Score–Us: Zero fish. River: 4 lures

We chose Chief Timothy today for  a fishing outing with our boat Pisca-Dory on the Snake River. We enjoy this portion of the River not only for its beauty and serenity, but today we also chose it to avoid the crowds elsewhere that were closer to a noisy international jet boat race boasting no limits on horsepower.

We saw bass in the water and saw more of them in deeper water on our Garmin fishfinder. My husband hooked a fairly large bass who released himself, apparently recalling a previous engagement. I hooked a 4-incher and promptly released him. Rocks and logs took three lures from me and one from Vic. All that notwithstanding, we relished our time on the river; we always do. The day was not uncivilly hot, and the sky and canyon were clear and free of smoke. It’s okay that no fish wanted to come home with us. Fishing is rewarding in its own ways, with or without catching fish. Life is full of belayed aspirations.

I get a head start with a little fishing from the dock while Vic parks the truck and boat trailer.

We drift toward a cove, trolling with our lines, of no interest to the fish we see in our fishfinder.

We approach a cove where all the bass are happy and never wish to leave home.

My husband took all the photos for this post.
