Boat Troubles at Fall Creek Reservoir

Well here’s a older report that I never finished and published, will have quite a few more of these. So keep your eye out! 

Saturday the 4th of May I fished with TTFishon in his boat and GraphiteZen came along too. These are a couple of cool guys I met on the OregonFishingForum a few years back. The day started out real nice weather wise, a little windy but we didn’t mind that is until… We had motor problems and had to row back to the ramp, as you can see in the video. You can also see in the video a helicopter dunking a bucket for a near by fire that was going on. It sure helped to pass the time as I waited at the boat ramp with the boat. The other guys went into town to get tools to fix the motor. A Hour or two later we go the boat up and running and we managed to get a few trout to the boat. Only one being a hold over. But was still a great day on the water with some awesome company.

Thanks for reading/watching the video, and as always, Tight Lines!!!

2-1-2011 Rogue River and a Heli

The water has been lowering on the upper Rogue River lately, they started to reduce the flows from the dam, thankfully. Now with the water lowering from over 5,000cfs coming out of the dam, Tuesday had about 3,600 I believe. Each day in the paper they have the flows printed from the previous night. So with the river going back into shape i wanted to fish it! I went to the Denman Wildlife area, it’s a short drive about 7 miles so its nice to come to even if its only for a couple of hours. I only fished for about a hour and half before i decided to pack up and go home, the water was still a little high for my liking. Im still only using spoons, im trying to master this technique before learning others for steelhead, but if i have some one to instruct me in person on how to do a different technique id gladly learn. So i was packing up my stuff when i noticed a big bright yellow helicopter coming my way. My first thoughts were “is it going to land where im standing?”  luckily i figured out what it was doing after i sprinted to safety. Turns out the helicopter was just doing practice maneuvers with sucking up water from the river and near by ponds and dropping it back to where he picked it up from. It was really cool to watch, he did about five fly arounds and put on a great show for me!
