My uncle tells me he caught a Coho at Riverside Park on the Clack yesterday. He has been known to tell a fish tale or two in his day. What do you guys think? do you think that small rain yesterday could've pushed a few silvers up there?:think:

I'm not sure the same principle would apply, but watching the shad counts, there were a few lone shad that ventured up weeks before the run started.

Could he have misidentified a summer steelhead?

Well, I shot down to Clackamette and Cross Parks today. Saw one dood plunkin' on the South bank and one casting spoons under the bridge. No one seemed to be catching. Just practicing. I did not see anything in the water but ducks.

Kodi, I'd be willing to meet up if you are going to come up this way this week. Suddenly got some time on my hands. :(

I either hit the Mega-bucks or fell victim to the economy. I am guessing it is the later. Not fretting too much, though. I already have a couple of leads, and the timing isn't all that bad. Just gotta get them Ho's in the river now and shake the skunk.

I see silver linings in the future...

Is that meeting for coho fishing or the gill net discussion thing?

Who knows?! Not me!
Id bet youd see fish staging at the mouth, way before anyone catches one. Seems they dont enter the system without a bit of rain. Maybe a few sneak on up, but I doubt that one of those few would get pulled.


Time to drive on down to Dahl an hour or two before sunset to shed some light on these rumors....

You can make your own UV blades btw with UV dyes that are like 4 bucks bottle. Not very rare, but TCO's just have a kick to them. ;)

Kodiak-if it's on the 21st... Can't make it :( I though august was a little early for coho.
