Dam Counts..........

1/4 Million steelhead is that a lot of fish? (Bonneville Dam today)I guess I will have to take a drive and see if they want to play! Cool temps lots of showers maybe the powers that be will even let me build a campfire.
Truck is loaded, trailer is too, I am coming soon to river near you.
How about that Bobby Madritcsh?????
At least I will not have to curtail my fishing to drive to the nearest town for World Series and Playoff TV broadcast. I have installed a Sirius sattelite radio and will be able to "sponsor" the rest of the gang to hearing the series (NLCS ALCS and ) World, in real time with wood smoke and the back ground noise of the river of my choice.
I love Autum in the West even if it is wetter than anyone can remember, thats what cars and travel trailers are for.

Next week I will be seeing if atleast one of those quarter million steelhead can find their way to one of my flies...and decide to munch!

Also, I just picked up young Bobby M. on both my Fantasy Teams (one day too late on team)....the Oso Steelhead, if they can hold on to their slim lead this week will be playing fo the Championship. Sparkey's Steelhead lost their first round bye by 1/2 game (I fell from 2nd which I owned all year to 3rd the last day of the regular season) and ended up losing in the first round of the playoffs so its all about the consolation bracket now.

Go Bobby!

Rob, Becareful what you ask for- you could fish dirty water in BC or you might end up with one of those sponser coats in a bass boat; however I've seen a few fly fisherman that are just about as decorated as some those bass anglers.
