I'm fishing near Eel lake this weekend on the coast - wondering if it's worth bringing my bigger gear and fishing the coast, or bringing my fly gear to hit the umpqua, or brining my bass gear to just fish the lake.
Eel Lake is always a lot of fun. I have had my best luck fishing the back finger for trout. We typically troll wedding rings or smaller blue foxes, if there is a good hatch then I will sit up in the bow and flip a fly back towards shore. I have no idea what the bite in the salt is like at the moment. I have heard a couple of reports that the bottom fishing has been good off of the rocks, but have yet to test it out myself.
