Knee deep in it
Made it our on the lower clack this afternoon. Water was up, rather muddy, but flow was good. I finally got my float and jig system worked out a bit. Got a new Okuma SST 10'6 rod and man that makes a difference on getting the 1/8"th jig setup to work right. The longer rod works wonders for me. Can't wait to figure out where those fishies are now and get to catching!!!

Just to clarify the above post the mouth of the Clack is in Oregon City, what you're describing is the mouth of Eagle Creek.

I'll try up there this saturday. Tonight the river looked like it might have peaked if the rain stays light. Not quite a muddy looking as yesterday, but still not much visibility. I have been down just below high rocks at about 4-5pm and there is a cool fog that rolls up the river about then. Its nice and peaceful, even though the river is high. Today a bufflehead floated by as I was casting. A cormorant flew by real low. It is just nice to be near the water.
