Ok I know it's always worth it but wanting to know if anyone has seen or thinks it is worth going out this friday to look for some fish. I haven't made it out for a couple weeks now been working on the truck and still have things to get done to it. But I'm feeling the itch to get to the water so is it worth it and if so who is game to tag along with me or let me tag long with them?

I gotta roll to Redmond to see the folks for the weekend and I leave Fri morning, or I'd be there with ya.

Andy and I are hitting Dodge tomorrow, we haven't fished together for months... I'll let you know how it goes.

Tell Andy I have two chartreuse floats of his! Haha. I found one on the Clack, and one on the Sandy too. I'll keep 'em handy the nxt time we get out. See if they really are his, but I have a feeling.

You and Jigs hooked up, that's great... It was written in the stars to be sure. Damn I'm looking forward to see you guys there.... I have some jig questions I'm needing a professionals advice on.

Ian, that's funny, do you really think they were his?
Finders keepers usually applies but if your wanting to give em back.. I'm sure he'd gladly accept the gesture

Fished the Willy Saturday. Thought I was the only one that didn't catch a fish but looked at reports and said the Sandy, Clack and Willy took very few fish.

Don't get it. The conditions were perfect. As my son said, "it's probably cheaper just to hire a guide and pay the loot".

Willy spots?

Willy spots?

Where do people bank on the Willie? I'm more of a smaller stream kind of guy, so wondering what to look for when deciding fishable water on the Willamette?

Is there any decent bank fishing available I could take the girlfriend and actually have an ok chance of hooking something?

Hit Dodge this morning w/ Bobberdown, Jigalot & Andy. Water looked great but the action was S L O W. Didn't see even one fish roll.

Worked it down and back several times from the bridge to Irish Rovers Blarney stone with; Cascade jigs, egg pooping leeches, cooners, time bombs w/ roe, DAndy slayers, nickel & chartreuse bullets, and for the final run a Ford shrimp.. Na, zip, zero, nothing.... Even Andy had the smell of skunk.

Unbelievable I know.....


You know it's a sad day when all you have to post is pictures of your bait...
However, I was quite happy with how good the Ford shrimp looked, too bad I couldn't get a steelhead to confirm my observations...

the moon(98% waxing best times 11:43 am-1:43 pm) and barometric pressure(rising) both points to next Monday.

Solunar Fishing Calendar(check by zip code)
FREE Worldwide Solunar Prediction Tables based On Your Geographic Specific Location - Solunar Weekly Forecast

If you look at the recent reports, the best fishing of 2009 has been the week of
Feb 24 and Feb 28. It was during and after the rains(increase in barometric pressure), and Moon's waning through waxing stage...

You might choose to trust the numbers or not, but thanks to AA, I started taking my own notes and started a log book as well... See if that helps...
