I flyfished for springers on the Trask Sunday above Loren's Drift. Did not see a fish. There were four guys fishing bait in the hole and they had no action that I saw. The river is very clear and no fish to be seen.

I was inspired by Depoe Bay Dan's reports to try fishing from the rocks, so I stopped at the north jetty of Tillamook Bay on my way home. I caught one smallish black rockfish on a jig. The guy next to me fought a nice ling cod (well over 24") all the way up to the surface rocks, (including releasing all tension several times waiting for the fish to swim back out from holes in the rocks), only to have the ling swim away just as it was being grabbed. The ling cod was not hooked at all but was only clamped on to a 12" rockfish that had taken the jig. If they had had a net they would have had a ling cod.
