You're on a roll! (I am too :D) This season is great :cool:

thankyou! thats fer sure... has been awsome!!!! i was so torn on where to go this morning because i called sandy fish and tackle and got the fishing report 503-668-5791 is usualy pretty accurate but a day behind it seems like. i just chose to go to my honey hole and it payed off. cedar creek and above should really get hot! with this new push of fish coming up. im thinking of trying the salmon river here in the next few days... might be productive????
any way thanks again and good luck to you and keep slayin em!

Look like you guys are having a good time out there. I'm going to see about hitting it tomorrow. You got my interest up when you mentioned the Salmon River (Sandy system). I really like that place. I might be all wrong but that river is only open from July 1 to August 31. If I am wrong I'll shut up and grabb my fly rod and head for Welches!;)

Those dates are correct. I checked out the regs about it last April but didn't get out to fish it.

I do hope that river opens up again and not just in July to August when we are down at the coast catching coho. I like that river because it's small has some great holes with clear water for great sight fishing. It's also beautiful country.
There is a somewhat new area on the Sandy up by Marmot. The BLM aquired the land on the Sandy across the road from the old Koch Ranch. I haven't fished it yet myself. I was up there a few years back helping a guy who was usuing goates to clear the brush. It's mostly pocket water but with a good set of waders and boots on it could provide some good fishing.
