1st of many this year. I expect the run to be around the same as last year, if not better. All depending on the Kill nettin taking place on the Big C. Hopefully we wont get blown out for a couple weeks in the peak of the season like last year.
Ready for springers and summer steelhead! I got cheated outta my summer fishing last year being crippled up, even went so far as to loan my boat out for a month or so, so it wasn't sitting in my driveway as a temptation to float by myself with crutches. Not this year! (I'm hoping).
Santiams are so much better to fish than the mckenzie. Mckenzie is too crowded, did a float from leaburg dam to leaburg and there were 32 boats one day. No thanks.
