rapids on a small river…

hiking upriver, looking for holding water for returning Winter Steelhead in an Oregon coastal river.

Kiritimati in the morning…

fly fishers chasing bonefish & trevally walk to the boats to meet their guides and head out to the flats… A nice recollection, of late, when Winter keeps blowing Springtime into the distance.

Christmas Island (Kiritimati)

on the approach, flying in over the flats. This was from a trip in 2009, but I still marvel at the surreal experience on this tropical island.

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.

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.”
