bigsteel
well Lilsalmon has:lol::lol::lol:we hit a small tributary to the north santiam in search of trout and we got plenty of them,but the funniest thing was rose was standing in the river fishing and i spooked a huge salmon and he took off like a mad man going downstream right into roses area,he was right at her feet and started thrashing around so she starts kickin and flailing aroung,,yelling ITS A SHARK.....Rose ive never seen you jump that high and it was priceless.:lol::lol::lol::lol: I had real good luck with this new caddis pattern i designed,,,i call it the hacle stacker mini..

Hey, I've seen them too....Great Whites and Hammerheads! Most of them on the bank tho.. Not to hijack or but I want to RANT a little. My last two trips to our great northwest rivers I have carried home no less than 14 assorted aluminum cans left by whomever deserves to be called worse than a Hammerhead! But really, back on thread, sounds like a really great time and a story that will surely go down in family lore for generations!! And Lil even has a witness! Thanks for sharing.

I don't know if I'd roll my eyes that much. Check this out...it was caught in a fresh water river: River Monsters : Bull Shark : Animal Planet

While Oregon is out of their range, I wouldn't be terribly surprised to learn they have adapted to our temps either...

Watch your toes ;)

Jaws comes to mind. Just think if there was an under water video shot like through the eyes of the fish then Rose's waders comes into view with the jaws music getting more and more intense followed by Rose's reaction. Bahahahahah!!!

Hey I went out on saturday (above Detroit) and couldn't find a fish rising. I have never, ever gotten less then a 10 fish day on the fly up there, but that day I only got 2. ??? Do you have any insight to the time of day the hatch is at right now and what patterns are really working right now? Thanks. And congrats on the fish. and the salmon. I really enjoyed the story.

for me the hatch has been the most consistent from 7 to 11 am then it slows down til about 5,right as the sun starts setting they go crazy.the santiam is mainly a caddis show along with stoneflies,,ive been having real good luck with small stimulator patterns,goddard caddis,and a new fly i invented the hackle stack mini,,its an emerging caddis pattern.

Hah!!!!! I can't believe you posted that....I thought only old ladies exagerate....I didn't say it looked like a shark til after...that sucker was huge...closest I came to my salmon though. Actually, the first one startled me when I was bent over washing mud OFF my hands from my butt slide (unintentional) down to the water......was in like 2 inches of water right beside me...

As a side note, it was failed to be mentioned that this same lilsalmon waded out in rushing water, waist deep, to a rock where said "sharks" were hiding, to retrieve some unnamed persons glasses.......hehe. What a day we had. :D

We were above Detroit also. The third picture is of a very sweet native trout I caught on a caddis with a green butt.......not sure what it is called, bigsteel tied it.

Yea I had one of those rave bracelets on my ankle. lmao. After those things spawn they have no fear... One swam by me on the South santiam the other day and I grabbed it by the tail real fast and held it up. Put it back in and it swam right back next to me. lol. Just waiting for death.

A wave bracelet lol!! I don't blame you for getting out of the way. At that stage those fish have teeth like dogs.
