Yep. Just looked off the Richardson Gap bridge on Crabtree Creek and saw a few coho down below. They are at Broken Dam on Thomas Creek also. Cool!!

Wow, I didn't know Thomas Creek got a run of Cohos, I've pulled out some nice Cutthroats and Smallmouth in the past few years from Thomas close to Greens Bridge on the Santiam.

Everyone tells me Jordan Bridge (Stayton) is Thomas Creek, but if you go a slight bit upstream from that bridge, it says Jordan Creek. I've seen a few Smallmouth and caught a few Cutthroats, Rainbows, and Squaws under the bridge that everyone jumps from and just slightly upstream from that same bridge.

I wouldn't fish somewhere without checking the regs on it first, I think it is closed to Trout right now also, so I wouldn't have any business in that area anyways, let alone checking the regs on it. I could atleast say thanks for the heads up though.

No problem. I posted that for other peeps too. Just didn't want to see anyone get a fat ticket, and fill the pockets of the state any fuller.

Jordan Creek flows into Thomas Creek. If you continue on past Jordan Creek headed towards Lyons about a 1/4 mile you will come to Thomas Creek road which goes up to the upper Thomas Creek. The road deadends at a bridge, and it's gated.
I shot a video of the gated bridge way up thomas. I was going to find it and post the link but this website is acting up right now and it won't let me go to the FISHING VIDEOS page. Maybe you can find it in the mess the SM made of it all.
