    Just follow the instructions for your canner for canning fish. I think mine is 110 minutes at 14 pounds of pressure...or somewhere in that ballpark.

    Re: Sac @ AR mouth report

    The river at the I Street Bridge is running at 16 feet right now, which is crazy high for this time of year. On my last trip it was up to 15 feet, and lots of boats were drifting backwards with anchors dragging.

    I use about a 15 pound fluke anchor with six feet of heavy chain, this rig normally holds my 20 foot boat no problem.

    There is a current issue Fish Sniffer article about fishing for shad in Sacramento for those who are interested - it has a canning recipe included:

    Taking off and flying is easy, it's the landings that will kill you.



    Oh Yeah!...Salmon!...Everything else is just practice.

    Re: Sac @ AR mouth report

    holy-molly thats a bunch of boats stacked up. I remember years ago 4th of july fireworks on the river. Never did that again. After the show, everybody hit the gas for the launch, the wakes were up to the bumper strip on our 18' searay, and coming over the front of the open bow.
    Remember when they would have the boat races down there between the bridges?

    Look into a “Columbia River anchor” or “rocking chair anchor”. The fluke style anchors seem to have a tough time gripping the rocky bottom.

    Mushroom style lake anchors.. forget about it.
    Here they come!
