My girlfriend and I have been fishing the north santiam since late June. We have traveled packsadle, fishermans bend, minto park and even Big Cliff. We have also fished at the Stayton bridge that leads to Scio. Every weekend we go out hitting the out turned pools and rapid ends. Trying everything in the book and what we have learned online. We have used worms, steelhead stalkers, float rigs eggs, bluefox spinners, bangtails and even Kastmasters. One bite in almost 2 months. Thats it. Not a single fish fought. Can any one help us? I just dont know what in the word is going wrong and it has gotten to the point where money has been deemed wasted and river fishing may just get tossed out the window all together. I have done extensive research and tryed everything. We can't even catch trout in the river. I just dont get it . Please someone help.
