I have been to the Waterloo bridge seems like a good spot just has some heavy current. I was just thinking bobber and jigs but am not sure I have yet to catch a steelhead or salmon "I am mostly a bass guy"
OBP Turtle 33 said:ok I may check it out, my problem now is choosing between filling my last Turkey Tag at my parents house or using that gas to look for some fish getting 14 mpg in my truck doesn't leave much room for adventure lol Thanks for the info

I tried bobber and eggs and shrimp with no luck. I had a hard time gauging the depth of the pool I was fishing so who knows. Saw dozens of fish jump around my bobber, just to fuel my fire. Next time I think I'll target summer steel. Anyone have any tips on summer steel bait that works good on the Santiam?

Those guys drive me crazy.
Sandshrimp, prawns, cooked shrimp, eggs all work well for steelhead.
I'm just lucky enough my buddy brings me about 50-100 or so fresh sandshrimp every time he comes over! WOOT!
