Fishing Song

While floating down the Klickitat in the sunny warm weather this last week, there were many salmon in the river, occasionally rippling the surface of the stream as they rolled. Which led to this song, sung to the tune of Garth Brooks' "The Thunder Rolls". The chorus was composed on the stream, the verse while driving the last couple of days. (Craig and Brian were our guides on Monday).

Early in October on the mighty river Klick,
Out with Craig and Brian on a guided fishing trip,
Driftboats on the water, the river’s running low,
Prayin’ that the weather won’t make the fishin’ slow,
Then the salmon roll, the salmon roll.
And the salmon roll, then the steelhead strikes,
Indicator down, now we got a fight,
The line screams out, out of control,
Steelhead takes flight, while the salmon roll.
