I was wondering how accessible Oxbow park is. Last year I fished Cedar Creek for Coho. However tommorrow my girlfriend wants to come and I dont think she could handle crossing the sandy at 5:00 am. Is Oxbow just as treacherous? Also I have no eggs (yet)
What color corkies and yarn do the Coho love. Thank you for the help TM-

Not sure about the yarn color part but Oxbow is very accessible it is a family park area. Nothing like cedar.

Remember not to be at Oxbow at 5am.. cause youll sit an hour plus at a locked gate.

If you really want to catch fish on the Sandy, the you need to fish pink.

Water has been good for over a week..

I sorda disagree.
I was there the other day and it was REALLY murky.
Couldnt see your lure more than a couple of inches.
I was hoping to see if that had improved.

That's as good as you are going to get on the sandy until it gets a lot colder..

It's bad now because it is clear. I was good when vis is a foot or less. Fish are in there and you trigger a reaction strike when they see a spinner infront of their nose. They have no time to think about it or examine your lure. They just hammer it! Trust me I had 6 fish on in 2 hours when the water was like 8-12" vis - 2 weeks ago. Last year I limited 3 times in less then 2 hours fishing water that had almost no vis. All spinners. Fun times.
