I've got a meeting in Tillamook in the morning and thought it would be a great opportunity for some herefishyfishy! Is there anything going on in the Wilson right now?

Ya there's fish in there 12 months a year. Decent shot at a winter Steelhead up high or summer Steelhead down lower. There's probably a few early Springers in there too!

If you get down by the bay let me know how many boats you see out trolling.

I almost had my first steelhead today!!!!! I got to the spot just downstream from Jones cr. about 6:30 this morning and started floating eggs and a shrimptail. Did this for about half an hour working my way across the river. Then I let my bobber bob around just in front of me where the rock shelf goes into the water, really I was just taking a break for a minute. I literally thought to myself; it just seems like there should be fish next to ledge but I've been here 50 times before and there never is, I swear 2 seconds after I finished the thought, bobber down! bobber right back up =( bobber down again! I set the hook and saw what looked like maybe a 4-6 lb steelhead (chromer!) rocket toward the middle of the river! It stopped for a second , I got about four cranks on him, he took off upriver and about 2 seconds later my bobber came flyin back at me empty!!! He got off, but what a rush!! Thats the closest I've got to a steelhead and it was awsome!

Why would there be only three good holes right now. The water level is good and there are fish all throughout the system. There's a TON of fish in there right now!
