or right there abouts were turned in. I think that surpassed what the tribes and fish and wildlife expected. So the bounty continues thru 2018. They want try to stop the migration downstream below Grand Coulee. Well there are reports that Northerns have been caught at the mouth of the Okanogon. So now the salmon will be directly affected. Wasn't you guys that said you caught a mall one about 10 or so years ago in the arm or had talked with someone who caught one? I remember someone mentioning that they had or saw one that had been caught there in the arm while staying at porcupine campground. Catching 1100 fish and not knowing how many weren't turned in, there is a lot of fish. I'd say they are at least into wells pools and could be down into Lake Entiat. Probably in Banks too. Those little guys can survive amazing things like going though those pumps. Northerns fight good and eat well I guess. But I have never caught one. Maybe Don can give us some pointers on those wily buggers.

        snakes is almost a lost cause. They prefer shallower water than trout plus warmer water temps. The only fish that keeps them in check are Musky's. Northern's like to spawn in shallow streams as soon... more

          In the early spring when ice out occurs there is usually a very high runoff do to snow melt. But that is generally when the salmon smolt as moving downstream toward the ocean. So the rivers and... more

            are suckers in the rivers that will be most of their diet as they are slower and don't have dorsal fins on top. Get a fozen smelt and a Swedish hook, put on a set line after dark ....... this works.
            • Re: If there Hawg Haul'r, Tue Jan 2 7:18pm
              We do have suckers throughout the the river system. Smelt do run up the river but not past any dams. Huge shad runs which come into the river system to spawn. Some will pass the few of the lower... more

                  Oh that would be sweet, thanks Don. I have watched them on the fishing shows and read about them and they are toothy monsters. I don't want to keep any particularly, if I want to get a mount it would ... more

                    eating than a Northern. Flesh a little more firmer and sweeter. Tigers being a cross between the 2 are closer to a Musky in behavior and fighting ability. Never ate one but should be good.I,ve caught ... more
