Landed three colorful little scrappers this morning. Got them on the Nestucca using bobber/jigs.Awesome day and had the river to myself.
Huh? "Lesser fished"?
The nestucca is an extremely heavely fished river... but its a jem, and a lot of guys willing to make the trip all the way out there are not going to post a great day.. I have known the tucca to be going red hot and its a week or two before any of the forums really report on it.. even the guide report often leaves it out, so you are not incorrect in assuming its under fished, because it recieves less press. The beginner rivers like the wilson, clack,N F nehalem and sandy all constantly have reports becouse new steelhead fishermen have not quite figured out what a report of a good day today, will do to your day the day after tommorrow... the tucca, trask, kilchis, e.c and a host of other rivers are basicly not spoken of... becouse they contain a core group of anglers who are more expirenced and do not include all the details of a succesfull outting.He said he had the river to himself, so I'd say that makes it less fished than places where this is not the case.
Unless I'm missing something about the meaning of having something to yourself.
Anyway most reports tend to be the bigger rivers. There aren't may reports about this river, and it is an interesting river to me because I grew up in that neck of the woods.
