There is some I seen them myself. But yea a lot of people are trying to keep it hush hush shh shh. Which is fine by me... I am just waiting until we get a few days of rain then i'll go out and give it a shot until then I am just scouting and checking spots out.

they're all wild? Is that because no Hatch Coho go that high, or some other reason?

Who knows?! Not me!
Or it could be that when they were there, there were no fish. Seems like a viable option.


By the way, I took this yesterday at Bonnie Lure.

First, for those who have never been there outside of Coho season, here is what it looks like. Shocker right? I mean you can actually see the rocks on the bank, or walk without getting tangled in fishing line.

Now here's one of the water under the bridge. I know I know, I need a polarized lens or whatever.

And finally one from on top of the bridge, right down into the hole.

Point is, if "the coho were there", there would be people lining the bank, and you would see fish in the crappy pictures of bridge hole.

I think its safe to say, that when guys ask; "are the coho there", or when they say; "the coho arent there", they arent talking about 1-2 pods of native up river Coho. Mebbe Im just speaking for myself.

Im pretty sure they dont let any hatch coho above Rivermill. Im not sure where they release the hatch Coho. But I dont think they would release them above Eagle, as they dont want them to stray. I know some hatch Coho do shoot up past Eagle Creek, just like they do on the Sandy, and can be found at McIver and such.

Yeah went and cheacked eagle yesterday and there are no fish there yet. With the rain that we are getting though they are soon to come though. You might want to think that I'm trying to say that to keep it (hush hush) but remember I'm the blabermouth that ruins people secret spots, so you can bank on it that I'm telling the truth and they aren't there yet. They should be a good amount of fishies in there by monday morning though.

Guess what I'm doing on monday.

Trapped inside my own mind.
until this rain there werent any fish in EC, but there were plenty in the clack. been hooking fish for weeks in the lower clack but the rumor about fish below bonnie bridge last week was definitely all someones imagination. after these two days of rain I think its safe to say without even going to take a look that there are fish under the bridge, now.

HAHAHA, How dare you hide in the bushes and take pics, what is this? the fishing paparazzi?

Okay, to heck with the TCO photo contest. I am anouncing the First Annual Dude Young Commemorative Bad Photo-shop Memorial Thingy. Lets see just how redonkulous we can make this photo. Most silly wins a prize. Yep, that's right, BigDog is going to donate that un-holy mess he dug out of the river the other day. And I will dip it in some of the mercury I have collected form the Willy Sturgeon.:dance:

Good luck!

2 Questions

2 Questions

Are all the Coho in the Clackamas heading up Eagle Creek? -- or do some head up farther on the Clackamas toward Mciver?

Also will this rain bring in more steelhead?

Oops, that was three questions :)

Thanks

only a few strays make it up to mciver, your best bet is to fish below EC on the clackamas or in the creek itself.
Screw the old colored up summer steelhead its salmon time! If you want steelhead head to the columbia.

OK i'm kinda new to this hole Clackamas-EC-Sandy thing. I looked at that second photo real close and I did'nt see any fish in it. So what I really want to know is: Does that log really hold up that end of the bridge? Should we be calling the bridge inspection team? Maybe they will keep us posted about fish being below the bridge while they are fixing it!

No that log isn't holding the bridge, it got stuck there after the major floods that hit last year. They wiped that area out bad and changed everything, some of the changes were for the better and other not so good. That creek is a whole new game this year.
