Oregon Coastal Bridge……

off to the side…

Rivers and streams sometimes, if flows allow, have little back channels of flowing water. Often these seem to be miniature variations of the main stem…little vignettes of currents, rocks & vegetation. We are often in a hurry to get to the bigger water to fish, swim, explore and step right on by these small worlds.

Fishing: Recycling your waders….

Saw this idea at Deneki Outdoors & Epic Angling where one takes your leaking (can’t salvage them) boot foot/stocking foot waders and cut off the neoprene boots. Now you have an industrial strength set of rain pants/bibs that while worn with rubber boots will out do any typical pair of bibs. Great idea. I have an old pair of Simms Guides that will soon fall into this category.

Montlake Cut in Seattle, Washington

This past week, while in Seattle, we took one of those two hour tours, which turned out safer than for the Gilligan Island crew. We traveled from Union Bay over to Lake Washington and back on a sunny, breezy day, taking in the sites. Part of that boat excursion was to travel along the Montlake Cut. I am posting a few photos of the outing and showing some old, historical photos via the very informative DorpatSherrardLomont historical site.
