|Dave's Chromer Guide: Mike|
What a beautiful week on the peninsula. One day we literally floated past 2 walk-in guys that both had there shirts off. I'm not that hard up for a tan. Looks like a lot of rain is on it's way though. There seams to be a decent amount of fish in the rivers. Fishing was great to good last week. Dianne was the quickest to ever get a hook up. I threw some line out and handed her the rod and before I could show her how to cast she yelps with "I think there is something on". She ended up landing a nice little 6 lb. hen.
We had one slow day on one of the busier weekend days on a float I normally don't do. I had one of the guys out the day before so we wanted to hit something different. We had one good pull but it didn't stick. The first trip this year we didn't get fish out there :(
The biggest fish we hooked this week broke Tim off in a little tree snag. There was literally nothing around for a few hundred yards except for this little damn snag on our shore and the fish screamed off into his backing and on his 2nd run made a b-line straight to it. I was standing fairly close to it when the fish hung up on it, the slab made a few splashes and rolls, then broke him of before I could do anything about it. Man what a hot fish!... heart breaker.

On the float on the Hoh above Oxbow there is also trees across the river.
Looking forward: I am booking Methow trout trips in late July/early August and Pink salmon trips will start on Aug 15th and go till October.
