I think I fish, in part, because itís an anti-social, bohemian business that, when gone about properly, puts you forever outside the mainstream culture without actually landing you in an institution. ĖJohn Gierach

Checked in Denver

48 lbs of fishing gear and a box with 4 rods as well as a back pack with a few clothes and all my reels and spools , fingers crossed they all make it

Have a great trip. More than a bit envious. Hoping that Salmon 2 gets to scream a bit!

Save for the very low end of a river there won't be a heck of a lot going on fish run wise.

Chinook?

I almost never attempt to catch spring Chinook, but there are scads of them coming into the lower Columbia and Willamette basins right now. Many more Chinook than steelhead are in the rivers. Since you are here, you might as well give them a shot - Sandy or Clackamas would be good venues. I haven't a clue how to catch them, but I hear that early in the day, slow deep water, they can be had. Locally, winter steelhead are spawning or spawned and the summers seem to either be late or low in numbers. That is, steelhead fishing is s-l-o-w. I'd bet that a goodly number of those dink trout you've seen are really steelhead smolts. It is surprising how large a fly they can stuff in their mouths.

Glad to hear it Wayne
Hard to beat vacations/trips involving our passion !!

Good to hear that it doesn't take a dozen mid-teen fish per day for you to have fun !!
You have it dialed in man - friendship/camaraderie, discovery of new waters, the heritage, scenery and thrill of the chase ..... these are things that fuel the passion ... I'd fish with you any day !!
