Hello fellow ifishers! Haven't been on the water in so long I should be locked up in a rubber room with all the withdrawal symptoms I'm having! The future holds promise though as I have a weeks vacation with the family the 2nd week of September. :dance: The first few days will be spent down by the Umpqua and that is where I need the help. I have never been there let alone fished it. I've been told that will be a good time to be there, now all I need to know is where can a bank bound angler bobber fish down there and have a reasonably good chance at getting into some nice nookie? I'm inquiring about bobber mainly because my father-in-law will be with me and hat is the simplest method to fish with him. Kind of hard to wonder if you got a bite or not if the bobber goes down! :smile: I'm open to other suggestions as well. I also need help from anyone who may know a good place to stay down there. Right now my wife and mother-in-law have us staying in Coos Bay because it's about $60 cheaper per night. Anyone know of a place in Reedsport that would be around $150 or less?? We have our 4 children and my in-laws would be with us as well. Any ideas or input are appreciated! I already know the campgrounds are out as the wife is hoping for someplace nice, maybe even with a hot tub or pool. Oh, and if anyone knows someplace to try for those hyped up smallies down there I'd be open for that too!! :smile: Heck, I may just have to sneak off for a day by myself! :laugh: Thanks for your help and your time folks!! I'll be sure to post the "results" of the trip along with any pics when we get back. God Bless & Tight Lines!
