So i spent the day with my pa and a good buddy out on the siletz river today. Only one fish caught but i believe this run is just startin. Could be wrong about that, but i've never fished it for steel before. I'll be goin back though! Beautiful river, and very few people. My buddy got his fish just above the bridge in some really shallow water.Got it on his own spinner, silver and pink. If you havent fished this river, the bridge is up above moonshine park a few miles. Sorry, no pics of the fish, but it was about 6/7# and as chrome as could be! I'll try to keep OFF updated on the Siletz, as i plan on fishin it quite a bit.

Beautiful river

Thanks for the report on another beautiful river. Two years ago my son and I watched a boat with four fisher folk in it reel in six big chrome beauties. It was down by Coyote something or other. I have never fished at Moonstruck,but then,I've never caught anything in the Siletz,either. Please do keep us all posted on the run,who knows? you may meet a bunch of new fishing buddies.
Be safe.

The best fishing in there for summer metal has come and gone, the better action now will be closer to the trap...Nice job on the fish!

so where is the trap sir?

up the river a bit but not all the way.:rolleyes:Ok not that funny. The trap is just below the falls...big help I know...I think it is about 8or nin....hey look a fly....think I'll go fishing. Enough clowning around, its above moonshine park about...hey you kids give the nieghbor lady back her bikini top in a couple of minutes...you understand me?!:mad: What were we talking about? Oh ya, going fishing at the trap on the siletz this weekend, you comming?...Maybe if I gave you directions. Its like nine miles above moonshine, telling someone how to get there is kinda difficult if you haven't been there before. I would get on Google earth and back track from the falls until you find moonshine then write down the directions from moonshine up, really nice water in there, I'll be on the santiams this weekend...Good luck!

Where is the Siletz Located and how far away of a drive is it from Gresham?

I've been getting reports that the Siletz isn't worth the drive....

Siletz will get good again in october when the rains begin to show up, right now the wter is warm and the fish are in hide and survive mode.
