Fishin’ with Gavin and Sidnee
Gavin took me and Sidnee to the Umpqua River for free fishing weekend. This is looking downriver, about 102 miles from the coast. We went upriver to try for salmon, but the water was too shallow.
We went downriver and switched poles to try and catch shad. Sidnee was the first to catch a fish.
Sidnee ended up with four fish.
I think this was my second and biggest fish.
This was my last fish. It wasn’t the biggest, but it put up the biggest fight. It was fun to try fishing from a drift boat. We expected more boats on the river, so we were pleasantly surprised. We ended up with eight fish and at least that many that got off the hook. It was a great fishing day.
