    Default American River

    Wow! What happened to the American River thread?
    Certainly didn't think it was that out of control to be
    deleted. That's what you find on Blanton's site.
    Is this what we can expect on. Kiene?

    Larry you’re right! I thought it was pretty darn civil compared to other topics that have been discussed. -_-

    Default Found One!

    Fished high in the river. A little crowded but not as bad as a week ago. Landed this one and lost a big colored up buck. K

    Katz,
    Sweet!

    My apologies to Bill Kiene! It's his board and is in the driver's seat.

    Looks like a wild hen by the looks of the tail......


    Larry & WinXP, thanks for your wonderful support of the forum but I just can't ever let a political thing take off here.

    It would end the forum after 26 years............


    We don't talk about "politics or religion"......actually no body cares much about religion any more.

    I see where you are coming from Bill. Fact is though if one talks conservancy here in CA or any place for the most part, gets involved in politics. It’s just how things are tied up. But like Larry said we have to respect your decision it’s not our forum.

    I landed an 18" hatchery fish Saturday afternoon mid-river swinging a black and white Beldar bugger. It was my third cast of the day. Got him in a knee-deep riffle about 20 feet from the shore. My biggest fish since I resumed fishing the A in August. And the only time I didn't get on the river before sunrise.

    I didn't see the offending post(s) but I think it's a good idea to keep politics off of here.

    Unfortunately, it's impossible to talk about water without going into politics........Fished the A for a couple of hours ......steelhead have nothing to fear from me.

    Nice to see and hear some folks are finding some steelhead on the American!

    Thanks Bill for trying to keep the forum as clean as possible. For the most part, I think you do a far better job than most other online forums these days. I agree with comments that it can be difficult to separate out politics from important issues pertaining to our healthy fisheries, but there does come a point where things can quickly spiral into pointless negativity. Those kinds of discussions would likely be positive ones if done face to face, over a beer or around a campfire. Online, sadly, things are different. The random political “jabs” that pop up from time to time, for instance, can really sour the mood of the board. I apologize for my part in making things any more political in the previous thread.
    Tight lines to all!
