    Yeah I had a ton of people pissed at me. Lost a friend due to it as well, live and learn. Now I just post basic info as to not overload small rivers. Like I said, lesson learned.

    Don't know what the quote was, but based on the subject of this thread, I can probably guess. Must not have been a very good friend anyway....

    Was thinking about checking a few spots on likely the same river..but the ticks are something else there,and to hot for waders.

    These make believe early run kangs on these make believe small rivers/streams are aggressive. Your fall run tackle will work on these make believe fish!! Cranks, spinners and so forth will produce. But my favorite is a 700 series RR in fire tiger but its a pricey lure to lose in the make believe wood!!

    You've manned up, so kudos to you, and if it actually caused a friendship loss, you're better off without! It's no secret!

    I'm new to the salmon/steelhead runs. How's the edibility of the summer run Kings? Is it like the earlier/fresher/brighter they are make for higher quality eating?

    It varies by the fish. Generally speaking, yes you are correct. However, I have caught bright hens with soft white meat off of the piers, and I have caught tan colored males with nice color and firm meat 30 miles up river in late september..... Generally speaking, when it comes to salmon and steelhead - I get my grilling fish from summer/fall steelhead and pier kings (during summer flips or early "pre-run" timing). Essentially everything I get from the river are either smoked or sometimes canned. There are some instances though where fresh coho are present, and they get grilled most of the time.

    I've got an imaginary friend who told me he used to dream about getting into kings in the river about this time before - maybe.
