    Fished Minter below the overpass today on afternoon outgoing tide. The river is still extremely high and dosnt drop down nearly as much as usual. I tried for two hours with bobber and jig.Not one take down,even with tons of fish swiming right by my rig. I switched to yarn eggs with garlic scent and killed em with that.

    Fished Minter today on the afternoon outgoing tide.The river is finally droping back in shape but is still dark and dirty. Tried drifting yarn eggs with garlic scent just bellow the overpass but it was very crowded and totaly amature hour there ,nothing but snaggers and tangled lines. I went down streem and did quite well.Still good numbers of fairly bright fish.I will start fishing the mooring incoming tide from now on.Water should clear up enough to use bobber and jig soon.

    Fished Minter this a.m on incoming tide. Lots of fish,lots of realy bad fishermen!I bypased all the upper holes below the overpass and went down streem arraound the bend. Good fishing there, used sented red yarn then switched to a pearl headed jig with chreise maarrabou and did well with that also.If you are going to fish the upper holes leave your good pole at home.I saw three broken ones on my way out.This isnt combat fishing it is just a snagging frenzy with no respect for other peoples gear!

    Caught two bright hens, let go some bucks and as usual several foul hooked fish. Below the bridge as near the salt as I can get. It's slippery put there watched 3 guys slop and fall and one fell into the water luckily it's only ankle deep. Be careful
  7. Did the Minter creek thing today. Took home 4 semi bright fish 2 hens and 2 bucks. They will be good smoked. Saw many fish caught legal and foul hooked. I had a total of 2 hours or so to get my limit. There are a lot of dark ones and a few bright ones mixed in. I'll hit it earlier next year if I ever go back. 3 gamies made their presense known. Everyone was respectful of each other. All in all it was a fun day.

    Fished Minter this morning on the last part of the outgoing tide and first three hours of the incoming tide. The incoming tide was more productive by far. Tried using bobber and jig but got very few take downs. Switched to drifting a smal red fly pattern up by the bridge and did well with that until the bight went off. Hardly any fresh bright fish comming in now and a lot of zombies. The run is definately petering out mabey another week or so of ok fishing.

    There are NO chrome fish left. They hardly fight and there's no challenge.
