Grabbed a friend for dawn patrol this morning before the day got busy and found a little hatchery buck.
spent yesterday fishing with Joe Mello (reelmellofishing) put a hurt on them hooked 16 landed 11 here's a few pics
River Forks Park has great bank access but the rest is all private property.
Ah yes, private property, the bane of the bankie.
How's the fishing at the park? Also, is up river by Whistler any good? I'm looking for new water (if you couldn't tell), the last couple trips to my usual spot there was virtually no one catching fish.
count one for my boat...
Buddy and his girlfriend came to visit hoping to get him his first time on the sticks and her first steelhead.
He made a few bankies mad by rowing across their water.... but he did pretty well overall.
And she hooked and landed her first steel on her first trip chasing them.
Busy day on the river yesterday. Didn't get to fish all of my preferred spots but managed to hook this nice native fish. Looked to be 28" based on my net. Nice to get my "tug" fix.
I always attempt to fish away from the crowds, hard to accomplish sometimes.The rivers around Roseburg are so ridiculously busy I was tempted to stop fishing weekends. Fortunately I was able to fish a stretch with the sled that gets relatively little pressure.
Not the most productive stretch but I'd rather catch a couple fish with no other boats in site than float a 6 mile stretch with 30 boats pounding every hole.
