Rolling along…

Normally, along this stretch of river the submerged shelf here is elevated enough that there are rapids here that cascade over the shelf falling about a foot or so. The water is up now at Winter flows. The pool remains, if deeper, and the Steelhead will still hold here before pushing up into the tail of the drift above.

Rising waters….

Probably within 48 hours the trunks of those leaning trees will once again be submerged as a water laden storm front moves into the Oregon coast from the Pacific ocean. Melting snow in the coast range and heavy rain will at least double the depth of this river that I was fishing in yesterday. Hoping the damages will be minimal (this happens several times a Fall/Winter) and that it will push Winter Steelhead out of the Pacific into the coastal rivers. I will be returning once the waters recede.

cold morning, coastal river…

first light, too cold to rush out to the edge of the river to wet a line. Have I become a fair weather fisherman? Slow but sure as the points of pain have accumulated, the mind/body seems ever more hesitant to stumble about in sub 30 F temps (0 C)

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
