Kayak Fishing On The Chetco

Yesterday was one of those very special days on the Wild River Coast of Souther Oregon! It was very warm with brilliant sunshine. The new grass is green with the branches of the trees still bare from their winter's rest. The Chetco River was swollen from the rain we had earlier in the week...just right for floating down the river in the Kingfisher 10 Electric Powered Kayak without running into any rocks or having to get out to pull the kayak through low water!

Jim drove the truck up to Ice Box; which is four hour-float time from Social Secruity Bar at about 9:00 a.m. He didn't want to get cold going earlier in the morning. What a man! There is a fishing tournament going on this weekend, so the river was packed with drift boats. The long day of pulling those oars was given over to the guides or to husbands or the strongest passengers. Jim ran into a couple from Redding, CA, that had caught three nice Steelhead. The wife had caught all three since she couldn't manage the boat rowing duty. They shared a secret bait technique with Jim. He was busy early this morning drilling out float thing ma jings and stuffing them with....sorry it's a secret that he was sworn to keep.

I took our largest Lab, Sadie, with me when I went to pick him up at Social Security Bar. Sadie has had two legiment replacements this past fall only to later find out that her hips are shot. It is genetic and there isn't much we can do for her. I figured she would enjoy getting in the river even if she can't run much any longer.

Sadie was in her element splashing through the water sure that she could catch a floating sea gull. Jim took his time loading up, talking to other fishermen in the gravel loading up their boats. We played enough that Sadie was soaking wet and then drove up to Ice Box to pick up the truck. Sadie got to play again while Jim transfered the kayak from the car to the truck, loaded up Sadie along with a few rocks to line a new planting area.

Jim has had a lot of interst in the electric Kayak. He carries business cards in his PFD. The electric powered kayak can be seen on our website, www.winchuckriverstore.com and also on eBay. We are selling the plans only on eBay.

I got to thinking how helpful Prolotheraphy was for my arthritis on my thumbs. I have eliminated 99 per cent of pain in joints that no longer have any cartlidge. I was wondering why it wouldn't work for Sadie. I looked it up on the internet to see if they ever do that for dogs and found that they do. Now, to convience my doctor to talk with our vet to see if they can get together to give Sadie an opportunity to live out her life. She is only five and deserves to live at least till she is 12 or 14! I'll let you know the progress I make with this plan. We live in a rural area and don't have large vet hospitals where they do cutting edge techniques, but we do have a good vet and a wonderful doctor that does Prolotheraphy. Surely they will be willing to get together to make it possible for Sadie to romp in the river for a few more good years!

Jim is out on the river again today. Maybe when the rain shows up tomorrow, he will take the time to write up a fishing report in his blog. He does get pretty compulsive about building kits out in the garage or driving up to Ice Box to put in for that run down the river when he can. He is just gaining interest in driving our business on the internet.....it took me listing his kayak for sale! Suddenly he perked up and wondered how browsers work and what can I do to make his kayak more visable! What a man!

Sadie just came over to the computer to give me a warm smushy kiss. I bet she wants to go with me again today, when I pick Jim up...we need a kayak that has a motor to drive up to Ice Box to get the truck itself!! Sadie wouldn't appreciate that!

You might need heavier line and tackle to account for powerful
river flows. Depending on how you're going to want to do your fishing you'll want to
find a boat to rent for Michigan fishing.
If the fish are not hitting on your main crappie jigs you may
need to switch to live bait or a combination of live and artificial baits.

You can pick up basic equipment for very little or you can go for higher quality tackle and spend hundreds
or thousands. Pay close attention to the mayflies, midges, and stoneflies
in the area and try to match your flies to the size and type
fish are biting on. Most of the fishable water
in the upper river is boulder runs in deep canyons and it is
scenic.
