I was at Waterloo yesterday screwin around. The water was up about 8 inches from the night before. There's a lot of fish in the water, a lot of people on the banks and boats. At one time, I counted about 30 guys in a 40 yard stretch down the river. I don't think the water's going to be going down for a few days, but I have my own theories on that.

Or maybe below the Lebanon break dam?

Not great steelhead water really.. even when we had the 2004 amazing run I only witnessed a few steelhead caught down in the water where they hold.. problem is the steelhead type of water down there is all private property. If you park at Riverview school and walk down, there is ok spot to fish. Caught a couple there in the past.

I had one on for a few and my buddy had two on but didn't land them. Another guy hooked into 4 or 5, but where we he was there was no real way past the fast water.
