Hunting 2014

 

 

IMG_3192

Hunting for myself started out with some Timber Chickens.

Notice the one in the center is a Blue.

 

IMG_3299

It was good to be back in the woods.

IMG_3204

Got a chance to take my youngest boy Brandon seen here shooting the Ten-Twenty two.

IMG_3217

On the way up to Elk Camp I ran into a old friend that just dragged out a Bear.

Way to go J-Bird!

IMG_3218

Shane I were the first two to arrive in Camp.

We were lucky enough to get the tarp up before the rain hit.

IMG_3221

Ribeye and Rice made it all good!

IMG_3259

Brother in laws were next to show.

This picture was taken the day before the start of our hunt.

IMG_3261

It may not look like it but we had a sweet camp.

The green tarp was to protect the kitchen area.

This is a few days into the hunt.

Poor Shane was plain tuckered out.

Tiny in the background. He came up with his boy Matt.Sorry no pictures of Matt

IMG_3338

I brought the Clack up in hopes of taking some time and fish.

But no Elk so I hunted the whole time and didn’t fish but helped haul some gear and made things much easier for me.

Back home we had a coupe of weeks left of deer season.

IMG_3349

 

Jason got this awesome 4 point Blacktail out on the folks place.

IMG_3432IMG_3400IMG_3409Don Howard got this Big Buck just out of Roseburg.

It was in full rut and looking for Does in all the wrong places.

IMG_3438IMG_3441

Here is my Buck for 2014. Got it on the same place Jason did just on a different part of property.

Winter Steelhead and Friends 2014

IMG_2290

Winter Steelhead started late for us due to Trade shows and Flu bugs but we finally got out in March. This Buck came off the North Umpqua and fell to a yarn ball and row.

IMG_2155

Shane hooked this one on a double beaded jig.

IMG_2159

IMG_2162

IMG_2041

We did some bank fishing too.

IMG_2262

We spent a couple days up at the River Vista Vacation Homes up the North Umpqua. The fishing was fair to moderate. Nobody around and we had the river mostly to ourselves. River Vista is Hawg Quests home away from home…..

IMG_2248

Not a lot of Hatchery fish on the North Umpqua Winter run so they all go back. I did manage a fin clip fish. The only fish I have tagged this year so far.

IMG_2171

Don Howard cooking Elk Steaks on the rivers edge.

IMG_2119

These days I like to take a jig rod along when we go side drifting. There are a lot of fishing spots that jigs fish great when drift fishing doesn’t work so well.

IMG_2195

This big hen fell to a yarn ball. To be honest Shane caught this fish and I held it up so to get it back in the H2O as fast as we could. I felt this hen went in the high teens. The picture doesn’t do it justice.

IMG_2208

Here is Shane with another nice fish that fell to the yarn.

Steelhead Fever!

IMG_0330 

After a long Summer and long into Fall I’m ready for some Winter Steelhead!

This one fell to a jig last year.

IMG_0280IMG_0284

This one, I saw a piece of water I liked so I pulled the clack to the bank and walked up to find this nice late season Head. I pass up a lot of good looking spots because the boat can’t get to it or it’s not in the main drift. Getting out and walking to it can pay off. Having a Clackacraft does helps me get to spots Metal boats just can’t get me too.

What is Tyee Fishing?

Painter’s Lodge offers traditional tyee fishing from classic rowboats in the Tyee Pools. Anglers who catch a Tyee become members of the Tyee Club of British Columbia. It is open to any anglers who want to test their skill at sport fishing. The rower will slip the boat into the currents and eddies of the pool, allowing the angler to stay focused on the action of the lure. Any change in the beat of the rod tip will signify a strike. It is then up to the angler to set the hook and battle the powerful Chinook to the boat – single-handedly. If the fish is successfully boated and weighs over 30 lbs., the catch is recorded and the angler has earned a membership in the Tyee Club.

The Birth Of The Tyee Club

Painter's Lodge Tyee salmon fishing

In 1924, three men were socializing in the local hotel. They decided that the Tyee salmon was just as great as the California Tuna and therefore deserved a club to celebrate, honour and protect the legendary species. The Tyee Club was officially created in 1925 with the formation of a set of rules. It has evolved to include the following objectives:

  • fostering the interest in Canada’s Chinook salmon,
  • emphasizing the ideals of sportsmanship, and
  • standardizing fishing tackle, encouraging young people into the craft of guiding and good sportsmanship.

Great day at Buoy Ten

IMG_1312  IMG_1306IMG_1317IMG_1321IMG_1314

What a day with Reel Time fishing and guide Toby Wyatt out at Buoy Ten August 20th. The bite good to red hot at times and if not for barbless hooks we would have had a box full. We did manage a few bright Kings and I kept a nice Coho.

Bonner Daniels gets the Chrome!

IMG_1107

Bonner Daniels and Calvin Sampson with a pair of Skykomish Kings.

Yes that is a rescue truck in the background.

A driftboat sank with three guys in it.

Everyone is OK and safe but a little cold and wet for their trouble.

Success in Sitka

IMG_5985

Best bite we have ever seen for Kings while Mooching herring. Only allowed one king per year for non-res. So as it always happens we get the biggest king after we tagged out. It was in the 40lb club. You’ll have to wait and see it when the show comes out. Between four of us we brought home 400 lbs of fresh fish!.   Thanks Reel Class Charters
