Fish America: It’s Worth It

December 21, 2010

[dme:image size="small" side="left" title="fishamericafinal [nid:1001337646]" index="-1"/]

Novelist Ralph Ellison said: “Had the price of looking been blindness, I would have looked.”I’ve spent exactly 200 nights on the road. I’ve caught 48 species of fish, slept in 102 cities, towns and villages from Eastport, Maine to Key West to San Diego, to Cape Flattery, Washington. I lost count of the number of Wal-Mart parking lots I’ve woken up in, I crashed on the couch of a marine artist in Islamorada for nine days, I fished with a certified rock star, Clarence Clemons, I’ve thrown plugs, dries, spoons, nymphs, jigs, spinnerbaits and chunked baits in tiny ponds in Vermont, from atop a boulder in the crashing Montauk surf, to Seattle’s Puget Sound.

    Fish America: There's Never a Bad Week of Fishing-2

    by

    Pictured here is a rainbow trout taken from The Lower Mountain Fork River in Broken Bow, Oklahoma. This is the only fish I’ve got to show for the week. A cold front moving in had trout on the river scarce and selective. I’m hopeful a trip to the White River in Arkansas, some legendary trout water, will offer redemption.

    One week, one rainbow; an abject failure right?

    The rainbow was caught by Oklahoma guide Greg Dodds. Greg, a father, husband, airline mechanic and former strong safety on his base team in the Marine Corps, loves fly-fishing enough to get up at 4:30 a.m. to make the three-hour drive from his home in Broken Arrow to Broken Bow. He makes this trek because if it seems to you like Oklahoma is a state short on places to drift a dry, then you’re right.

    Dijon Carp-12

    by

    Two men. Two nights. Two fish. One hundred seventy-seven pounds of carp.
       
    Best friends Paul Roberts and Richard Middleton made history last week when they each reeled in monster carp on two successive nights on a small lake near Dijon, France. Yes, that Dijon – the one made famous for its extremely strong mustard. And now for monster carp. The Dijon tourism board must be jumping with joy.  “Now we are known for mustard and carp! Ce Magnifique!”  (That last bit’s funnier if you imitate Pepé Le Pew when you read it aloud.)

    Shark Turns Up in Yuma, Arizona-4

    by

    Apparently there’s not a lot to do in Yuma, Arizona.

    That’s the only explanation I can come up with for why someone would throw odd fish, including a dead shark, into one of the city’s canals - aside from stupidity of course.

    The first bout of fish dumping began back in September when authorities discovered some adult peacock bass in the Welton-Mohawk canal system near Yuma.  As peacock bass aren’t native to Arizona, someone had to have put them there. Why, isn’t known. What is known is that if left in the canals peacock bass would eventually cause all sort of problems. As Officer Richard Myers of Arizona Game and Fish explained, the fish could "… have detrimental biological consequences to our aquatic ecosystem by introduction of a non-native fish species as well as bring unknown diseases and parasites in our waterways."
