    Limited out yesterday on vibrex. They must have had a good push yesterday because I was done and off the water in 3 hours. Just out of curiosity is it just me or has the silver run as a whole really gone down hill in the last 3 years? Heck I haven’t even seen seals the last 3 days. I follow them to find the fish.
    We fish the upper river for a couple of weeks in mid September. The past 3 years have been pretty consistent, silver-wise. We catch a couple, fishing beads for trout, but see quite a few in some of the sloughs. If anything, I'd say this year we saw more than usual, in more places.

    Vibrex, Quickfish, Bead. All three worked just kept switching it up. Once bite stopped switched it up to something else. As of Saturday around 2 the water had not come up any noticeable level.

    Boated another silver today, as a matter of fact today was the first day I didn’t have to really look to find them. Trout fishing is still pretty good

    Lol well I wouldn’t call my self a purist but I do prefer a fly rod. About the only time I use a bait caster or spinner is when I am fishing silvers. Never had good luck with fly rods when targeting silvers. Oddly enough though I catch plenty when I am trying to catch bows!!!!!!! Speaking of bows I caught 2 silvers today bow fishing with beads. I was thrilled thinking they were both 30 inchers and then I got them to the boat. I was bummed. By the way water is still rising but still below what I would call normal for this time of year.

    Even the hardcore get a pass when fishing for salmon, I also like the vibrex and this year they worked well on the trout and dolly's.

    That fellow coworker is still catching silvers. Not a lot, but it seems at least one each time he goes out. He used to guide on the river so knows fish pretty well, he said he lost one at the boat that he figured was at least 17#. He loves this late season. My family hasn't caught a silver this season, including myself.
    Edit: That coworker just told me he took his boat out of the river.

    It was funny though! I spent 4 hours yesterday above bings yesterday, didn’t see a lot of silvers, but the trout fishing was good. Water is dropping fast!
