    Any advice on where and how to fish for coastal cutthroat in estuaries and bays?

    It's a tad early, may find some. Two words: Borden Special. Developed decades ago, by Oregonian Bob Borden. Designed SPECIFICALLY for Bluebacks. At Two Rivers Fly Shop, in downtown Albany. Mitch sells DOZENS of them every season. For casting or trolling: Hot Pink Rooster...

    Fishing out of Newberg, a Father's Day story

    Sure do enjoy reading about your escapades. Your writing style often reminds me of the musings, of Pat McManus. Sans Retch Sweeney.

    Maybe the Siletz too. It's got steel in it pretty much year round.

    If it's the pond just east of the bridges, and on the south side of Hwy. 34, do NOT (repeat NOT) eat any of the fish! There is a decades old LANDFILL which butts right up to that pond, on its SW shore.

    New to Oregon fishing

    Yep. Too late for Summer Steelies; and too early for the Winter runs. Salmon is a much better bet. Although still a tad early for the Fall fish. And OnTheDrop is your "go to" guide! September, however, is a great time to chase Bluebacks / Sea Run Cutties.

    Whoops. My bad. Timothy Lake does have some brookies of the caliber requested.
