Well hit the sandy this morning around, well I'm not to sure what time it was:think:. Hit it with kirkster, we fished arond pipeline for a while and saw fish rolling and jumping but no action on the end of the rods. We decided to make our way down river a little bit and see what was going on there.

Got to the next hole, I have to say I really like this hole. I started out tossing a spinner as well did Kirk. On his first cast he had what he thought was a snag for a sec then the snag started tugging back at him:shock:. That fish on lasted for about ten secs.

I decided to switch to eggs and bober, not to long after that I got fish on. Landed a ok size buck. About ten minutes later Kirk is still tossing the spinner and as it is dropping down in the water it got hit fish on, this one turns out to be a nice big fat hen. Just so happens to be Kirks first fish on a spinner and have to say I think he liked it. As he is fighting this fish I start to get ready to reel in my eggs to see if I can help him land it and wouldn't you know it fish on:dance:. Had to yell to him "Sorry your on your own man we got us a double":lol: Now there is a sign of a good hole when you are the only two people in said hole and you end up with a double. Turns out we both got some eggs from the double both get hens.:cool: (I won't say this to often but his was bigger then mine)

Little more time goes on I miss a couple bober downs and then there it is another one on the spinner. Kirk ends up landing a buck this time.

So have to say was a good day on the water four fish landed and we were leaving with a day still. Left at around 1:00pm.

The hole looks great! especially with the fish... I havent seen any bit of river like that yet. Mind sharing where these holes are? I have yet to learn what the garbage, pipeline, etc. holes are.

Yes it was a great day all. We had a good time and the nite was pretty good to.

Kevin you wouldn't be able to make it to this hole or most the holes we go to for the river and the spots you have to cross would take you down and under. No I'm not joking or giving you a hard time on this one, The water we cross almost takes us for a ride. Gets waist deep and is a strong curent.

Autofiher you might want to head down this way. The fish aren't in by the hundreds like most people want to see but when you take the time to find the right spots and spend the time and work it takes to get them it's worth it. Lot of people think and say the fish aren't there or aren't biting but they are you just have to work for them.

:dance: Great job bigdog on the pics, Looks almost as good as it did in person. There is nothing like killin coho on a sunny october day and with no one else in sight. Once again thanks dog for the invite. It was a nice break from the cedar creek circus.
Believe bigdog about the hairy situations to get to that hole. There were a couple times I wasn't sure where I'd be when I got where I's goin. :lol:

I haven't fished the Sandy since I was in highschool and lived in Troutdale. I can only imagine how the rivers changed. From what I do remember, there are some awesome spots that only the bravest people should attempt getting to. I've seen people swept downstream by the current. When I get a chance, I'll be shootin you a PM bigdog. And then it'll be a fish massacre.

Bigdog/Kirkster way to go! Walking and wading down to that hole.........you earned every fish you got. I was there in March after winter steelhead, but I had an easy ride on a 14' pontoon and didn't have to walk back out. That kind of enthusiasm puts a smile on this old guys face. Good luck and stay safe out there.;) Irishrover

Yeah have to agree great to get in to fish in a spot like that, when you have a hole that large all to yourself and can fish any part of it with out being worried about getting tangled in someones line or getting a glare because someone feels you are getting to close to thier spot.

Was good day and always a good time to hit the water with you Kirk. I'm thinking by next weekend not only will just about everywhere be good fishing but I think coho island will be hot. Don't think after the rivers go up any we will be able to make it to that hole by walking.

Well... I don't even have waders, so that'll have to wait a long time.

And... what's with all the tuff faces? No smiles? :lol:
