Hi all! I am looking forward to chasing some steel this winter, and am going to be going to do some scouting of the North Santiam and the Alsea in the coming weeks. They are the two rivers, aside from the S. Santiam, that are closest to where I live. I was wondering if anyone out there had much to say about the Alsea. From what I am gathering, the Alsea is supposed to be a really good fishery. I am wanting to use my drift boat, but am unsure about what to expect, especially during the winter months. Any insight about what kind of conditions to expect, or the best put in/take out points would be much appreciated. Thanks.
