Headin out in a week or two... Hope the steelies will be running strong. I am already tying leaders... :rolleyes: and I cleaned/respooled my reel with 12lb maxima ug (I finally took AA's advice ;)). I cured some more shrimperdoodles, and have eggs... Got spinners, gonna get nightcrawlers and pink plastic worms for a try. All I need is a good place where I can hook something. I dun have waders though. Havent caught a fish since.... november....:rolleyes: besides this tiny 2.5 inch silver fish thing I caught with my hand in a tide pool in hawaii and released it back into the real ocean with its buddies. I need a steelhead!

After this rain, all of the coastal rivers should have good numbers of winter steelhead in them. Are you near the wilson or trask? If so I've heard they are a good choice.

I'd try...

I'd try...

Schooler I'd try fishin' in the water. I've occasionally found them hitchin' for a ride around a couple of nasty runs but those fish don't bite real well, and it's tough to get a good drift on the asphault. I've tried in the trees a time or two this year but it's pretty snaggy, and when you do hookup it's tough to get them outta there.

Hey man, the UltraGreen is just about everyones favorite when you just want to keep it deadly simple. I would hit the Clack as well, if you can swing Eagle Creek, and not get wet, you will have better luck up there. Mill City, Kodiaks location is a good hike East of Salem, pretty long stretch for parents to cover if they are not as enthused as you are.

Ahh, finally, the person I was waiting for... :rolleyes:;)

Yeah, I really want to head to the creek, but I do not know any of it, or conditions because I havent been there...
If I was to go to the creek, I need to know what the area is like. Are there trails everywhere like cedar creek or is it all chompin through the bushes? I guess I'll have to go on a search and slay kind kind of pattern. And hope I dont get wet...
