  1. ...Next month with a buddy to fish the Oak Orchard River for salmon and trout. Never been there but am really excited to go. Anyone ever fished there?
     
  2. I've not fished there, but I hear great things. Don't forget the camera!
     

  3. No, but make sure you fill us in!!!:mischeif:
     
  4. Ok, so I guess this is uncharted territory around here. :D

    Yes, I'll be sure to take pics.

  9. disappointing weekend

    No fish to show :(. This being my first trip for salmon I had high hopes, but the salmon were about done. The shores were full of dead fish and those that remained were in pretty sad shape. "Zombie fish" we called them. The water was down quite a bit and most anglers seemed to be targeting browns. I did see a few nice ones landed. One of my buddies landed a 20 lb. 14 oz. king. That was impressive.
    The stretch we fished was was almost literally shoulder to shoulder and the fish were pressured to say the least, esp. with the water being down. To be honest, I don't like that kind of fishing. Still, some guys were landing browns, steelhead, and an occasional king. None for me, though.

    There will be plenty more opportunities-that is a good area overall for Kings. We caught a couple of nice ones this august out in the lake as they were starting to stage.
