Port Orford Report: I went fishing.

Yesterday I spent the day salmon fishing with my friend on the Elk River. I like fishing. Fishing has a way of fulfilling an age-old need of pursuing and catching. Well, In my case only pursuing. I've never caught a river salmon before, only on the ocean with a boat pulling and cute deckhands to land it for me.

The day started out badly. All ready to go and discovered my fishing license and salmon tags were missing. I drove quickly to the Liquor Store to get a replacement, but they would not replace my salmon tags except for a hatchery tag, denying me any wild fish.

We reached the first hole and fished for an hour; nothing. Hiked to the next one, wending through the trees to the bank. About 15 salmon were in the hole (you can actually see them) waiting for high tide when the river fills so they can escape. I tried a spinner and an anchovy but nothing until Wham! Fish on! It was a gorgeous fish. He jumped and jumped to try to shake the hook, displaying his beautiful bright chrome coloring. I guessed him to be about 20-25 lbs, not as big as I've seen but still impressive.

I fought that fish for 10 minutes. Everyone pulled their gear so my fish did not get tangled. He pulled an enormous amount of drag as he tried to escape down river. And for a while, he was successful. But soon he was near the bank, and I could see he was a hatchery fish and I could keep him! Heart pounding I steered him to the bank. Then came the hard part, jumping down the embankment to get him the rest of the way out out of the water. But it slipped away from me, shook off my hook and disappeared into the Wild Elk River.

I felt like crying. The other guys at the bank looked at me with a look that straddled between amusement and disgust. My friend yelled at me. Then I did cry.

Anyway, I went fishing yesterday.

Good Afternoon, George, Cath, Jeff, Doug, Perry, fishcigarguy & Helen! :)

77f this afternoon...not supposed to be this warm in November. :confused:

Headed out too early for breakfast this morning. Holdover 'til tomorrow some of that French toast and those donuts, Cath & George.

Helen, that's about the saddest fish tale I've heard. To be so close........:(

On to the rest of the day.......

Evening all, George hope your meet up comes off.
Helen, bummer on the fish thing, I need to get over there and fish at some point, tho I prefer to be on a boat to do it.
I need to run back to store for a few things I missed, not knowing Brady was coming for the weekend. Gotta run

Evening everyone.

Had a fantastic dinner with the core team downtown. Great food and company. Our new project manager is a diva, but in a fun way.

Watched some football with my buddy who was a QB at University of Miami, Ohio and a native Clevelander.

Really love this town and have friends on top of friends. It is like an episode of Anthony Bourdain every trip here exploring new food and new places.

Have a nice night.
