10 days on the John Day River

I just finished 10 days on the John Day River and man was it fun!

The first 6 days Rochelle, Xander, and I spent with our family doing day floats, camping, and hanging out in the very unpredictable weather. The river was pretty high, muddy, and fast, but we made the best of it and all had a good time. Here's Xander hanging out with his cousins:

The last 4 days I spent with my buddies, who also do an annual float trip. The river started dropping and the weather improved. This definitely helped the fishing as you see below...

At the risk of drawing ire from those that fished with me this past week and a half, I won't post pictures of the other hogs I caught. Let's just say the numbers:

Fish 1 - 5.5 lbs.
Fish 2 - 6.5 lbs.
Fish 3 - 5.0 lbs.

It was a good week. =)
