There have been plenty of fresh fish, and some beautiful maxi grilse coming in. Also still a few 10-12lb salmon hooked by this group. CPUE for the outgoing group is 4.53. No complaints on that average! Happy guests!
Navigation, now, is one of our biggest challenges. Lots of wading, even
Our 20ft jon boats which have teflon skids and draw just a few inches of water cannot get in past govnors! There are places where the fishing has been good though. Our time in Pratts and Govnors has been valued. Govnors now means standing to your knees in water at the bottom of outside govnor's and fishing the water below. The Bathtub has been great, and the guides have been finding fish in new holes down around Sandbar. I say around Sandbar, because sandbar itself is now practically dry.
It is hard to predict now, what will happen going forward. The tides are slacking which generally means less fresh fish, although yesterday was great! The weather shows chances of showers, which isn't going to change the condition of the river unless it turns into significant rainfall. We welcome a new group today, they will find out what in store soon enough. We will do our part on shore and in guiding to make their trip as successful as possible! One thing for sure, we will be taking lots of pictures of the river as it continues to go lower. Couple of pictures this week. One of John and daughter Lauren with a double header in 'The Bathtub'. Great shot! Also, fishing at govnors, that you would rarely see like this...
