I cannot believe what happened today. Started off around noon and as the sun was starting to go down I called it a day having landed about 6 chum. However, the good fishing was hardly what made today so crazy. After hitting the road I was about halfway home on highway 18 and realized my rod wasn't with me... The last thing I remembered was leaning it against the truck and then it hit me. I drove off and left my nicest setup, a Loomis 1263c/Calcutta D combo, lying in the parking lot back at Metzler park. At this point I had just about $#!% my pants and immediately headed back to the park. After what seemed like forever I finally arrived and it was pretty dark. I couldn't find my rod but after looking around for a bit I noticed a piece of paper on a dead chum carcass someone had left there. It read, "I have your fishing rod. If you want it back call with the rod and reel you had." At that point a huge weight had been lifted off my back and I called the guy back and in 10 minutes him and his buddy were there with my rod. I couldn't believe how much I lucked out having two people find the rod who were genuine enough to find its owner, as they could have easily made off without a hitch. After they left I regretted not giving them something to show my appreciation like $20 to grab a bite on the way home or something. People are amazing and I'll be forever thankful of those two gentlemen!!!!

Report for November 22, 2014


Fished the green at Metzler Drift all morning. Hooked up on a couple of chum using bobber/dark purple jig. Had a piece to table shrimp hooked on it as well. Tried eggs/shrimp/ and jigs+shrimp. Not many bites all morning for the whole bank.

I met a younger guy Garret (?) with his uncle - also floating pink jigs and occasionally drift fishing. He was pretty good and landed about 5-6 chum while the rest of the river had 5-6 total. They left early for lunch and didnt see them again- although they were coming back for more!

I ended the day around noon with just 3-4 hookups and most were quick pull and spit out...Nothing landed. Too bad- the rain was starting to weigh down and my damp clothes didnt help.

Most people had luck with about 4 ft leaders under their bobber and almost EVERYONE was tipping their hooks with shrimp. Going to try some sand shrimp tomorrow or cured shirmp at least. I tried drift fishing with shrimp and pink/pink corky & yarn but no bites. Felt a few bumps so at least they were down there. They sure were rollin... just no biting.

Tomorrow is a new day!! and as a weekend warrior, i have no choice but to wake up early and catch me some chum again tomorrow!

Going to the exact same spot tomorrow to test my luck (this was my first time here and i heard they were killing it Friday -- yesterday) .... but for some reason, that's what i hear a lot from people nowadays - "it was great yesterday, slow today". haha

Best,
Linh

Got to the river really early, good action right away for the next hour. It slowed down around 8:00am, I was targeting Chum, no problem catching those, hooked about 8 fish, kept two. But the highlight of the day was when I hooked into this little Steelhead!! my first one ever, it was good eating.

I took my 17 year old to the Green River Saturday Morning, arrived at 7 AM, about 28 degrees. Got to my chosen spot and it had 15 fishermen in one small hole. We left and went upriver. On his second cast, my kid caught a 10+ lb Chum - his first Salmon. He was amazed at how strong a big fish is. He caught a dark Silver and then a really ugly Chum at 10+ lbs but it fought hard. I caught nothing. Fished 4 hours. saw about 25 fishermen and about 6 of those caught fish.

Fished the upper portions of the river. Float fished with a pink corky and a piece of purple and black yarn, above the corky I had a small bead and above that I used an egg weight instead of using split shots. This method is kind of a improvised jig that's very effective (and cheap) Yes I was using tiger prawns on the tip of the hook.

Most of my hookup were on a #2 hook. I ended up bringing in 8 fish including one metal head. All fish were released except two chum for the smoker as I'm planning on giving a lot of smoke salmon for xmas gifts. All of these fish were caught very close to shore which made them fairly easy to bring in.

Three day report, 10/10-10/12. Got to the river around 7:30 Monday morning, was a little disappointed that the river was so high after having no rain, but I guess the dam has been dumping water. Went up and down river from the golf course to Metzler park, trying to find a willing biter with no luck until 1:00pm right before I gave up got a 28" Male that was in decent shape.
Tuesday was a much better day even thou the water level stayed high, but I must have ran into a big school coming through because I hooked into 6 fish, was done by 9:00am with 2 nice hens and 1 male, the other three I lost before I was able to bring them to shore. I was glad to go home because it was freezing and the high winds didn't help.
Wednesday, got there @ 7:30am and was it cold? wow, the guides on my rod were freezing constantly. It didn't take long however, for the first one to bite, shook me up a little and took off, reload, 5 minutes later, another one, same story, lost it. I ended up keeping 2 one hen and the beast on the pic, I broke my jig trying to get it out of this guy's mouth.

Any way, over all a great week other than the freezing weather, and wind. But next week should be great, no rain and the river levels should go back to normal.

Went to check out the river levels and discovered the dam dumped a bunch of water last night so river is quite high now. Decided to check out a hole I have been wanted to try. Second cast had one jump over my bobber and not bite, tried floating down near the bank and hooked big chum, probably 15lbs at least. High bank and no net made it real challenge to land. It was a male and didn't look to good so turned it loose. I tried to take a pic but camera battery had died so no pic this time.

Had a great day! Went out fishing this afternoon with my dad and once the ordeal of getting to our spot was done we found some fish. Started off with a couple fish right away but then it died down a bit. Switched spots a half hour later and found a great seam full of fish. All in all had about 8 hookups on the day and landed 5. Love having such a fun fishery so close to home.
