NSR Outing

Hey guys and gals,

 

Are we still getting together to fish the river Wednesday? Will it be at the Strathcona Science Park again? I guess what I should ask first, is the river fishable, meaning water levels.

 

Waiting for a reply.

Paul:

I haven't been to the Strathcona site specifically,

but in passing over the river the last few days,

it looks like water levels are down, probably enough to give it a go.

I may take a closer look tonight.

I was contemplating meeting at the Strathcona Science Park at 7pm

if it looks lilke the water is fishable.

You can see the pictures of the firehole at Flickr ( http://flickr.com/photos/scratch/sets/617694/ )

 

It is high still (only up a foot) but is still silty and chocolate. Problem being - with the scour and chocolate - who knows what we'll be wading into at the hole - it might be flats now...

 

So... I'd almost suggest not bothering with the firehole yet, or almost anywhere on the NSR - at least for a few more weeks. We'll be heading into the low-water world by 2nd week august so....

 

 

Cheers.

hola

 

Wife was in hospital last week. I an my kids stopped and fished the NSR on the way to visit her at the mis.

 

Boy caught what I am assuming is a moon eye.(tall and skinny fish, very white, big flat eyes)

A fella fishing off the west side of whitemud creek caught 3 or 4 wally's.

 

Another fella there said he caught a cpl of pike there as well.

Goldeye and mooneye are very similar - laterally compressed, large scales, silver body...

 

The difference is that moons tend to be a tad smaller overall, and their eyes are gold on top half, black on the bottom. Goldeyes are solid gold all round.

Thx Scratch

 

in all the excitement i didn't really notice the general color of the eyes.

I'll have to look at the pick an see if I can tell.

Now where did that brat put the batteries for my camera(same ones fit his remote control car)?
