Juro, what makes it even better down here is you could put just short of the ENTIRE population of Jackson and Josephine Counties (Ashland-Medford-Grants Pass) into Seattle's Baseball and Football stadiums. A little "SRO" probably, but not much.
Lots of fish and darn little pressure except for extreamly public spots. Most of the "fishermen" around here will not walk beyond sight of their cars. Walk another 50 yards and the rivers yours. Even in the 'thick of things' it's not unusual to have only one or two people working over 500 yards of beach.
Life is good.
