in a van down by the river....
Once again I chased rumors of a mythical creature called "steelhead". Beaver Fan and I wandered the entire fishable length of the Wilson today to no avail.
Water was absolutley incredible! except no fish =( Used: jigs,spinners, free drifts, plastic worms, roe I even tried the dark side of the force. nothing. Elusive are these fish.

Have you guys ever heard of the gambling rule, never bet on your favorite team? The wilson is an amazing river, and obviously Beaver fans favorite river.... But the wilson seems to be a little hard on the beaver lately.... If you guys had gone to the nestucca, necanicum, or clack you might have got a fish, but you decided to follow 8 guys through all the same old wilson river holes.. Brake out of the box Beaverfan.... go find some new water... the wilson is not good to you, You are like Bill Murry in groundhog day.... every week, same river, same jig, same hole, same expectations.... same result. Tell me what day of next week you have time... were going fishing, and not to the wilson. Im gonna show you how to kill a skunk.;)

Knee deep in it
I have a nasty skunk that needs killing also. I'm headed up to eagle creek in the morning if anyone wants to meet up and learn me something. I'll be in a dodge minivan and will have a black/gray backpack on.
