Headed out in the morning to the 3 Rivers area to see if we can hook up with some winter steel. Any advice from you guys ?? We plan on using bobber/eggs, bobber/jigs and perhaps the odd spinner.

Started at the hatchery, not many fishing, saw 1 lil steel on the bank when we got there. Nobody stayed very long, water low and clear. Moved a few times, fished mainly with roe. nuttin.
Will try again next week.

Soon as we get a good rain I plan on being there..

To me, 3 Rivers is like the NF Alsea, I think it's best fished when the water is high on the mainstem.. When the water is up in the Nestucca fish have an easy time shooting up 3 Rivers... Can't wait..

If we don't get rain I don't plan on fishing 3 rivers...

2 guys got there shortly after that fish was caught. One of them, the taller of the 2, came up and talked to the guy who caught the fish. If that was you, then that was me. LOL

I'm not an expert by a long shot, but I would vote winter also.
