  1. I was down last weekend but never made it down to zone 2 at all. Fished up below the Holland dam and up at the spring. It was there the previous weekend though. Growing up, that would’ve been cut out the day after it fell. Seen it numerous times. Park maintenance just isn’t what it used to be.
  2. Good. Maybe it flushed out some of that green goo that was all over zone 1 and 2.
  3. Well, looks like it’s back to a bunch of little dinky trout again. Between Saturday and today, I must’ve caught close to 50 fish. The largest of them in either zone 1 or 2 was about 12”. Most were skinny as all get out. Caught a few that must’ve been full of guts though. Bloated as can be. Most of the fish I saw on stringers were all small, too. Im not sure where all these nice sized fish are, that the local tackle store is posting about on their reports are. Maybe in the bait area??? 🤔 Curious if anyone else has seen the same.
  4. Sometimes people just get sick while on road trips near great fishing locations. Just sayin😉
  5. If you’re gonna catch fish you gotta be bouncing the bottom. Try to fish out of the strong current flow if you can. There’s plenty of fish in there. Just find something that works and weed through the small ones. I caught enough fish over the weekend to keep some decent fish if I would’ve wanted too. 1 of about 6-8 fish was a decent fish. Most were skinny small fish. Not sure why they were as skinny as they were, but they were. A couple thing to keep keep in mind if you’re fly fishing. Fish enough weight to get your fly down quick. Mend your line as quick as you can and let the fly lead your strike indicator. That’ll get your fly down faster. As as long as they don’t get another drencher storm the stream should be in decent shape this weekend. Quite possibly, you’ll be able to use some smaller fly’s and might even see some top water action around 3-4 in the afternoon. I know I’ll be watching for it. Hopefully I’ll be down Friday night. Maybe Saturday morning.
  6. If you’re driving east on 64 and you still try to turn on 64A you deserve what you get. Nobody in their right mind would be driving fast enough pulling a 35+ft camper and try to turn there seeing all that stuff. If they’re headed west then they’re too dumb and drove past the main entrance. Besides that, there’s plenty of room to back up without backing into traffic on 64.
  7. Well, this should help the situation a little bit.
  8. Just a 3/4 ton pickup with a 12ft pop up would be over 5T. Hopefully people just follow the rules and don’t drive too heavy a trucks across it. If it’s in as bad a shape as you heard, then maybe they should close it.
  9. Why is that?? I’m thinking the bridge is just as strong as it was before it got damaged. They’re just trying to deter people from hauling big campers and such across it. If prople obey the weight rule it should last quite a while.
  10. Well, hopefully everyone with heavier rigs go around. Heck, just my 2003 Ranger and 12ft pop-up camper was pushing 7k. Just imagine a 5th wheel and 4X4 Dually diesel pick up combined. I saw a ton of people doing that before. I mentioned the weight limit to a guy I followed in one evening. He was pulling a big 5th wheel with a 1Ton Dodge diesel single rear wheel. He was at the check in office for the CG. His reply was comical yet sad. He said he’d been driving over that bridge for years with no issues. He also said he planned on driving over it as long as it was there, because he didn’t like straining his truck pulling his camper up that big hill at the main entrance. I asked him if his camper was to heavy for his truck. He had no clue. Said the salesman said he had plenty of truck to pull it. LOL Kinda makes you wonder how many folks actually know what their truck and camper combo weigh.
  11. I know a lot of 1 ton dually pickups are over 9000lbs empty. I could easily see one loaded at over 5T.
  12. Anyone know what it was before it got damaged??
  13. That's the problem with those managed hunts that are for population control. Most people are hunting for a once in a lifetime buck instead of killing deer to manage the herd. Make it an earn a buck program at least and it might help achieve their goal of reducing numbers. Still probably won't get the full targeted number, but it'll for sure be better than the results they just got.

    Fly only questions

    There are states that were felt ban that are going back to felt being OK. Like mentioned already, it's got something to do with phosphorus in the water. Supposedly, dydimo exists in pretty much almost every stream. But, phosphorus keeps it in check at the right levels. All the streams out here in Oregon are felt legal streams from what I've seen. The streams I fished in NY this past summer were dydimo positive streams and they all were allowing felt soles. The San Juan in NM is felt legal. All those streams are way more fragile than MO trout streams in my opinion. So much for those boot washing stations at Bennett Huh??
  15. Maybe the park concessionaire chipped in to hurry up the project......🙄
