Had an outstanding day at Walter Wirth on Saturday. I was able to limit, while my uncle and dad caught 4 and one respectively. Thay were all nice fat little rainbows. Much larger and fatter than I am used to seeing with stockers. Is this what I can expect at WW normally?

Was anybody else out there on that day? I did talk with a couple of older Russian fellows and a hispanic gentleman while I was there, shared some of my power eggs with them.

Also I had a funny happen. Lost a nice fish trying to put it on the stringer, took quite a fribbing on that one.

Has anybody heard about the cables cut to the grate that separates Wirth from the river........my brother was there and a guy told him that and that the fish from the lake went into the little stream there and salmon have been caught in the lake......i would go to snopes.com but for some reason I feel that information wouldnt be there :D ....just curious...

Does Mill Creek even get a return of salmon anymore? I know they did 20 years ago when they used to plant them there.

Slowing down

Slowing down

Looks like it is slowing down. Don't know when the next plant is either, the 2010 schedule isn't posted on the ODFW page yet. When iyt does get planted, I'll be there the following weekend.

Is it just me? The planters at Wirth seem bigger than I am used to...
