This is what I'm talking about, small stream coastals, learn to read the gauges, by the time you hear a report the fish are gone...

Yeah buddy! Small Winter coastals is all about being ready at a moments notice. Definitely want to get up into Oregon some this year.
Here's the fall and spring shorts that go with the winter I posted.

I plan on spending a week up on the So. Ore coast around Feb if it's not blown out the whole winter because of El Nino. Last year was tough for me up there but the year before was epic. Hopefully there will be enough water to fish the real small stuff which I haven't been able to do in a few years.

Nice. Keep in touch, I plan on spending as many fishable days as I can on the river this year. I made the switch from gear a few years ago and these winter fish are a tough nut to crack compared to the fall fish in the rogue, trinity and Klamath.  Need lots of river time.

I'll let you know when I go, usually short notice, probably drop the raft in the SF Eel a few times.

I try to nymph a few up before I switch over to swinging. Smaller streams usually more nymphing.  Nothing harder than to swing up a winter steelhead and for me nothing more rewarding.

Hey! Rockroach, it's your buddy from the Trin, LOL. Fished with Jason about 5 years ago, he's good a good dude. A couple of my inner circle of  steelheaders who chase steel with spey rods fish with him every winter. I usually drive by him at least once in the fall on the klam or trin.

I went with him a few times, on the advice of rockroac on this very forum, and I went from total noob hack to semi competent gumby on the Spey. I'm hoping this year I get enough river time to reach full gumby.
