Does anyone have any current info on this lake? I`ve heard stories of Brookies 13-16 inches. Sounds to good to be true.

With low water on the rivers and less traffic from drift boats and summer floaters, fishing and solitude have been pretty solid. I strictly swing this time of the year with spey rods for both steelhead and trout. (Steelhead year round 100% spey) A buddy of mine and I did a float with the rain...

First off let me say, I typically won't pull a fish out of water if I plan on releasing it. I was by myself and had to snap a photo of this guy. Took me by surprise, I have always been under the assumption that the S. Santiam doesn't have any native Rainbows in it. First I thought I was hooked...
