I'm planning on going after coho on the Sandy or the Clack this weekend. My current idea is to float from Dabney to Lewis and Clark. Most of the messages I've read indicate that the fish are much higher than this... So will I just be wasting my time?

With a 6 month old daughter, I don't get out to fish much, and I really want to take my drift boat. I don't feel comfortable taking my boat any farther upstream unless the water rises significantly.

Can anyone tell me what the water color is like?

Don't let the visibility put you off. It often clears up considerably by afternoon. With low water like this it's a good thing - the fish keep moving and aren't as spooky and holed up.

I'm curious too how many fish are yet to come. I know there are fish moving through the system but it seemed like there were ALOT less of them in the Dodge Park area today than Tuesday.

If anyone goes by the river today, I'd definitely appreciate an update on the water color. Thanks in advance.
