That said, the river has a lot of fish in it. I went out for an early morning cast this morning and parked one of our custom 20ft 'silver salmon' jon boats in Broken Rubber. There were fish flicking everywhere, and after a few minutes I ventures up to Air Force and it was full of fish. Large, small, and in between could be seen jumping, and porpoising everywhere and it wasn't long before I had played 3 and headed back to the lodge for breakfast.
One of our greatest privileges operating a salmon lodge in such a bountiful place, is we get to see a lot of fish time anglers get their first fish. Yesterday I was out with two of my own kids in the bay trout fishing and my son, who's 5, for the first time used an opennfaced adult spincasting rod and hooked into a nice trout on his first cast! The excitement was contagious even though he lost it. The same thing happened here last week when Blake (pictured here), aged 8, hooked and landed his first ever! Congrats, Blake, it's a beautiful fish!!
