Mgdguy and I are planning on being there around 6:30. Depending on who drives, I think it's my turn, it will be a green Jeep (me), or a blue minivan (can't remember the make of his rig).

I'm not sure exactly where we will start though. I think the Naked Lady Drift was where we were going to start, and then work our way in if need be.

As far as what to bring, I'm still figuring that out. Spinners, drifting some fake eggs, and perhaps even a jig or two under a bobber is what I'll be trying.

Dude it's an Xterra. That's just mean :naughty:

:lol:

Yeah, that ;)

LOL, I looked it up, and it's not a van at all. Well, I never do get much sleep the night before, so I get a bit punchy.

I've never fished Oxbow before! Mind if I join you and learn from the masters?

Come on out, but I don't think there will be masters among us. We can learn and be foolish together though.

Sounds OK to me. I will not likely get there at 6:30, seeings how I'm coming from Hillsboro, I'll be looking for your rigs from my gray Tacoma 4X4.

Later,
GD

Greetings.

I hope that was a nice trip and you got some hookups.

I would like to have published a yearly map of
all the sandy river fishing spots including their colorful names.

I would do all the leg-work myself along with the picture taking.

Anyhow - Hope the trip was good.

Spent 6 hours in the park seeing only one fish landed. I met Anyfishisfine and spent some time loosing line with him. The fish were flying up river where we were and nothing we through at them did much at all.

I came home wooped! All my line was tangled on the bait casting reel, the lead is in the river and the fish are upstream.

I spent the rest of the day looking at Cedar Creek area and Dodge Park. Met a guy at Dodge Park who only uses Blue Fox spinners and tagged 29 coho last year from the Sandy. He said he landed 50 all together but some were natives and had to be let go. It was a little hard to understand him though, he had a broken jaw which was wired into place. Does he sound familiar to anyone.

It was frustrating watching those fish laugh at us, but I think the jumping on the log and 9-iron had a lot to do with it too. Cold and rain will cure that.

I know just who you are talking about. I met him last year he travels with a box full of all sort of collor foxes and yes that is all he uses. Nice guy to I fished with him a couple times. I'm going to have to hit the sandy next weekend and see if I can catch up with him.
