I was treated to a very special event on Sunday, Mokai lent me his craft....oh my:shock::clap::cool: What a craft, I am probably aging myself but the only way I can get my point across is to call it an "E ride". I got to probe and explore all those little sloughs and tribs, what a treasure - the fish never new I was there until it was to late....what a blast.
Water temp was 48 degrees, still a bit cool but the fish and the hatch were very active. I managed a few Steelhead smolts and a few clipped Rainbows...the special catch was a few very nice Cutties....man what those fish will do to a fly.....not to mention my heart rate. If you are looking for a boat that will go up stream and also do lakes, check there site out. Great magic carpet..

Wow a fellow angler and member with bank access:shock::cool::clap::clap:....we really need to visit and become great friends. That section of water is surprising fruitful to say the least, I have fished for quite some time and enjoy it each time. Once the fish ladder is in place on Dorena the pressure will increase - enjoy it while you can.
