Man what a shit show that was. A friend kept wanting me to go fishing so I said yeah I’ll go. It could be interesting. Well interesting it was. There was a group of Russians and Bangladesh people and they were just snagging and keeping everything. One nice brown trout was snagged rightnin the dorcel fin and he was fighting it so I yelled loudly don’t worry it’s fouled hooked anyway you can’t keep it. Right on the stringer it went. I was fishing at the dam and this lady and her son walked within 2 feet of me and both cast right in front of me. I said really right in front of me. Oh, oh it was an accident. Yeah right. So I moved down stream and we all foul hooked fish. The 2 guys I was with hooked into 2 salmon each and we let them go. I caught in the fin about an 8lbs brown and let that go. It was fun fighting it anyway. One guy saw a brown sitting in the slow water and said man that fish is calling to me. I said go for it. He let his line float down and snagged it. The Russian guy next to me anytime a brown trout swam by he would “roll cast” like crazy or just attempt to snag fish. It was pretty frustrating to see all these people snagging and keeping fish. I wouldn’t eat shot from there anyway, but I’d have liked to catch a salmon. I foul hooked one and just yanked it out of its back. More people kept illegal fish than anyone caught legal fish. It was insane. What was cool as hell was seeing 25-30 lbs salmon jump literally right in front of you. One literally jumped on my line. I hooked onto a big one for about 30 seconds then it spit the hook. I saw some of the biggest fish I’ve ever seen in my life. At least the largest concentration of big fish in one place. Also the one guy I was with Hooked a salmon in the back and he didn’t even hook the fish he hooked a flu on its back. We released it and I removed 2 flies stuck in its back.
