Well, you are in luck. Living in Eugene you are an hour away from great steelhead fishing. You can head west and hit the Siuslaw and Lake Creek. If you head east you can hit the Mckenzie and Willamette, to the north the Siletz and Alsea. I hope this helps.

Welcome to the forum, lots of good advice here. The Siuslaw and Lake creek are the two closest rivers to Eugene with winter steelhead. The Siuslaw gets a good run of hatchery fish, but also get's a good amount of pressure, as does Lake creek. There is lots of public access on both rivers.

wow!!!

wow!!!

:clap: I have yet to land a beauty such as that!!!, I am still learning the rigging for steelhead anyone know of a decent site where it shows pictures/videos of tying on yarn and a drift setup????? I have been searching but a lot of them seem so impractical. I wouldn't mind seeing how to rig up Corky/Yarn and how set up a Pink soft worm, also I would like a good site on steelhead behavior, a low down on go/no go situations. How the they hit where they typically hold up etc. etc. I think that I still havn't quite layed down the yeh' ole' Bass pole quite yet, love the tactics side of fishin!:D

Nice fish man! The steelheadstalkers website show you how to tie up all kinds of knots and setups. Not sure if its moastly float fishing tutorials but its worth a look. And there was a thread on here called the 10 percent rule or something that might help. Search this site and there are somethreads specific to drift rigging. Youtube also can be helpful.
