Fished Swan Island to St. Johns area today. The water was colored with a lot of junk coming down. I managed a nice 20-25lb native on whole herring with a flasher. The weather was great once the fog lifted!!!
I Fished the mouth of wilamette up to the big bend. Had one take down on a rainbow herring spinner but dident hook-up. It was also slow i saw 3 fish caught between 7-2.Thank God for the hand held GPS i just bought it got me right in the wilmatte from 42nd st. without any problems. I know several people that went right on down river past the entrance.
We fished the head of the channel and the mouth of the river from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We only saw one fish caught - but heard of a couple others. Really sloooooooooooow indeed. But great day on the water. We tried whole and cut plug herring from shallow to deep, flasher to not. Anybody who got a fish today was blessed (and good). Tomorrow is yet another day.
