Hoping it turns on soon. I have charter booked with Oregon City Charters on April 1, it was gift.
Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me

I may not have alot but what I have I got honest.....

I'd rather be hated for what I am then be loved for what I'm not

Is it me, or are people getting dumber

Trolled along Bachelor Island today.  Negative results but it was nice to get out & look things over.  As all know the water is high & murky, about 1ft visibility.  Marker 13 is normally quite a few feet above water level.  Like the debris hung up on the marker, there is stuff out there so keep an eye out.
Only saw one sea lion, guess that's good except it might mean there are no fish around either

Sea lions have been more or less absent from the lower river this year compared to last. There's about 1/3 as many at East Mooring Basin compared to last year as well. Talked to a local biologist and they said it was because the smelt run was no bueno this year :dunno:
Have you called your district biologist to voice your concerns?
Have you attended a public meeting on season setting?
You are getting exactly what you deserve from WDFW
