Fished for walleye on Saturday, caught one about 5#. The better story is the water is 68', nice and cool. Not many salmon around yet, but if the water stays cool, it will be good fishing when the arrive in the next week or so!

Sounds like fun !

Always wanted to try try both of those fisheries ! I’ve seen some nice fish caught over near there when we’ve been hunting and chasing birds in the early upland season.

Hope it gets good for ya’s !

Bring your boat! Lots of chukars (and rattlesnakes!) on the south side of the river across from the Jackson Creek fish camp.

Thanks for the invite !

Not sure my 17 foot Smokercraft Lodge would be adequate on the big river when windy. Although it is tempting, and not far from where we stay near Beverly /Matawa when we chase birds ? Although with the new 60 hp replacing the old 40 hp outboard, it does get off the water quickly in an emergency ! ;)

It will be fine in the Vernita area. I fished out of a 16' for years there with a 35 on it. A word of caution is not to run up or down too close to shore, many finger bars stick out into the river and some days it could be low water. Hard to see when running.

Well, it was a pretty good season over there. Sled motor died part way through (still waiting for it to be completed). Ready for winter walleye and trout (up at Rufus).

Did you say Trout ?

As my Grouse Hunting,Chasing begins to slow down This winter with all this wet stuff falling, my mind keeps going back to the Trout fishing that should be starting up here reel soon !

Time to clean out all the fall salmon gear from the skiff, and locate all my flatfish and baby pink hootchy gear( now where’s that dang spell checker ? )

Cheers !

The river is clearing up at Vernita. 4-6 foot visibility now. Tried for walleye off the bank (boat is broken down) Brother caught one on Friday, pretty slow!
