That's real good news, 16,000 bright fish already! Is this real early for fish moving? I couldn't believe how early the Caddis hatch was on the McKennzie and was wondering last week if I should be greasing a line down stream. Water and weather gave me the feel there might be fish bigger than local rainbows near by.
Fun work and fishing all in the same day, Just might try the the 7wt or 8wt this week. I found a place on the Willamette between Corvallis and Eugene that looked like it was fishable, not being from down there I have not seen anyone flyfishing the river but the spot I found has an exceptional looking run perfect for steelhead.
