Over in the Steelhead forum I posted a query about getting started fishing streams. Since I'm sticking with trout (instead of getting a Steelhead tag), I'll post my report here. And by report, I mean my list of miserable failures. I went to the Nestucca, a little north of Hebo. I worked lures and salmon eggs. Early on a I had one small trout follow a lure and I saw them jumping, but caught nothing. I lost two rooster tails, one Panther Martin spinner, one Rebel Crawfish, and one fly. After a couple hours it was just getting too expensive to keep fishing so I went home. Back to the lake for me! I'll need to regain my confidence before returning to the river!
