You win santiam! Thats a nice looking fish. Everybody go fish the south now, no point in fishing the north.

Sometime in the next month or so I am coming to the North to see what its all about..Maybe I can wrap my boat around a rootwad or something..

:)

Seriously.the North,South Molalla and Calypooia fish are pretty much all the same and are by far the prettiest fish around,at least I think so...They are also my favorite to catch,I just don't fish them enough cause I also like to bring a fish home every now and then..

But as the coast rivers start to slow down I will be changing that...

No worries, we have plenty of those and lots of rocks to do it. On a serious note tho, let me know if you do plan on floating the North. I'll give you a heads up on anything to watch out for. We had our first boat sink last saturday, probably wont be the last either.

Thanks and I will take you up on that..

I sank a drift boat once...Back in 79...I just can't remember if it was 1879 or 1979..:think:

No matter..What I do remember is it wasn't any fun...I have not come close since..;)
