I spent a good part of today in the middle section of the Salmon River. It was a tough day in general. I had high hopes because of the 50 degree temperature, but the wind did not help me out most of the day. I landed one decent brown trout (and a small steelhead that was not worthy of a photo).
I did, however, get to play around with the GoPro camera a bit more today. I was curious what kind of photos it would take on a solo excursion. I set the camera up to take still photos every 2 seconds instead of recording video. So, here is a play by play of the brown trout that I caught.
Smile for the camera.
It looks like Saturday will be spent inside drinking coffee and staying warm. The forecast for snow, 40 to 50 mph wind gusts and a high barely exceeding 20F is not very appealing, even to the most devoted winter fisherman. At some point, even the strangest of us cold weather fisher-folk (which is an organization that I am well aware I am a member of) have to draw the line between fun and downright suffering!
