Fished yesterday afternoon for a couple of hours. First went down to the pilings and saw a couple of rollers but nothing biting.
Then went up to the runs below the Island and hooked into a monster 8" rainbow.....! Saw a couple of rollers and splashers but no action. I was chucking coho spoons and Blue Fox spinner.

There were only myself and another guy below the Island and for a long distance down the canal. Quite serene to say the least. There is a large holding pond established there for the coho to stage in. Should be interested as the week develops the runs. Going out again this afternoon.

No its actually the fact that its a big deep hole that all the fish just comming in stack up in and are easy too snag......No iam not saying everyone that fishes kwb snags but a large percentage do.In my opinion the spot should be closed down.

I enjoy float fishing that area, and tried fly fishing, but gave up after a few casts, as my casting sucks and continue to sucks.

Just stay away from the meat holes as there is ample room to fish around that area. By the way, note of caution, do not park near the gates on the west side of the Canal.

There are a few break ins that occurs around the area each year, including my car last year.

I know park my car up around the dikes or if there is room, at the parking lot underneath the Canal bridge.

If you have time, practice fly casting in a park...not on the water! Nothing wrong with float fishing though... :thumbup:
Why not practice under real conditions with the chance of catching fish? Is this a contest to see who looks best or a fun pastime?

I agree. Forget the backyard. Find a quite spot and try your cast. Cast in the water. But again you need to find a quite spot where you have enough space for mistakes. And if you don't find a nice spot, then look at other people, observe others, look at the water and try to learn what fishermen do and how they catch fish. Fishing and learning are on the river, not on a soccer field.

Why not learn to perfect your cast in the evenings Guiseppe? Have you ever taken a flycasting course? They usually start you off in a park, then move to the water for some hands on. Same with casting a bar weight with a mooching reel if you've never done it before. Would you rather spend hours on the river picking out huge backlashes because you didn't practise beforehand? :2cents:

Contest? Not at all. IMHO it's better to practice (if you have the time) in a park to avoid any frustration on the water (e.g. tangled leaders, spooking fish with sloppy casts, etc.). I'd recommend the same for people who are new at using baitcasters. Following the same logic, you can pre-tie leaders before you hit the water. Do the prep and it will pay off. And, btw - I enjoy taking my fly rods out and casting in a park once in a while. Just my 50 cents worth for maximizing your fishing time. ;)
