    Well I have been watching the fish counts and seems like we are getting 3-4 thousand fish over McNary dam dailey this week. I think I am going to hit the river this Thursday morning and see if we can't pick up one or two.

    Anyone else getting any out there?

    I spent two years in Seaside, beautiful country, good luck on the fishing. My biggest steel head was around 20 pounds. I have seen some big one in streams with nothing more than 6 inches of water and some good holes.

    Well no Steelhead, But caught a couple small bass and crappie,,baby perch or two...

    Blew a head gasket and dropped a rear driveline...shezzzzz. that trip was expensive...for no big fish..

    Wish you guys were here also. you could help me catch my first steel head.
