How early do winters show up on the Siletz? The earliest I've caught winters on this river is the beginning of January. Of course, that is the earliest I've tried. I usually do the town float and was thinking of giving it a try in mid December. Will I just be wasting my time? I'm going to pick up my new bobber and jig rod today (Berkley IM7 on sale at GI Joes) :dance: and I don't know how long I'll be able to wait. On the other hand, I'll only have time to make 4 - 5 trips this winter and I don't want to squander one.
