jd, i recomend if you want to keep a ton of people off your spots then it's better not to tell where you fish. one report is all it takes and your favorite spots will be covered in garbageand there will be so many people fishing it's rediculous. just a suggestion nice job by the way. sounds like you had a blast

According to "Complete Angler's Guide to Oregon" and "Fishing in Oregon", there are only a handful of spots that are not on private land.

It might also be good to mention, that ALL trout Over 16" are considered a steelhead in that stream. So, they must be tagged as a steelie. Plus, it is ONLY open for Artificial lures and flies (NO BAIT or even "artificial" bait like Power Worms). And it has a 2 trout per day, daily bag limit...NOT 5.

Not only are trout over 16 inches considered a steelhead unless the stream is open to the taking of native steelhead you can't keep them at all because they would be considered a native steelhead.

Wow interesting??, I've had (me alone) at least 6 or 7 maybe even 10 days of 100+ fish on the Crooked River and it's not private and they weren't smolt! But that was a few years back before the flow one year killed everything off. Feels good to gloat! ;)

Not all trout over 16" are considered steelhead....only rainbow trout, 16" and over cutthroat can be retained in most coastal rivers.

I made a post on here yesterday, in regards to this stream being overfished and overcrowded and so forth.

So, who DELETED that post?
