High water in & around Albany...
With a trip planned to start this weekend through Thursday next week, I have been watching the fish counts, weather, and flows daily for about 2 or 3 weeks (yeah, I know, little over kill). The weather forcast says that there should be rain for the entire trip, not a problem for me, but my worry is that that kind of precip will make the fishing...different.
My question for you all in the area is, we had settled to do the N. Santiam 1 or 2 days, the Siletz one day, and fill in the time on the N. Umpqua. Given the fish counts on the N. Sanitam and the potential high water on the coast, does anyone have suggestions for the trip that might alter my plans or should the above be good?
New info for us is that we (novice rowers) will have a boat and are looking for easy beginners drifts on said waters.
With the higher water, would these rivers be better fished in specific areas (higher up, lower, only on the 43rd parralel, etc)?
Thanks in advance guys, if you find yourself with a little time to kill, shoot a PM and join us.
