Well to say that I've had a stellar rainbow season thus far would be an understatement. And it's really just getting started. Lots of fresh fish since mid-September. All catches have been shiny and silver - healthy, hungry, wild fish - no observation of lampreys or lamprey damage. 
 
The key for me this season has been fresh, UNcured chinook eggs from a tributary to the river I'm fishing. Simply water-hardened, right off the skein eggs. There are days I've been on the river and no one around is catching so much as a cold and I'm hammering fish. 
 
Enjoy a few of the better pics ladies and gents. Hope to see some of you on the river, and CERTAINLY hope everyone has a great and fishy October!

definitely more rain needed, but these cooler temps are definitely bringing some fish in. starting to see fewer of the shakers and better numbers of fish with some size

Great job. Beauty fish. I prefer water hardened also. Plus the fact I'm to lazy for special cures.

ive always felt that fresh, river water cured eggs work best with nothing else added.

if you really think about it thats what the fish are eating and tuned in to.

only problem i had was i couldnt get them to keep well. cured eggs would keep but wont produce quite as many fish.

these days i just stick to beads and try to match the color im seeing in the water. works well enough ;)

 

good stuff bud, enjoying the pics.

thanks for sharing
