I know they fish them in sections of The Snake... believe that to be the closest opportunity for me now? I tried fishing for them near Moses Lake some years ago - after seeing one of our members videos. I saw some mudding, but could not get anywhere close enough to make a cast. The water was flat and clear and they are a wee bit spooky. I cannot recall the guy's handle who specializes in this fishery over in the Columbia Basin... perhaps someone else knows? Suggest sending him a PM.

Not the video I mentioned, but this guy certainly found a honey hole. Fly looks like a Crazy Charlie pattern.

Cool video. I like Korn for the soundtrack. He does it like I do, even has the same boat. Row around until you spot tailing carp, ditch the boat, and stalk them on foot.

I have been reluctant but the Steelhead fishery is abysmal this year.
I live a quick jaunt from both the Sandy and Clackamas (20ish mins to each from my corner of PDX) and have landed one fish in about 8 trips. To say it's been abysmal is an understatement.

And those numbers are me fishing gear. If I can't catch them on spoons and centerpins, something's wrong.
