Thanks guys!

This time there was someone in another boat that was really nice and took quite a bit of time to help me get some nice pictures. I look like a kid at Christmas in most of them even though I thought I was smiling normally. I got his email so I will find out how to get him some beer or wine or whatever because it's just so nice to have.

I was so excited to finally cram him in the net. It's dark of course, but that's what being so far up river and the time of year will do. Still a powerhouse though holy crap! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Great pic and the smile does say it all, for sure you owe him some beer.  Did you keep the fish?  Are they still edible once they run up the river a bit?

Days before I went out I had been talking to people in the area about how the fish were and the fishing in general and folks were still really happy with how they tasted. They still fight like crazy, but once they're in it's really questionable as to whether they will recover well. Catch and release in this situation may be more of a kill and release. They are in what is still fairly warm river water and they are not fresh. Once he was in the net there was not a lot of movement so I quickly dispatched him. You know really, once they're spawning and that far up river they should probably be left alone.

After I had my one fish, I pulled anchor and came home. I'm plenty happy with the one :) I would rather fish for them fresh in the ocean of course, but this was an opportunity within reach.

I'll report back after I smoke some of it next weekend.

The smoked salmon turned out really nice. I had to stop people at work from eating all of it so that's a good sign.

It's a wide and slow trolling spoon.

I don't know exactly what F.S.T. stands for, but slow troll could be the S.T. part - not sure.

Hey Jeff,

The weather was pretty nice really, so long as you were in the river and not the main lake (Little Shuswap).

I used an egg creation I made up a little while ago and yes I was nymphing. To be honest, I was fishing like crap lol. The egg part isn't as clear as it is before it bounces on the rocks for awhile....

Dude! That is a wicked little fly man. Like a weighted bloodworm/egg pattern. Whats it called :) I like that. I am stealing it ;) haha. Would work well for a lot of stuff I fish. What size wire is that? and where are you getting the red colored wire? I have some body material that would look simialr but nothing weighted. Would have to weight underneath the material. Unless you are getting it from somewhere we have here. Give up the goods :)

Steal away :) It doesn't have a name. The wife called it an 'egg worm'.

The wire on it is enameled 22 gauge but if I was to get one size it would be the 24 gauge as it's a little smaller. I got the 22 at wholesale sports and the other I can't remember. I would go to any place that rewinds motors/armatures as they would have tons of it.

The hook in this case was a gamakatsu #6 octopus.
