Didn't catch any Salmon, but we did catch a lot of these...
Wednesday, left the cold and rain of Vancouver, dropped Willie off at cousin's. Headed up the Gorge in Nate, with my old front door, door frame, Black Rifle coffee, snacks, wine, and a box of DVDs (for BIL & SIL hunting cabin in Sparta).
Another BIL & SIL from NorCal were at the River House. So good to see them, I haven't seen them in quite a while.
Us girls stayed up late playing Sequence (with wine), and catching up.
Thursday morning, while the other girls slept in, I got up at O dark thirty with the guys to get on the river for the morning bite.

Guess I should explain that the river is only open for spring run (springer) salmon fishing every other day. The 5th, 7th, 9th, and 13th of May!
We had no luck with the salmon, but saw a couple of other boats haul in a few. It was a beautiful morning on the river, anyway.
Back to the river house to pick up the girls, then back to the river. Fished for a couple hours with sporadic bites, and a few walleye, and bass caught.
Friday morning, NorCal BIL & SIL left for the trip home to Cali.
We went back out walleye fishing and caught a bunch.
There is always something to see on the river.

Friday afternoon, drove back home, with a bag of walleye fillets to take to my Sean's on Sunday.
