Good job you 2. I really want to run that river with my boat however I have a classic woody. Is it a pretty text book run or some what technical ?

Let me put it this way...I bought a fiberglass driftboat a month ago. Prior to today, I had only ran the Umpqua, Lower McKenzie, upper Willamette, Lake Creek, and Siuslaw with someone with lots of experience rowing a boat. That's all of the rowing experience I have. Period. So today I was on my own so to speak, and I did not die or maim my boat in anyway lol. It's a very easy drift. If I can do it...trust me, it would be cake for you.

Fished it yesterday...seemed a little high but had good color. Some guys did well at the plunking shack but nothing for me. I started at around milepost 18 and worked my way up river. The last spot i fished at was mill creek park.

-Thanks

River was good today, used a new jig I just tied up and it worked very well. Hooked both within 20 minutes of each other. My camera battery died so I had to take a crappy phone pic. I think this new year may be a good one!:D Hope everyone has a good Christmas!

We fished the NF yesterday and my brother's fish was the only one I seen caught.. pretty slow!

That fish is maxillary clipped,(I think that's what they call that clip) which means it's a descendant of a wild Alsea steelhead.. a broodstock fish. Am I right here? Anyone? :think:

They kinda look retarded without that little maxillary plate! hahaha

Ya I believe your right, if the maxillary is clipped then it's a descendant of the wild Alsea stock. This was the the first jig I used bunny fur on and it sure does look real fishy in the water.

Rabbit fur is killer. I've been using it almost exclusively lately because it's quick and easy to tie up and has an insane action in the water.

Nice fish.

I'm takin' my bro up there Saturday, it's his last day of leave. He hasn't been steelhead fishin' in a year or more so hopefully I can get him into something. Don't even care if I get skunked if he gets something. Thanks for the promising-ish report.

Christmas miracles do happen.

Or maybe, pre-Christmas miracles.
