I'd head for the coast. Eagle Creek has some but mostly what you'll find are spawning fish in the shallows. If your fly fishing you'll have an extremly tough time getting coho to rise to a fly.

Duck and Goose hunting.. wait for steelhead. :lol:

I'd roll to the coast... better chance for higher quality of fish. IMO.

Also hit Wilson, a little bit higher up, Jones creek? down to mile marker 19ish. One little 3 inch fish caught my 3 inch bluefox, and then did catch one decent one. He did 2 good jumps for me. Not much else and was a wee bit chilly and wet out there!
Cheers.

one steelhead

one steelhead

well it has been a slow four days of fishing. Landed a native Steelhead on the first afternon at dodge park on the sandy. been fishing Oxbow, Dodge ,and the hatchery on the sandy. have been getting a bunch of white fish. spent fri on the Wilson and water was moving pretty fast for the fly rods. Not sure if there just are not many fish in the river or if im doing somthing wrong will keep pluging away at them.
