Not me personally. But I saw about 20 fish on there from where I was at today.
Been a week or so since I picked up a fish from there.
But, fish are caught there every morning.
If you are there between sunrise, and 830am, your chances of a fish are very good.
After 830, its gotta be high flows, or working the tide for productiveness.

Good luck. :)

I believe he was saying he was at a hole where he could see the bowling alley hole and from what he could see there were at least twenty fish hooked at the bowling alley hole not twenty fish hooked in the hole he was in.

In Gladstone behind the old bowling alley. If youre north bound on 99/McGloughlin, pass the bridge that runs over the clack, take your first right at the light, the trail that runs down is through the field on the right. Find a spot to park(good luck when its hot) and hit the field to find the trail. When walking behind other guys fishing, make sure you say "behind" as youre walking by. Or you WILL leave with a new peircing.:)

The more people cram in on that bank, the better the show gets!!


And for me, I've found if you eat pinto beans the night before fishing there, in the morning I usually have a good 4ft of space between me and the next guy.

Pinto beans and hard boiled eggs and its just like fishin by yourself!!:shock::shock:

Well the morning bite is the morning bite. Can always count on 10-20 fish caught. Good days 20-40.

When the river comes up, there will be bigger days too, when it stays like the morning bite all day long.

If you watch close, it goes from 75-100 people, then at 8-830 it drops down to 20 tops. Early bird gets the fish.

That sounds like it mighta been me. Any time you tangle up with my line, expect to have your line cut and back to you in 5 seconds.
Im pretty nice about that, some guys will crimp your barbs if you tangle up with em and they untangle.
Im not hangin out trying to untie some knot thats gonna kink my leader. And when a guy thinks hes gonna stop in front of me while bringin' his fish down, better keep on truckin' down to where no one is at. Alls I say is "keep on takin him down". If I have to say it again, Ill throw in afew more words I learned from the cool kids:whistle:.
Time is fish when fishin' the Alley. The fish could push through in the time it takes to untangle a leader or bank a fish.

Ive fished there 4 times so far and its not my favorite spot but at the time I didn't know very many places. I saw tons people and to be honest I didn't see any fights. Or any one trying to start a fight.

The only thing I noticed was some people would drift way to long and tangle up with a few people down river. I am not the one to cut some ones line because of a honest tangle with that many people its gonna happen. But I would if it was the same dude over and over.

wow, you are an asshole.

Well yes he is a @$$ hole, but what he is doing there is keeping it real lol. Most the time you can have a new rig tied on and back in the water faster then trying to untangle some of the rats nest you can get out there.

Cutting someone's line saves more time than trying to untangle it; unless it's a simple hook to hook snag. I'd rather they cut the line instead of making me and everyone around wait to keep fishing. Besides with a bad enough tangle you'd have to replace the leader anyway.
