March and April: Steelhead, Rock Cod, and Red Bows.
Jesse Yonally came into town from Tavres, Fl for some late Winter action and caught some "toad" natives. On the right, Scott Allred with an Alsea chromer that he poached from above the deadline. He and I fished a couple times a month over the course of the winter and seem to always do well.
Jesse fished for 2 days on the Alsea with his Sage SLT 4wt before his 7wt arrived. He landed 8-10 steelhead with it including this deep, chrome native.
Scotty and I battling for numbers on the Alsea!
Newport has been killer at night. I have been frequenting the Rogue Brewery and slaying Rock bass all night. I have been averaging around 30 of these beauties per trip in hopes of something over 4lbs..... They are a good tug of war on an 8wt and a rippin tide.
I find the white clouser with lots of body and a stinger hook work the best!
