Green River Report Sat. 12-12-09 (WA State)
« on: December 13, 2009, 03:09:29 AM »

I hit the Green River in the hopes of battling a chum or anything that would bite. I arrived on the river (Metzler Park) at about 9:30 am.  Given the cold teen temperatures we had for most of this week, I would have to say that the “balmy” 26-degree air temperature this morning was almost welcome.  In reality, it was still brutally cold for my extremities, even with the proper attire.  Strike one.

My first few steps on the frozen trail was another sign that today might not be so good, especially with the recent reports of skunked outings.  Yikes!   Now, I had a partially frozen little stream to cross to get to the fishing hole.

First observation was that the river was really low.  It was low enough to see the rock bottom in the middle of the river without polarized glasses.  It was also sufficiently shallow to safely reach the other side of the river, which two anglers did.

I tied on a ¼ ounce lime green and purple marabou jig and attacked the pools known to hold fish.  Nothing.  Others there used corkies, jig and float, and even spoons.  Regardless of the technique employed the results were the same.

Zero… Zip… Nada…

The only action and movement was coming from the moving water or the removing of ice from the rod’s guides or reel’s line guides.  It was at this point that the wise quote, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result,” started to repeat in my head like a skipping record.  Strike two.

I left Metzler Park and headed to Soos Creek.  There were three anglers working the spots.  Nothing was caught or even hooked while I was there.  I drifted my jig a few times before I realized my fishing liberties had expired.  It was time to go.  Strike three.

I struck out and skunked out.  There is no other way around it and the subfreezing conditions didn’t make the results easier to accept.  Oh well, you win some and you lose some.  I’ll just have to chalk up this outing as paying dues for future success or use this as a launching pad to try out for the Mariners in the Spring.

26 degrees F, Clear Skies, Clear and shallow water.

“Papi! I like this reel. It is so much easier to use than the other one (the spinning reel) and it is more fun to use too.” Now all I can say to that is this;
“That’s my little girl!”
