Took friday off. Drove down to Albany, picked my brother-in-law up and then headed on to Eugene & took a left, up toward the Willamette National Forest. Spent the weekend camping & fishing a couple different rivers (Falls Creek, Middle Fork North Fork Willamette, and something else I actually don't remember the name of..) Being complete newbs to the area we ended up moving around a lot, but to no avail. Water was clear, hatches were plentiful, but there didn't seem to be any fish. Wrong sections of the rivers? Too early/late? Who knows... weather was awesome, beer was cold, and it was three days I didn't work. There's places up here where I usually have luck, but we're trying to find stuff in Oregon. He recently moved to Albany & so we're trying to find new places down there. I get the impression that the fly shops are all about steelhead fishing, but that's good too, as I've been thinking of giving it a try & if the fly shops keep pushing him to steelhead, I'll have a partner in crime. Oh, sorry, there's really no point here, if it's not to brag that I got out. Cheers.
