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
