    Afternoon, I fished them, until this happened. Browns and bows on the surface, whitefish below. Fun times.

    Cranberry Country...a glorified coastal swamp!
    Was it a warm rain? Any thunder and lightning?
    Maybe the lightning rod on your bike brought it on!:D

    Sweet looking water. I've heard there's browns in the upper watershed. I wonder how they aren't noticeable throughout the system.

    Dams and reservoirs cause some migratory issues for those buggers is why.

    There are most definitely some Browns in the upper river... From below Crane Prairie to Lake Billy Chinook, you can find Browns though I wouldn't say they are the dominant species.

    I caught this one last weekend upriver of Wickiup... dynamite day... I lost one that made this fish look small.

    The raindrops look to be the size of golf balls. Wow!
