Catch and release shot from north shore, fall 1997…..

1997 was the golden year for Eagle Lake trout fishing! These pics are just a small sampling of what a great year it was. I caught in excess of 50 fish that fall with at least 15 of them in the 5 pound class or bigger!!!

Catch and release shot from Wildcat Point, fall 2000….

Aaron’s First Salmon

My fishin’ buddy Aaron with his first ever river caught salmon. She was a mint bright 20 pound hen caught in late October, 1997 at the mouth of Salt Creek on the Sacramento River below Red Bluff California.

Note: The lure still hanging from the fish’s mouth was an old T-55 flatfish with rusty hooks that Aaron found floating down the river an hour or so earlier. Some guys are just jerks!

Ernie’s Bone

Ernie and Sally recently took a vacation to Belize. Naturally they had to spend a little time chasing bonefish. Ernie actually caught a fish a good bit bigger than this one but the picture isn’t very good due to some gunk on the guide’s lense (yeah, I know, that’s what they all say)
