My boss gave me the morning off, so I went to my local favorite, Thomas. Not as early of a start as I wanted, but I don’t think it would have mattered. A nice gentleman at the river had been there since first light and had not seen a fish. He informed me that he had caught about 20 Coho with eggs under a bobber in the previous two weeks, but none today. I really enjoyed my conversation with Mao and some other dudes that arrived later. River fishing sure can change in a week. There were Coho providing aerial performances last week and we had a low tide in the AM. There was barely any current and guys were crossing the river. This week we had a high tide, the river was moving pretty good and I saw one fish jump. My artillery was eggs, dick nite (50/50, frogger), red vibrax #6, jig under bobber. I wanted to put some time in with my bait casting reel, but had to mount it on my ugly stick after breaking a graphite rod last week. At 9:00am, I almost left, but a very nice Coho launched right in front of my face and tempted me back. No fish caught, but I did dredge up two dick nites, a bobber and egg setup and had some great conversations with visiting fishermen.

Went to TE this morning - first one there. Fished until 9:00 and didn't see a single fish roll. Not a fish or even a bite. Been killing it with drifting eggs but nothing. Tried a dick nite for a while and nothing. However. I did watch a guy straight across from me in a pram anchored up at the tail end of where all the guys were standing in the middle of the river during low water. He landed 6 silvers while I was there. (assume he released a few of those). I've run into that before where fresh moving fish won't show themselves but I was fishing the same exact slot he was where the fish run through when moving. Nada. First time since I started fishing TE regularly 10 yrs ago that I've been outfished there. Humbling! Couldn't tell what he was using cause it was foggy.
