I spent yesterday at the Luckiamute river with my wife. It was a beautifill sunny winter day. Upper 40s, water 43. The place is just beautifull. The water in the river was cristal clear. The river is not deep thoug. Don't know if there are fish there (didn't catch any didn't see any).
Hey! Don't go giving away my secret fishing rivers!!
The Luckiamute picks up when the weather gets warmer. I fish the lower river by Adair Village (Helmick Park, between Monmouth and Corvallis) for summer smallmouth.
I tried to fish in Helmick Park but the water is so muddy there. I coudn't beleive it's the same river.
May be we'll visit that hole together when it's warmer?
That is a georgeous river. Nice pics Anatoliy. Does it have a Steelie run? Chinook run?

Too bad about the fishing but you sure know how to share great pictures!
Success is just a failure away!
Oops. Luckiamute river is not open for fishing. :shock:
I didn't do it. It was not me. :whistle:
Don't feel too bad about it. The first time I was there I was knocking the bass and pike minnows dead. Found out the next day that it is artificial flies and lures only..... :shock:
It will be available after opening day for streams, but trout are catch and release year round there.
theres just got to be some fish............
My favorite place to fish for smallmouth on the Luckiamute is right where it flows into the Willamette at Buena Vista. Put in at the ferry and motor up (or row) into the mouth and it is great stuff. One evening at dusk I tied on a really small rust colored jig that I tied (kinda like a crappie jig) and skimmed it along the top in about 2'' strips very fast and I hit fish after fish after fish. All nice smallmouth. Ran into a guy one time that is part of a little club in the valley and they have tournaments there every now and then. If your boat floats high enough you can get about a mile and a half up stream. One afternoon there I saw a smallmouth that was so damn massive I though it was a carp at first! Great stuff check it out.
where are those pictures taken at. the river looks real fishy. i don't need an exact location but a town name would be good so i can look it up on the map.
