The Coquille Valley Sentinel
Fishing In Utah
By Lans Leneve
Following are extracts from a let
ter writton to the Coos Bay Harbor
by Lans Leneve who to now con
nected with a sporstman’s magazine
and located at Ogden, Utah:
Thought I let you know that I am
still on the map, although dam near
melted off it. The Weather has been
a scorcher here for the past two
months, not only during the days but
the nights as well. We have slept
with nothing but a sheet over us for
weeks, and that really to too much
covering. Sure makes us long for
Coos county’s nice climate.
We have had so many fish we are
tired of them and so are all the
neighbors, as we have given away
dozens and dozens of them. Once
we hit the Utah system, it hasn’t
taken us long to make some real
catches. One trip, one day’s fish
ing, my wife and I brought in 42.
The weight of the catch was 54
pounds. I carried them half a mile
on my back through the broiling sun,
and believe me I thought they
weighed three times that much by
the time we reached the car.
You sure get some big trout here.,
Last week a 14 year old boy caught
the world’s largest brown trout (that
to, the largest trout on record). It
weighed 36 pounds and 12 ounces.
There are all sorts of fish here,
eastern and brook trout, chub, her
ring, catfish and suckers.
There are lots of deer in this
state. Last season, a 10-day season,
there were 15,000 deer killed. And
there are more ducks here than most
any place in the United States. Also
lots of Chinese pheasants.
But take it from me. there to a
fisherman for every fish, a hunter
for every deer and a hunter for every
duck, judging from what I have seen
I was on the air the other evening
with some of my dog stories, broad
casting from the city park here.
I have made some mighty fine
friends here and get frequent invi
tations to go on fishing trips. One
trip was over into Wyoming and we
fished in a beautiful lake surrounded
by snow-clad peaks. Made a wonder
ful catch in that lake.
I like this country, If it wasn’t for
the heat; but at that I would not trade
old Coos for half this state. My wife
even goes farther than that and aays
she wouldn't trade one acre of Coos
for ALL of this state.
But we must take things in this
life as we find them and we can’t
always do the things that we wish
and like best, or live where we pre
fer. And the best frineds we acquire
in this life are usually the ones that
we see the least of.
You should have tried to see Cobb
go by in his Red Lion. That’s all
you could do, to try and see him.
It was « case uf "here he comes
there he goes." Just a blue streak
passing and barely discernible against
the whiteness of the salt flats.
