I need ideas of what to do... go swing for steel in empty rivers of the valley(Sandy or Clack)? Go travel a couple hours to fool some trout in the central part of the state(Big D, Crooked or Metolius)? Go travel a couple hours and swing for steel on the coast(Wilson or Nestucca)? Anyone else wanting to hit the rivers?

Sorry man but I gotta work. Not much good news coming from local rivers yet. I'd go coastal like Mark said

Eggs, keep in mind a lot of snow fell Central & East this last week. Can ya get where you want to get?

I'm gonna fish Stillwater on the coast tomorrow but had plans to be on N.Twin (right now) which I could have gotten to last week, but not now.

I wonder if that trout felt a bit disoriented...since they rarely swim upside down?

Sounds like a NICE day, even though it was chilly.

By 9 it was hoodie weather.. the sun really warmed things up..

Fishing that section of river by yourself on a sunny winter day calms the soul(between the 'fish on').

Knee deep in it
That's one of my fav. rivers, just about anywhere on it and I'm good to go. Fish or no fish, I long for that side of the mt's.
