LiveLeak.com - Sewer fishing
It's rain run-off, not a sewer, so what is the difference between rain run-off and a retention pond? I don't think there is much. Would I eat them? If I were SHTF hungry I would. Otherwise I would catch / release.
Probably healthier then pond raised shrimp from China.
I thought it'd be hucking a big magnet in a sewer.
Nice, but a rather small Bass!!
Dupont spinner works wonders
While in college for fisheries degree, we would fish with hand lines down the floor drains in the hatch house. They had some kind of holding tank down the drain about 15 feet. Caught some nice 2 lbers. Nice way to pass time when professor was gone.
There is a section of creek in Beaverton that runs below ground, and has a couple storm grates over them in places. I've watched what appeared to be small trout schooling in the clear water. They would attack anything you dropped down to them, bread crumbs, spit, anything that hit the water was swarmed.
I'll have the poo poo platter.
Was that at Mt hood com. collage?
In S.E portland between Stark and Division and east of 122nd. there was a creek that was placed fully underground, it's called Grant creek. It's still there and back in the 60's we used to catch trout right out of the storm entrances. I still have dreams of it. There are many creeks that feed Johnson creek that are just like this, and if someone doesn't think some huge Cutthroat trout don't inhabit some of these, well they'd be wrong.
Yes, many moons ago...
Used to work at Salmon River Hatchery in Otis also.
Know it well, Hence the name salmonriverjohn. Charley Stanley ring a bell? Neil Johnson?
Yep worked with them both.
I'd be willing to wager we've met
Kind of a dumb question, but how are the fish getting in there?
River flooding I would guess.
They all flow out somewhere, many were and are drainage's that were covered to facilitate urban growth.
