OK, I have a favor to ask of people in the know that fish the Nehalem. My soon to be father-in-law is coming up from Utah to go fishing for 5 days. We have had this planned for a while and when we made the plans I thought the 3rd week in August would be good for Zoo-ey 10 as I usually start fishing around then and do well. However, this year it's looking like it will start a little later. I'm still hoping it kicks in gear by next week but if it doesn't I would like to have a plan B. It sounds like Nehalem is the place to be right now but I know nothing about it. Could someone please share some basic information about this fishery? Specificly the do's and dont's about the area. I have picked up on staying away from the north jetty. What else do I need to know? I'm not even sure where to launch the boat :blush: . Any info, no matter how small, would be appreciated. I really want to get this guy into some fish. Like I said, I'm still hopefull for Zoo-ey 10 because I know that area well but if I need to change plans so be it. Take care all and thanks.
