Some days you can't beat them off your line with a stick, other days they're nowhere to be found. Went out to the Walla Walla river last night, about 3/4 mile up from where the Walla Walla meets the Columbia. Tried chicken livers, nightcrawlers, with a few little nibbles here and there. Tried circle hooks, j-hooks, bottom rigs, slip-bobber rigs, nothing seemed to work. However, I met up by chance with Treasure and we converted another camper to the flock. Must have spent four or five hours sitting on the bank just shooting the breeze and not catching anything. Nobody else around was either though, and sometimes that's just how it all works. It was like night and day from my previous day's fishing, but it was a beautiful starry night with good conversation so it was very good fishing in it's own right. The day before I went out to the Snake River and floated chicken livers under a slip-bobber in an inlet to a nice little bay. I caught 2 channels in the 5 lb range, and a few smaller ones. I probably missed 5 or 6 more, all in about an hour and a half period. It sure was fun watching that bobber bob and weave around in the water, there must have been a swarm of kitties around there. Ran across a rattlesnake too. I spent a few years in an area where there's lots of snakes, but I forgot how much they can make you jump when they get to buzzin'. All in all, good times.
