People are having fun with the coho fishery that just opened on the Icicle River here in Leavenworth. Especially my neighbor Dan Fisk and his son Calder, who just turned eight years old. The pair only got a bull trout, which they carefully released, the first day. Last Sunday they had much better luck, catching four coho. They had come over the day before and asked me if I had any purple and black jigs. I dug through my garage and found a jig that had been given me years ago, tied with “Husky” colors. That jig was the one that you will see in the jaw of a coho that Calder is holding in the photo that appears on my Facebook Page and in my weekly column in the Wenatchee and Moses Lake Nickel Ads and the Spokane Exchange newspapers. Calder is the most enthusiastic angler I know and thanks to his Dad Dan gets to go fishing often. I love hearing his fishing stories, and he always has a few for me when I see him. This youngster’s passion for fishing is why we work so hard to be sure he has many good days on the water ahead of him in the future.
