Nestucca help

My Oregon River Maps book shows the Nestucca peaking this month for summers. I'm meeting a couple buddies for a few day's fishing, but don't know the river--let alone the buckets. Can anyone help me at least select the best drift for this time of year? We'll have a drift boat and all kinds of time.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. If anyone wants to give up the buckets, I'll take that too!!!

drift to take

You can try First Bridge Launch to Farmers or go all the way down to Cloverdale Launch for a really full day.

Be prepared for crowds if you go on weekend, best to do during week days, call Nestuctta Valley Sporting for shuttle service.

Nestucca

You might want to get into contact with Rich Youngers in Salem. He owns Creekside Outfitters and should be able to point you in the right direction.

nestucca

Just came from there. Not a ton of steelhead in the river, so we switched gears to focus on salmon. The obvious spots always had someone fishing in them. We focused on the tailouts and less obvious slots that the bait dunkers leave alone. We had moderate success. There is a bait shop right in Hebo, he doesn't cater to fly guys at all but he usually can tell you where the fish are at. He told me a hundred times Nestucca fish don't bite flies. Typical bait guy.
I just read the guys blog he says more steelies are showing up. Good luck, Flint

Unhappy hindsight makes choice easy

Well guys,
Had a dismal PM, so we opted for the Santiam. Probably a bad choice. In two day's effort, we had one fish on. Found some nice cutthroat though. Nice setting, and GREAT to get away for a couple days. It was amazing to have to leave the rain in the desert for sunshine in the Willamette Valley!

Thanks for the input help. Next year the early June trip will be to the river why.
