Went fishin. Eagle Creek on Sunday with a friend, Osmosis. Did pretty well. Osmosis could have been done before the sun was up, but it took me a bit to hook into anything...Lemon Joy, and wham, started party fishing! Had a couple Natty Spawned brutes, but mostly brats, and saw a bunch of weird little stocker sized trout smolts jammin up. We actually had the opportunity to essentially sort through fish, there were so many comin up. Osmosis banked an 18 pound Coho buck that was over 3 feet in length. It is among the top 5 biggest fish landed from the creek this year. Fun day, with probably close to 30 fish hooked into between the two of us. Osmo hooked majority, but I held my own, and we both simply crushed 'em A few came unbuttoned towords the end of our excursion, which was kind of weird, but it still happens. Good day all in all, and got some great pictures. Freezers on the verge of burstin, better start cookin...Ian, out.

Three more pics. A couple money shots there...;)I'm in the red, Osmosis in the green by the way.

Here are a couple more fish from days after the fifth...Check out the uber-darkie...He's at Tony's gettin smoked down! Real fighter though, 4, 3/0 Gamas were lodged into him at various points. He was hooked so badly inthe gill he was leaving a grease trail behind him, of blood...Poor guy. At least he will be thouroghly enjoyed by many.

Some of those coho were just Angry. Double backflips and all..

Maybe we'll run into each other tomorrow. The water should be on the drop and first and last light ought to be pretty killer.

Yeah it was a pretty good day wasn't it? Hit me up, you'll know where I'll be tomorrow...And yes those fish were just full of hate, almost all of 'em. Thanks man, maybe see you tomorrow...If zilch down low, I'm gonna try to chase 'em up to the lowest spot I can find...Get away from the snaggs.

That first picture of you with that bass gear bent to all hell is pretty funny man, and you can actually see how bright that particular feesh was on the far side of its hate flip splash...

Those big Chinook better be ready this coming spring, cause it is going to be backbounce city in those wicked holes. If we get lazy we'll dive 'em, but I want to get some Bill type action in, but actually net the fish.:rolleyes: You know.

So are you trying to imply that the winter Steelhead will now have absolutely zero chance of making it past us? I killed them this year from the bank, if we backtroll, or sidedrift, the sewer trout won't know what to do, lights out...If we get a decent return this winter. Hope so, but yes we shall at least try for the tail end of the Coho in the Clack. God, 11.7, makes you want to spit in the river to get it up that last inch and a half.

Evening Bite

Is there such a thing as an evening bite? It seems like we're all out there at the crack of dawn to get the first bite but is there any action late afternoon to the evening?

No wonder I didn't get any action, you guys nailed 'em all. Was out there in the morning after playing in the muddy Sandy. Didn't see anybody catching anything. I need to fish with you guys :pray:

Theyre Pretty dark, just like the rest of the EC fish. ALl but one cut nice, one was orange.

Yes, we killed 7 so thats all you see in the group shot. 6 adults and a jack. We C&R around 30 fish in one day.

Lol 5 fish makes you an expert, I get it... and 2 over 20 lbs raj? you need to invest in a scale as you apparently have no clue as to what fish weigh. Clackamas Coho extremely rarely exceed 20lbs.. I can say positively they were far from 20lbs without even seeing them. More reasonably in the 8-12lb range.

If you have to worry about the hook being in the mouth - you are not an ethical fishermen. You are just hitting fish with hooks.

we have a witness to both the fact that we are actually fishing, and catching fairly - plus the numbers we quote..

Which one of the guys under the bridge was using the 4/0 treble hooks I was pulling out of the fish's backs?

HAHA I misunderstood you completely.
Yeah 3 and 3 plus a jack.. Jacks are Great for sure.

We saw a ton of these little tiny stocker trout sized coho jacks shootting upstream that day. They weren't the cutties, they were coho but micro. None were biters though.

This year has been a good year for big fish at eagle creek, I caught this one about three weeks ago below the mouth of eagle creek. There was another guy fishing with me and he caught a wild buck that made my fish look like a hen. the fish below weighed 17 pounds.
