The spring fun is finally slowing down, easily hundreds of fish this year, never seen it before but the fish were chasing what I imagine is some kind of smolt. They absolutely will not touch any baits that don't resemble them, been a terrible year for the ned, Alabama rig, and jig

Been focusing mostly on river forks but also been on the south and further down the main. Still prefer forks but you gotta watch out for the wind in the afternoon, gets pretty sporty

It hit 98 degrees that day in Roseburg. We fished until 8:00 am, starting at 6:00 am. Then home to the AC! šŸ˜€

Hey N! Where are you putting your kayak in at Umpqua? I looked all over Elkton and Roseburg but couldn't find one

River forks park usually, the rivers are low so it's a little tough to find a ramp thats still wet! Or that provides any decent fishable water
