    Is Rocky a German Shepherd? I used to have a GS/Mix and that was a great benefit...they don't love the water unless you train them to. Never had to deal with her fuckin up the fishing hole. I can't even begin to take my two Griffs fishing.

    Rocky is a rez mutt. Seems to be a German shepherd/aussie/heeler(?) Something mix. He's 5 months and 27lbs. My golden retriever is very interested in fucking up my fishing water but I have him trained fairly well. I had a German shepherd/wolf mix that was a perfect fishing dog because he would only get in the water a little bit and sit right behind me. Walter has the honor of falling out the boat twice getting too excited on the Missouri as we landed fish. I was smart enough to put a doggie pfd on him with a grab handle and pull him back into the boat as my buddy netted his fish...

    I'm curious how rocky is gonna adapt to the driftboat.(was gonna take him this weekend to Craig but we're supposed to get a bunch of snow).

    Took a trip back to Michigan to see my family. Been a while since I floated Eastern water. Big fun, spent the day on the Pere Marquette. Used to dodging rocks on the Green, different game missing trees and flipping casts instead of chucking across a river.

    I put in a long day on the river today, and with great results, I caught a grand slam plus! Almost five separate species!

    On the first cast of the day in the honey hole, I hooked up on a fierce Northern Pike Minnow! I hooked and lost four other fish there before moving on.

    Working up the confluence I caught my second fish and species of the day, a Mountain Whitefish which took a prince nymph.

    After a while I hooked into something big, a really strong fish, which took a while just to get into sight. At first glance I thought I had hooked a mammoth whitefish, but once I got it close, much to my surprise and delight, I saw that it was the third native species I had caught that day, and was a first for me, a powerful and heavy Largescale Sucker!

    So at this point, I was really hoping for a native grand slam, and the potential for it was certainly there, as I noticed fish rising further up the confluence, which meant there was likely some West Slope Cutthroat Trout. I switched from my nymph set up to a March Brown dry with a olive loopwing emerger trailer, which was unattractive to the rising fish. I discovered that the only fly box I'd left at home, was the one with my CDC baetis emergers, which I believe would have been crushed by the many rising fish. There were both March Browns and Blue Winged Olives floating past me, and the BWOs were getting gobbled. I tried a BWO Sparkle Dun, but got no interest, nor did a olive Caddis X. I decided to try out a green Crystal Caddis, as the body of it is pretty baetis looking. A good sized riser grabbed it, and with my lighting fast reflexes, I yanked it right out of his mouth. Eventually I got another taker, which made for a fourth species for the day, and at first, when I saw the gill slashes, I thought I'd got a fourth native species, but on closer inspection, it turned out to be a Cut-Bow. (the jaws of a WS Cutthroat extend past the eyes)

    On the way back to the truck, I caught another whitefish (which took a hare's ear so deep I had to reach down his gullet with forecepts to unhook him), and finally a Rainbow Trout, which kinda makes a fifth species, with a little overlap of the trout fishes. It had gone pretty well, and I hardly had any tantrums all day long!

    while floating and tubing, I've spotted some HUGE large-scale suckers in the Spokane River
    nobody I've talked to targets them or even knows anything about them ....

    nice fish!

    It's the first one I've caught. Hilariously, after mentioning it to a guy who I met down by the river, he tried to tell me they were not native fish. I said to him that I couldn't imagine anyone intentionally introducing them. He claimed they did so to use them as bait to ice fish for burbot. I didn't press him further, but thought to myself "So they introduced them so that they could try to catch them to cut into bait?"

    Incidentally, the Montana state record for Largescale sucker is 6.16 lbs (mine was probably less than 4 lbs), so next time I accidentally catch one, and if I happen to have a scale on me, I will certainly go for that title, because it's so musical sounding and all.

    Montana FWP says they are native in Western MT. That other dude is wrong.

    No suckers for me unfortunately. Did get rocky on his first float in a driftboat. I was kinda expecting to not fish much but I had him on a short leash and he did surprisingly well. Hell I even managed to catch a few. Hitting a different stretch 2moro. Ignore my ugly mug.

    Another beautiful day on the water. Watching my buddy fumble a big ol brown was pretty entertaining too.

    I've been out four times since my last post, including last Friday when I had accidentally locked my SD card, and couldn't figure out how to unlock it until I got home. I caught one whitey and one trout. Tuesday, I caught four whitefish on a spectacularly beautiful day. Wednesday, I fished for hours without any luck until I saw a pheasant fly across the river, which nudged me to switch to a flashback pheasant tail, the nymph that later caught the whitefish that saved me from going fishless. Today I caught another largescale sucker, a northern pike minnow, and three trout (one of which was a fat 15 incher). I'd still be out there probably, but my old ski shell became soaked through by bucketloads of rain (which stopped after I got home). Seeing as TRG won't let me post pics from my computer these days, you'll just have to use your imagination.

    Ok, must be this thread because I pulled a plump 18in long nose sucker outta the creek today. Along with some pretty browns. Camped out with some friends for their kids bday. The juxtaposition of the 6yr old bday boy taking big bites off a smoked duck carcass while the "pet" duck was waddling around with 5 dogs was pretty goddamned Montana. Here's some more shitty pics.. I should head up for closing day at the hill but I think I'm in fish mode now.

    Awesome day on River X.

    Got a text at 6am from Underoo’s personal Musky guide asking if I was up for a River X float in 2 hours. Hell yeah, I’m always ready to fish, plus the boat ramp is only 5 minutes from my house.

    Gotta follow the law, and Musky fishing is currently closed. The season starts end of May, and you cannot “target” Musky during this time. But it is open all year for catch & release Smallmouth Bass. This means no big rods in the boat. So we all just used our 8-weight rods today and left the big Musky gear at home.

    This was primarily a scouting trip for his guide business, and normally both the Musky and Smallmouth are still way downstream this time of year. But with the mild winter, he wanted to do a trip early. He is very scientific, and took water temp readings periodically and noted them for future reference. What we found was no fish. It looks like both the Musky and Smallmouth have not come up here yet. Oh well, it was a beautiful day on the river. Good shakedown trip, all 3 of us shared time on the oars, all 3 cast a variety of rods and flies, and all 3 of us spent significant periods of time just drifting along downstream chatting away and getting caught up on what we had been doing all winter. Fun day with friends.

    I would post pics, but the box fan seems to be having issues.

    I went fishing, I caught a trout. A couple came off the hook. I wrote it up, but I got a error code. This is a test.

    Sweet. I will put them to good use.

    The year round catch & release for Smallmouth is a new rule on River X, and I think it matches the reality that “fishing” is changing from your grandpa catching a bucket of fish for dinner to flat-brimmed bros taking pics and throwing them back. Nice to see the DNR changing the rules to match the reality on the river.
