The weather has finally broke in the George. Now we can get down to business. Contrary to odfw fishing has been very good in the pool. Action is great with many days of 40 plus fish. The keeper ratio is off this year due to the cold water temp. Deep water and lite rods makes for a great day. We are averaging 2 to 5 keepers a day depending on the west winds. The boat pressure is very lite. I have the boat moored in Cascade Locks and the fish checker finally found me today. It only took a month! Here are a few pics from this past week.

January got off to a great start. I had a day off and decided to take advantage of the clear dropping water of the Willamette. This is not seen very often as the Willamette pushes its banks in the winter months. Even though the action was slow we did manage to land a nice hatchery
with the new barbless rules in effect it did not seem to matter. In the George it was a bit different. As the new year came so did the east winds. The winds on Monday were way beyond fishable and that continued Tuesday through Thursday. Friday we finally got out and the winds were still screaming so we pulled the boat out and headed for Hood River. It was as flat as can be but we did not land any keepers. 40 fish. On Saturday we ended up getting a break from the winds and got some keepers as well as 50 shakers. This week is getting off to a rough start as the man is calling for big south winds that will continue to Wednesday morning.See you on the water Charlie Foster 503-820-1189
