  1. Crazy. It is amazing how much that canal affects watersheds in the area. One of the few places with bridges that flow a river over another river. What do they do now, continue to spend millions repairing levees or spend multi-million returning it to a semi-natural state.
  2. The swim bait with a scrounger head has been in my arsenal for quite sometime, seems to be a little better than the chatter bait IMO.
  3. I think it presents the bait in a much more natural way. I find it more enjoyable as well.
  4. I use both, but the fly rod sees a lot more action these days.
  5. Egg patterns and wooly buggers are what I have the most success with.
  6. Kings are dead by now. There will be steelhead and browns in the river all winter though. If you want kings, it seems early to mid September may be prime time. I much prefer catching the big browns and steelhead to salmon.
  7. Sneaky Pete for me. I always err on the larger size
  8. Take him somewhere where he can skip stones, catch frogs, splash around in a small stream and hopefully catch some fish. Do your best to keep him interested!
  9. I am glad you didn't listen! I'd take that as a life lesson, my wife reminds me all the time when she is "right".
  10. Old red is still alive and well. I've put enough river miles on it that it was in need of skid plates. I put these on about a month ago. Please ignore the clutter in my garage, it's a work in progress and haven't even finished unpacking since the move. Before photo. I cleaned up the areas that had worn through the outer layer of royalex and filled with two part epoxy
  11. Look at the tailings pond at the top portion of the screen. It dwarfs the city of Galatia.
  12. Thanks for sharing. It is a disgrace that this kind of thing was allowed to happen. Illinois is littered with examples like this, and often times the company responsible is long gone, leaving the mess to taxpayers.
