If I bring the Lazy Drifter will someone help me shuttle? I've never been down the Santiam so having someone with me who has would make me feel better about taking the Drifter.
I plan on getting to Shady Grove CG on Thursday as early as I can from Hillsboro. I'll be sleeping in the back of the truck or in my tent if I'm not too lazy.

Unless someone is willing to share space in a camper!!??!!

I've always done well with generic patterns - Adams, Humpy (Royal and Yellow), Stimulator's, Bivisible. In addition to those, Elk Hair Caddis have always done well - along with black micro buggers, small woolly buggers, and Zug Bugs (prince nymphs will do fine as a stand in for Zug Bugs.)

That just means it's going to be more of a sub-surface game than a dry fly game I guess. Fish will still be there. If the river winds up chocolate pudding in color, or flowing to hot & heavy, there's always Detroit Lake not far away...

I gave up wishing for it to stop, just gonna have to go out anyway. At least if you wade you'll be in the water top and bottom!

Was at the little North Santiam on Sunday planned to fish but it turned into more of a scouting trip. The river was as high as I have ever seen it. Way to high for me to even set up my fly rod. Hope this won't affect your plans. Just thought y'all would like a heads up.

We're still going Friday-Sunday. It's the only chance I've got to get away from work, and we've already lined up a family member to watch the baby for the two and a half days. If the water is clear but high - the river will fish. If it's chocolate + high, it might fish with gear (fly fishing wouldn't be horribly fun in such conditions). They're forecasting 70 degree weather for this weekend now - so maybe, just maybe, the river will be on the drop and clearing by then, if not at least clear & high.

The biggest issue with high, clear water, is wading safely. There's some pools I like fishing that are scary to wade in the summer flows, but add a foot or more to the water height, and they'll be unwadable (like, over my head unwadable).

Nymphing is probably going to be the name of the game, I'm hoping that there will be dry fly action, but we'll see.

I have a few pools I want to check out that I haven't been to for awhile, anyway, so I will still be there. This is Oregon....who knows what the weather will be like. If all else fails I will go to Mill City and see my new little great nephew that should be born at any moment........:D
