Rivers of Mud- Big Rains Hit the Oregon Coast

Big rains have hit the Oregon coast and the river ups and downs have some folks a bit dizzy.  We’ve been working on the North Coast of Oregon chasing winter steelhead.  This week we were hit with a big front that caused rivers to sharply rise.  Fishing has been good but when fish can’t see your fly your out of luck.  Looking forward to the next drop as we head into the weekend.  Rivers should be dropping and clearing as we head into next week.

High water brings in the fish and as it drops and clears fishing should be good.  Here are a few fish from earlier in the week.
