First round of water....

Well here we go, big rain followed by a week of cold... sounds like I woke up on Ground Hog day for another year here on the OP. Rivers should start fishing tomorrow and by the weekend some will be too low and too clear. (but not all)
Best part is heading out and finding all the changes and hopefully searching out the "new hot spots" after over 50 years of looking you get to have a feel for this line of work.

First winter fish are in the Alsea and Siletz, although I haven't caught any. Water conditions are good -- rain, but not too much -- and the salmon escapement should have been excellent, giving the steelies lots of eggs to munch on for their Thanksgving.

Steel feeding heavy on eggs and holding everywhere instead of moving up river. You can swing or other. About 100 fish a day coming home.

Just got permission to fish a 1/2 mile of private river front, only two others have that permission. Life as always is good.

Well we went from high water a couple of weeks ago to 14 strait days of sunshine. The biggest high pressure ever recorded has been hanging out, 1047 millibars off the coast.
One can walk across the Hood in a lot of places with no snow melt due to cold air up high. Fish have stopped coming into the river and the fish already here have hunkered down in the very deepest holes, one needs a submarine to fish for them. But the sunshine is just perfect. Putting in 7 raised veggie beds 8ft x 12ft each, all hand dug 16 inches deep with treated 2x8 on top sides and 1/4 " steel mesh lining beds to keep gophers out. Takes about 12 hours to build each bed so keep the sunshine going.
