‘Things’ changed…

I recall fishing with older gents years ago. Often, I would see them taking breaks, leaving the water, be it a lake or river, to sit and stare. The conditions weren’t particularly harsh. Why were they not fishing at the optimum times?! I would power on hour after hour, catching fish and shaking my head to the fun the older gents were missing.

Those gents are long gone now. Moved on to quieter waters. These days, things have changed. I don’t fish nearly as much. When I do, I put in a half hour or so and then find a place to sit. I smoke my briar, stare at the water, maybe take some photos. My mind is not as energized to fish for hours on end. I am now one of those older gents. Things changed along the way and the urgency isn’t there. I surely enjoy the outdoors, the waters, the imagining of fish and habitat. Yet, a break along the shore is now as good as the throwing a line for hours on end. Now I see.

Stream survey for salmon…

A stroll up Crystal Springs, in Portland, looking for signs of Coho Salmon spawning…usually spawned out/dead fish or possibly still on the redd. Crystal Springs comes out of a hillside up by my house, runs into a man made lake (Reed Lake) and the continues out for a few miles to Johnson Creek, which dumps into the larger Willamette River, a major tributary of the mighty Columbia River. Efforts have been ongoing for several years to improve habitat along the stream for returning Coho. In our region, Coho are also called Silvers.

Party’s Over…

time to cut stuff back a bit, wait on the remaining leaves to fall, put away the yard furniture and yard art. Make sure the hummingbird feeders are placed where I can see them through the Winter and get out fishing more!
