    We did the Lost Coast (Mattole - Usal) with a group of Scouts in 2015, what a fabulous trip. Virtually every little stream in that stretch had steelhead and coho fry and smolts in them. It was...

    I remember catching several in the Applegate while chasing steelhead a few years back that I thought might have been sea run- leaner and more silver than the ones we catch above Touvelle.

    I’d echo Jason - especially on Pit 5, which I fish more often. It’s more like a smaller lower Sac, riffles and deeper, slower slots that the fish hold in.

    What are the winter flows like? I...

    Thanks for all the detail, Bob! I used to fish Pyramid 10-20 days per year, but haven’t been out there in probably 15 years - not since a couple of years before the Pilot Peak fish started becoming...

    It’s probably been 25 years since I last got broken into in the Parkway, but I don’t leave anything worth stealing in view either.

    Is 96 closed at that slide? When I was up there in November the signs said it was closed, but they were actually letting controlled traffic through. Has that changed?

    Anywhere in the Cascade Lakes area is a winner, but PV is right - the Metolius is something special (and a challenge). You’ll be a bit late for the Salmonfly hatch on the Deschutes, but will...

    They come up a bit on eBay, I’ve picked up backup 508’s and 506’s recently. They were both in like new condition, but expect to pay well upwards of $300 for them unless you’re lucky.
