Hit the River at around 7 am today, fair amount of people out so my new fishing buddy Roy and I did a bit of wandering looking for fishy water away from the usual crowds. After a cast and walk routine for a while, we came up on nice looking piece of water and 2 casts in Roy is into his first Coho of the day on a blade. Really nice hatchery fish, about 7-8 lbs. Bonked that one and thought he had it looked after, hung it on a branch that was sticking out of the water, looked real solid..... Went back to fishing and about 5 min later noticed that his fish wasn't there anymore. ??? Dammit...... Oh well, back to fishing and and it wasn't long before he was into his second. Landed that one, also a Hatchery. This time we took the proper precautions and this fish was safe. ;D
Now it was my turn, wasn't getting anything on roe or blades, so I switched up to a tiny piece of wool and roe scent, first cast, Coho on, landed that one, a nice little hatchery. Then it got crazy for a bit, between three of in in the run, we were into probably 8 coho in the next 20 min, I lost 2 more bigger Ho's.... ::) ;D Roy hit a dry spell and the other guy fishing roe in the run just below us was into probably 6, landing 3 of them 2 being hatchery and the other a nice wild.
Then Roy got his first Chum of the year and I lost another headshaking beast after a couple seconds. At around noon, the action died right off. So me moved on to find some more water with a bit better cover. After some more wandering around, we came up to a nice run that had no one at it, nothing there just yet though, so we wandered up and down river from there for a bit finding nothing. We decided to head back to where we we first off, and within a couple casts Roy is into another real nice Coho on the blade again. This one we get landed, another hatchery of around 10 lbs. 2 casts later as I am tying on a blade, he is onto another one of about the same size, but losses it only to find out the hook came off the colorado. :p It slowed a bit after that for a while, we couldn't quite figure out why it had turned off so quick, then we see a bunch of Springs coming and know why. With no more Coho wanting to play we decide to see if we can play with some Spring, a couple sore arms later, I was able to land and Bonk and nice 23-25 lber and lose 4 others, Roy lost I think 3 or so and we decided to call it a day. Was a fun day out with some great company, lots of nice fish and some peace and quiet on the river. It is nice to not have to deal with the gong show every once and a while. ;D

Sounds like you had a great day Dave ......... CONGRATS. Got out after having Birthday Brunch @ 11:00 AM. Threw some spoons @ the mouth of the vedder. Then settled in for some Sturgeon fishing. Couple of small ones ...... unfortunately nothing to write home about.

Now that's a great day! See what happens when you explore? Dave, were you fishing the blades under a float? geez I gotta make it down there this week to get in on some of this action. The coho action, from what I have been reading anyways, appears to be so much better this year than last.

Yeah, I would have to agree. Yesterday and today, I have already been into more Coho than I had all of last year. Yeah we were fishing Colorados under floats. Was back out this morning, a bit of a late start though. Made it to the river at about 8:30 and hit my first coho of the day on my second cast and that started off a crazy morning. During the morning up till about noon I was into 14 Coho landing 8 of them. Also got my first 2 Coho out of the Vedder on Spoons!! :happy: That was a blast. Then I lost my Lucky Spoon to a sunken treasure and that was it for the day. :p It was a blast plucking Coho out of the canal in between all the long liners and have them saying, " I wish I could catch a Coho, all I am getting are these rotten Chum...."
;D So I showed a couple of them the Croc I was using and hopefully some of them will go get a couple and try it out. The First 6 landed were on roe, couldn't get them to hit blades out of the first run. The biggest of the day was about 9 lbs and 6 of the 8 were wilds, both the Coho that hammered the Spoons were wild. Haven't had a day for Coho like that it a while, only bad part is that I have to wait for the weekend to make it out again.
Would have had pics, but well.... left the camera in my fishing buddies truck yesterday.

Anyhow, here are some pics from yesterday.
