Salmon, why do you torture me so? This spring season I have fished relentlessly on the Clackamas, Trask, Wilson and Sandy rivers. I have used spinners, lures, salmon eggs, sand shrimp, cured shrimp and more. No luck, zero, bupkis! This morning I arrived at work (office on Clackamas River) and realized that the sand shrimp in my bait bag were reaching the end of their shelf life. Knowing that placing these little jewels in the refer would result in severely negative consequences I decided with a great sense of largesse that I would walk down to the river and donate the excess bait to one of the good ol boys fishing the big hole. I gave the shrimp to Ike. He was too busy on his cell phone to say thank you and I can only hope that he would have done so if not for the exigencies of multi-tasking. Later on, while walking the dog downstream I ran into Chuck, who advised me that within 30 minutes of Ike receiving my gift that Ike caught a 15 lb bright shiny Chinook salmon. Aarghh !*?!!# A lesser man would give up...
