They are at the mouth! All we need is for those little droplets of water to fall.

I scouted the Sandy yesterday Mornin. Looked for some fishing spots and Found 2. Good Drifting Water and A Plunking/Drifting Spot where they should be stacked up.

...is the key word... If the water is fast (that's what I assume your "drifting spot" means), they wouldn't be stacked up. They stack at obstacles, like dams, small waterfalls, etc.

Sounds like that would be a good spot to fish! Mind telling me the coordinates?

Think you mean Cedar Creek... unless you are talking about trying Eagle creek first. :D

Troutier... you could of just said "pool" or "tailout" depending on what the water is like. :rolleyes:

Dabney, Oxbow, Dodge, and Cedar Creek all have great access for the waderless, you just need waders to get to the best spots.;)

I was near the I 84 bridge and the railroad bridge today and I saw a few push up pretty cool to see I tried but I didn't catch any. It seemed like they were not stoping for any thing. Good luck

I have been fishing for a while in my life and i am not a newb. But this week has been horrible to me and I am so dissapointed that I am at the point of rage.
I will tell you the short version of the whole story.
Fished 4 days in a row counting this morning. Hooked and fought 9 Silvers in the 4 days, 3 of which snapped my line and the rest spit out my hook right after I got them very close to the shore. I saw every fish I hooked so they werent snags.
What I think the problem is mostly, 12lb Test!! and Operator Error!
Im getting a new spool of 20lb and im gonna go out and Murder those Dam silvers like there is no tommorrow!!!
