I heard that Herman creek is a favorite fishing spot for steelhead of my dad. He says one year he limited out on steelhead alone, For the whole year (20 steels). So I asked and I went there, Saw some big Ugly fish there, Couldent tell if they were salmon or steelhead cause I was little. So dose anyone have some expirence there for steelhead or Salmon??? Cause I REALLY want to atleast land one, (Ive never caught a Salmon/Steelhead :( )

Herman Creek is probably one of the least glamorous places to fish in Oregon.
There are lots of fish in there, but it's just a hugeee snag festival. :rolleyes:
If you got a boat you can troll around the mouth there and do well on plugs and spinners. I think all the snagging that goes on with the bankies turns the bite off real quick.

DUde 2 years ago when i used to fish for stealheads with my cousin, we caught atleast 2 each everytime we went there. If u ever heard of an asian guy named Adam that sells These jigs that he makes, i used to fish with him.

I loved that place. It was soo fun fishing there. THis is no lie. When we fished there we were the only ones catching fish, NO LIE. Everybody always came up to us and asked us wut we were using. Our method was 20lb toughline with 7 ft of flourocarbon with a clear bobber and tooth pick along with his purple "bionic leech" jig.
