I am assuming Sea Run Cutts. Roostertails and other similar inline spinners, or free floating a whole nightcrawler or crawdad tail, sometimes with a small split shot for deeper runs. Use to catch bullheads on lower coastal rivers, skin them, cut body into chunks, and fish like a peeled crawdad tail, cutts ate it up, and bait lasted for several fish.

Just my 2 cents but if your fishing in a catch and release only fishery I think most would agree that the use of bait tends to do more harm and the fish tend to take the bait much deeper resulting in more harm/death to the fish. Barbless hooks are also better in these fisheries.

I would totally agree...... small spoons and spinners with single barbless hooks...... no reason to deap throat a cutt if it's C&R fishery onlyl...... have fun and treat all SRC's with the upmost care....

Living on one of those coastal cutthroat rivers. I would have to say with the water temperature climbing into toxic at this point the best option would be go fish the Clackamas River above Estacada for some nice resident trout living in fairly cool water and leave the coast alone until we see some serious rain, about October.

Having fished for this run of fish for the better part of 35 years and living in the area that I do water temperatures and the algea bloom are a serious issue for not only the trout species but also the wild steelhead, coho and others that are rearing in many of the larger holes that attract fish.
