xltom and I headed up to greenwood bright and early. Plunked greenwood until 10 something from first legal with only one trout ripping on my eggs. Windburnt showed up with his boat and anchored up across from us before we left. Hit a lower hole before we left and swithed to trout. we each got a small pellet head then went elsewhere and we each got a small cuttie and have a few bites and even seen some follows. Then hit hendrix with out any luck still trouting. Windburnt said water at greenwood was 45* can't wait for it to warm up. he ended up slaying some trout at leaburg.

I don't know about the temperature at greenwood but the water was cold as hell at hendix park!! I went in up to my chest after slipping on a rock in hip waders. It was hilarious....the contents of my wallet are drying on my coffee table as we speak! Luckily it was about time to leave already....Thuggin didn't even laugh at me... It was a fun day.

Thanks for the update. I'm debating on heading up there tomorrow, not too sure. I was curious how anybody had done up there lately.

Yeah, I was surprised he left that part out. What a nice guy. He even let me get back in his truck soaking wet. Hip waders sure do hold a lot of water. Hehehe!! I poured about a gallon out of each one on the bank. Should have worn golf cleats or something.

I fell in wereing my chest waders once. Not my most favorite memory.

LOL I think at some point in time we all do it. I did it on a coastal river on a cold day in February and it was miserable, but the fishing was good so I suffered through it, and it paid off ultimately, but still sucked.

Went up the McKenzie Sat. afternoon. Stopped at one of my favorite spots. A couple of people were just leaving so I stayed. They said a guy pulled out a small salmon from there in the early AM. There were trout everywhere, but they weren't biting for them. They said they were following everything they threw but wouldn't bite. I decided to try for trout with a nymph. Caught 5 and let them all go. Two cutthroats, so they had to go anyway. The guys said they seen someone pull a steelhead out of Greenwood earlier that morning. I headed there for the last hour before dark and caught one 14" pellethead. I let it go since I didn't keep anything else. I did see one big salmon jump as I was leaving.
