Is any one going out tomorrow to get that last day of 08 fishing?
I going to go out to Dexter for some trolling.
I wanted to go today but my wife has a cold and I'm home making her some soup and taking care of house work for her.

Good on you for taking care of the wife, this will probably come back in the way of a trophy fish or some other sort of karma. As for me I do have to go to work or I too would be out on the last day of the year. Just a reminder though....Thursday you will need a brand new license....we get to start all over again; this is when I will be out on the water - the first day of the new year... What a place we live...:dance:

Well she is a great wife and after all the Christmas goodies that she got me it is the least that I can do.
You mean that you don't have your 09 license yet?Don't delay!:D
I thinking that Sunday might be nice as far as the weather to break into 09.

Less than 50 feet from the Santiam River! :)
One last time....

One last time....

I am planning to get out on the Santiam somewhere along Highway 22. I went to the Jefferson rest area this morning after a short stint at Walter Wirth and it was blocked off by the state. I got quite an eyeful when I saw it from the freeway. It is so high that the parking under the bridge is under water.
Kodiak, if you don't mind me asking,can you suggest one or two places to try from the bank? I am thinking about going into Stayton under the bridge and then maybe Packsaddle. I picked up an 8'6" Shimanno at Wally World for just under $40 and filled my reel with 20# with 30# leader. I want to use coon shrimp according to most of the fisher folk here, do you (or anybody else)have any other ideas?
I REALLY want to thank all of you great fisher folk here for all the help this past year. Thanks Friends.

Who knows?! Not me!
How in the heck does an 08 license end in april???? I have always been under the impression that your license is only good from Jan 1 to Dec 31 no matter when you buy it....Am I missing something?!!

I forgot about the expiration today, but really have the itch to go out and do some fishing no matter how flooded things are. I went to the ODFW website and picked up my new angling license online, with a printable voucher so that I can go out without waiting for the actual document in the mail. If you need tags, you have to wait for the snail-mail to drop them off.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF MY OFF FRIENDS!

Happy New Year!

I did make it to Dexter yesterday,no rain,light wind but the water was up and murky.
I caught one rainbow below LookOut Point Dam on the upper end.
He was only one to be landed so I released him but it felt good to be out.

We should petition the State to change the name from Dexter to db2cool lake, at the least name the ramp after you...
I like fishing the back side of the lake, have you ever ventured in to that slew on the face of the dam ? Excellent Smallie world, never caught a Trout back there but plenty of Smallies and Pike Minnows.

Yes indeed,when the water warms up that is my bass hole.
Right below it on the right hand side there is a large shallow spot,if you drift a worm off the shallows into the deeper water rainbows will tear it up!
I let the worm drift off the bottom with no weight on the line.

On the left hand side never did have much luck with trout but great for bass.
I have caught some nice bass on that side down to the bridge and on the other side of the bridge.
I love winter fishing but I don't think that I ever had much luck with bass once the water gets into the low 40 degrees.

Nice to finely talk to someone that has had the same great luck on that lake as I have. A hidden Jewell of the Willy..we should really get together for a day of catching.....have a great day.
