    Has anyone here ever fished the coastal rivers for cutthroat trout. I'm looking at heading that way this weekend and was wondering if anyone had some pointers.

    I have had pretty good luck with black roostertails on most rivers down there.

    What rivers are you thinking of? Do you fly fish or spin fish? Many varieties. Try something small/dark. With low clear water you don't want something to spook the fish.

    Like one poster said rooster tails. Or bobber/jig: small 1/8oz black/red, black, etc.

    Flyfishing: Always done real good with a prince nymph or try to match a fly to the different types of bugs around.

    If you want to cheat...grab a couple of those snails down by your feet and crush then put on your hook. *read bait laws though.

    Well I was hoping to fish for some sea run cutthroat last weekend on the yuquina or siletz. I found out I was a bit early need to wait until early next month. We did throw the crawdad trap out on the siletz and did fairly good. I will try to go back in a few weeks and try again.

    I've been out probably a dozen times this year on one of the smaller rivers near my house. I've only gone flyfishing, but I usually do well using copper johns, muddlers, cone head muddlers, and bead head hares ears.

    It's a little early for sea run cutt's on the coastal rivers. I'd wait till mid/late Aug. before I'd be heading over...

    Been lucky in the past on the Trask, but normally in Sept.

    Go hit the Siletz right now for some summers. That is WAY better then a cutt.

    We have Sea-run Cuts west of Longview. I caught this two weeks ago. My brother is convinced it's a sea-run, I think it probably is, but I'm not 100%sure. You be the judge.

    Beautiful cutthroat for sure but not a searun cutthroat, not a spring run or fall run, just a nice resident cutthroat

    I was wanting to get my wife on to some cutthroat. I will wait a few more weeks and try it again.
