3 of us walked about a mile stretch of nice river on the Willamette near River Road in Eugene. Caught 33 Trout and a couple big suckers. Almost all Cutties. It was a blast. We were drifting worms the whole time. Caught a nice sun burn too. Nothing exceeded 15", but they were healthy little fish. Sorry no pics. We were wading in shorts and don't have a water-proof cam.

Were you in the Chapman island area. I fished there earlier this year when the water was up and didn't do much. I was wondering about now that the water is down. Good job, I know the Willy has some very nice cutts in it. Qwa

We were down by Whitney (Whitley) Landing. Havent' fished there before, so I couldn't tell if the water was low or hi. It seemed kinda low though.
