    So I spent six days fishing the Siletz river last week .
    It was a good relaxing vacation but no fish .
    Only a few fish caught when I was there .
    I got a nice coho but had to release it . can't keep COHO on the SILETZ RIVER.
    Also have a CHINOOK on but was released by accedent veia the net .
    Lol got it to the boat but it got out of the net and left the hook in the net.

    Dang, six days of fishing with no fish would be a bit hard to take.

    The fish are not coming into the river they are hanging outside In the ocean.
    They probably coming in now with the rain .
    But too late for me.

    If you're with good company, doesn't matter.
    There's more to it.

    We'll be hittin' the Deschutes up in the canyon this weekend (summer steelhead).
    It's fast water fishin', chest waders, oh yeah.
    We'll probably get some.
    But even if we didn't, it would still be a good time.

    Beer, tequila and whiskey will warm up the evenings.

    That's why it's called fishing and not "catching".

    There was guy's at camp going up river and catching a few fish.
    But the boat we had could not go up river.
    18 foot Huges craft .and can't go outside the bay .
    With out taking the boat out and putting it back in at depot bay and running north to the outside of the siletz bay
