    Now that I got your attention with a catchy title, Bhudda, Tightline and I will be camping out on the OP from March 9-13. This would be a great opportunity to get out to the OP, meet some people, make some friends, and catch some steelhead. All are welcome!
    We'll be staying at Copper Mine Bottom Campground on the Clearwater River, which is free. We'll be fishing the Clearwater and the Queets, and probably the Sol Duc on the way out on Sunday. The weather looks good, and the steelhead should be cooperating. I hope that a few of you can make it, the more the merrier. And remember, there is always a warm beer and some cold chili at our camp for anyone who wants it.

    That's just plain wrong Andy. I was hoping to see some fish porn too. Think we may have to put you on a time out for that. :rofl:

    Good luck, hope you guys have fun.

    I've got 4 replies in 30 minutes, so my trick worked.... I am just getting the fever again, so steelhead beware!!!

    Until you've been in my position, you would never know how lucky you are to be living where you do. Don't take anything for granted (like wild steelhead) cause they might not be around forever....

    I have to drive 4 hours minimum to find any quality trout fishing, so a trip like this will make my year. I think it would be cool to get a bunch of guys out there so that I can share my good times with some good people.

    Brian hasn't pussed out yet, I know that my positive thinking has gotten me into trouble before, but I don't think he will this time. I am secretly hoping for a repeat of OP party 2003, when he.... well, you all saw the pictures.

    We both need to let loose for a few days. We are both engaged to teachers and slipping into the domestic "situation" and need to get back in touch with our fishing roots. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else that week.

    Dang right I'm not out. Planned fishing trips are made, come hell or high water. There are some things you just don't mess with. bawling: And I'm sorry, but there will never be a repeat of the Oly fling. I have built my tolerance to unbelievable proportions. :clown:
    Andy, any luck on an extra boat?

    Brian,

    Does this mean that you have planned on bringing extra shirts and towels along for breakfast hour?

    :confused:

    I have one boat secured, and I might be bringing one on the plane, but I can't find a third boat for us. I think we might be able to fit two of us on the Power Drifter. Maybe you should bust out the zodiac.

    I might be up for a trip out that way, but probably wouldn't show up until Friday night. I also might be able to help you out with a pontoon boat. PM me if you're interested.

    I think you have already left Calibeatis, but we'll be in a red ford ranger, I think. I cant remember what Tightline drives, but stop by our camp at night.
