Just got back from a four day float down the Umpqua,yellow creek down to elkton.The fishing was epic,almost too easy!between the three of us we guessed forty-fifty fish a day.Most were caught droppin a plastic worm right under the boat and just driftin along,pulling up fish after fish.the water was so nice,the weather was perfect and not a single blood sucking insect!(did see some leaches).Had to walk the drift boat through grant creek rapid,but we ran the big one at smith ferry and got totally inverted sideways, and took some water over the rail.By far the most exiting part of the trip!Average size maybe a pound with some bigger fish mixed in.Hooked a monster on the first cast one morning, thought I was snagged and started to jerk it free when the fish went airborn and snapped me off(I swear,there were witnesses!).This is a trip I would highly recommend to the bass fisherman,pontoons would be ideal,just keep the afternoon wind in mind.We had Wayne from Arlenes in elkton shuttle us around for a very reasonable fee,I have his number if anyone is interested.:D

I had no idea such critters live there. From the sounds of things the resident population all have whiplash!
