Oregon rivers are getting a much needed shot in the arm as far as water levels go. Over the weekend a strong storm front moved into the N. Oregon coast and dumped a load of rain. Rivers on the north coast shot up and blew out from the heavy rains and are now on the drop. As they clear and drop into shape fishing should be excellent.
Before the rain a long dry spell made fishing tough. Low and clear water put fish on high alert and fooling fish required a stealthy approach and excellent presentations.
Here is an early January 2014 steelhead caught by Ken.
