What are the fisherman after this time of year that leave thier trailers for thier drift boats under the bridge on Belt Line ? I would love to hear Steelhead are in the river or Spring Chinook. I am handi capped and there are some parts of the river I can get to. That would be fun. Thanks qwapaw

Dang, you sound like me.
I'm a bit mobility impaired although not entirely.
I can walk but not real well or really far.
I was down to the river yesterday and spoke with a guy that was doing some drift fishing.
He told me this is a good time to start trying for steelhead.
Said their always in the river there but this is when he starts.
I'll probably start heading down there regular in the next week, once I can buy fuel again.

Just downstream of the bridge on the gravel bar is a good bankin' it spot; easy to get to as well if you have a vehicle.
Yeah, but if you drive out there, make sure you keep on the firm packed gravel. A lot of that bar is loose cobbles and without four wheel drive, well, I've pulled a couple of PUs out with my 4x4.
