Closing day coho on the carbon

Beautiful day for fishing. Cloudy with a little sun, no wind, and fish all over the place. Landed a nice coho, and a dolly, both on spinners....

Have yet to land, or see anyone land a fish on float and eggs in a long time, but i hear reports of it. Not sure if the water is too stained, or running too fast, but i thought it was perfect today, and just didn't have any takers till i switched to spinners.

Any tips?

Skunked on the carbon

Decided to give it a run today to test some things out. The river was really fast, and the only fish i saw landed was with the long leader and corkie.

Seems if the hydrograph shows over 7.5 ft, the possibilities of finding water slow enough for floats and eggs is very low. I tried bouncing eggs with a short leader in order to slow my presentation down with the water being as fast as it was; but no luck!

Fishing pole holder for bike

Already good reports form the carbon. A couple kings, and coho.

One problem I've had with fishing the carbon is the limited parking which means I do a lot of walking. Especially with my two boy coming with me, I end up carrying a lot. 

Solution: I put a simple bike carrier rack on my bike, and attached a couple pole holders. This way i can be totally rigged up before getting to the river, and get the spots quickly.
