There was also success with actually catching fish. On our summer trout outings I averaged about seven fish played fish per trip. Of those I kept four, three were hooked in ways that would have killed them. One just flat out looked to tasty to let go. Late in the spring run I managed a clipped chinook jack that didn't need to be tagged. I landed a beautiful native coho hen in late October but the quota had already been hit for the Wilson so off she went. Through November and December I released a few boot black nooks.
For this year Littlefisher and I both have tags. With all the experience from last year, I look forward to us both enjoying our time together on the water. We might even get some ink!
