first i hope i got the date right LOL. so today my dad had a run to tillamook aand offered to drop me off at the nestucca around hebo. i started out using a stonefly nymph with no hits for about 15 minutes. so i switched it up and went with a bead head hares ear... unfortunately the hook broke off on a rock.. so i pulled ot a bead head nymph i have not used yet that i got from HHM it looks like a bead head prince but the body is purple.. well, anyways after four cats in the same exact spot i had somthing tapping my fly. you could see the thingamabobber bobbing like somthign was nibbling. then it went under and i set the hook.. fish on!!! got a nice little fight from a little 7-8inch cutthroat popped the hook out and back in the water he went. i worked my way downriver to antoher little seam and standed there casting the same fly for about 10 minutes untl i finally had a bite.. and i missed it!!! once again wasn't paying attention.. cost me a fish . i continued fishing the same spot missing two more strikes until i finally set the hook at the right time and this fish took off! and even jumped like a steelhead . but at the end of my line was a pretty litte cutthroat easily pushing 12 inches. then i heard dad yelling my name and i had to pack it up and leave :lol: he said he was calling my name for about 5 minutes and was starting to get worried. guess i kinda zoned out. sorry for no pics i justy ordered a new camera so i will have pics again water conditions: the water was pretty clear and i didn'tbother stopping at 3 rivers it looked terrible.. wasn't the lowest it could be but it wasn't the best either. im sure just a bit of rain would make it just right and it would fish great im thinkin all the fish are way up higher right now or they are waiting way down low until it gets high again.. we need some rain!!!. ive been getting out a bit more lately and im starting to get the hang of it my roll cast is majorly improving and my back cast is a lot better to.
