Fishing Report 4/20/04
We are still catching winter Steelhead. Last week we had 3 trips and we hooked 23 fish size form 8 to 15 lbs. Some were down river fish and some were up river fish in great shape. Yesterday we hooked and landed 3 Steelhead. One was a down river fish and two were nice bright fish weighing 9 lbs and 12lbs. On Sunday we got a 15lb. Spring Chinook. Spring Chinook fishing has been slow. If we get rain the river will rise and that will bring up more Springers. All the rivers in the area need rain to get the Springer fishing going. It is raining now and we just hope it will rain more for us. I have heard of reports that some shad are being caught also.
Now is the time to get your Springer and Shad trips booked.

The first 1/2 of March we were doing very well on winter steelhead with many big fish in the high teens. On the North and South Umpquas. Now we have switched over to the North Umpqua and will remain there till the end of April. At the present time fishing is a bit slow the water is too low and clear and the fish are hard to get.
