THREE-WORD THURSDAY: Bites. Mouth-Breathers. Porn.

Welcome back to Three-Word Thursday, where Fish Hack is faking it through what passes as a Fish Wrap work day after spending the morning trying to catch that first upper Rogue River spring chinook salmon of the year.

Unfortunately, the skunk is still in the boat.

Saw one springer roll, no bites. And that, my friends, bites.

Bites. Mouth-breathers. Porn.

Getting that first springer of the year is always a thrill, plus it gets the barbecue and smoker rolling. Tastiest fish in Oregon, no matter what you mouth-breathers on the Columbia think.

Fish Hack fishing buds Jess and Nate Barnard came along during this season’s first of many Wednesday Springer Sessions, when we’ll go try to turn the eyes into X’s of a couple chinook before heading off to do what we very loosely call work.

Glad it’s not Thursdays because the Naked Rain Dance outlined in Haiku Monday apparently worked too well.

This weeks post-dance storms have upped the in-flow to Lost Creek Lake. So the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers bumped the out-flows Wednesday afternoon from the lake by 300 cfs, thereby putting off whatever bite there is in the upper Rogue for a day or two.

Hopefully, we’ll see a drop in flows for the next session so what bites next week is the chinook.

Hope for some fresh fish porn for next week’s Three-Word Thursday..
