Holiday fishing on the Snake River and Tenmile Rapids

Finally some fish wanted to come home with us. Vic caught three smallmouth bass, 13, 11, and 8 inches.  I caught two that were 5 and 6 inches, and I promptly returned them to the river to grow up some more.

We went upstream through Tenmile Rapids to get to some pools where we had not been fishing before. From the Rapids, we went another mile or so upstream to do some more fishing, but no more fish came on board. The day was sunny, a little windy, and beautiful on a surprisingly uncrowded holiday.

Pisca-Dory awaits launch at the ramp while Vic parks our truck.

My first bass of the day was about six inches, which we thought was odd, because we saw a humongous bass swim right by us just a couple of minutes before the little guy grabbed hold. I released the little fellow to return home and grow at least another four inches.

Vic reels in his 13-incher.

    Just looking at the pictures is restful and delightful. They give a sense of being in the boat, sharing the beautiful scenery and weather (and company!)
