Curious... I hear/see a lot of folks primarily drifting, floating, fly fishing and such but I am wondering if anyone is having some success with lures?
Kodiak or someone could probably chime in with more authority on the subject, but my understanding is that spinners and such are more for when the water warms up and the fish are willing to chase it a bit. Right now you need to almost smack them in the forehead to take the bait.
I watched as Kodiak reeled in a nice chunk of steel on one of his TCO spinners on the Alsea this morning. Then there was Autofisher's nice fat steelie that took his Pop-A-Top yarn for a ride down the river with him after jumping five or six times. Fluffyfisherman and I were using spinners,spoons and anything else we could find only to have two leave him empty handed and me green with envy at all the action around me. I'm really starting to hate that color...8~(
