Anybody trophy hunting?

For Big Browns in East, Paulina or Wickiup? This is usually a prime time to target them along with early season... Was at East Lake yesterday streaming and throwing large spoons ( which usually kills them ) didn't get any browns and the only fish i caught were spawning kokanee that were hitting my streamer... Beautiful little red fish tho.. Im aware that browns have eating patterns and being as familiar i am with east lake its usually about every three days they all start chompin ...im not saying you can't get a big one everyday because my biggest was around 12lbs on what i thought was the worst day of fishing . Guess i just missed them today!

Mecca flats? Could you elaborate some more? and would i need to purchase a warm springs pass? and it should be starting to heat up here soon right?

you don't need a pass. head north through madras toward mt hood. when you get to warms springs take the right turn just before the river. from there a trail gives you access a few miles downstream. fishing is good from now until the closure ( i think that is part of the river that closes) at the end of the year.
