Well, Things slowed down for us Sat compaired to Thursday fishing the Trask. We lost 1 at 8am, I hooked a pig of a fish that tried to spool me and after running me all over the hole and down stream came off as I was trying to turn it. :hoboy: Thats fishing. Saw a couple ******* released and the last fish I hooked was about 12lbs and on its way to boothood...Slow was the word I got from everyone else, didn't stop by the guide shop to see how the Wilson did. Water was high, but still in great shape/color. 1 last try this week for me...Bobber eggs/shirmp bait.
:cheers:

where you in tidewater or in the river? I am thinking about the tidewater but like you I have only heard slow reports compared to the nestucca and the wilson?

In the river....A few guys who fished in the tidewater at 1st light came up around 11am and said they only saw 2 caught. I think...rather realy think with the high water these fish are moving through quickly and I am going to fish higher next week (maybe hatchery area??) The Wilson would/could be a good spot to go fish up higher also. Alot of people think that the higher you go, the less of a chance you have of getting a chromer...Wrong!!!! We caught a sea-lice fresh hen higher than you would think on Thursday showing/telling me that this fish are moving realy fast and they are not staying in an area very long. Not many jumpers all week tells me this also. Just a theory...
:shrug: I'm no expert but this is what I believe is happening. Later in the week with sunshine and water dropping then I would try again lower in the deep pools for some fresh fish. I only get one more chance this week b/f vaction for a week...(bummer) Hopefully there will be a few left when I come home and then bring on them winter steelies!!!! :dance: Yahoooooo!!!
Tight lines and set that hook hard and deep!!! :wave:

Higher up on the Wilson, the chinook tend to be a little on the dark side but there are chromers every once in awhile. Bright steelhead are catchable high up throughout the winter, even into march. Good luck.
