Willamette National Forest in west-central Oregon, August 26 - 30 (Mon-Fri).  Fishmaster - Rich Miller.

We shall fish Salt Creek, Salmon Creek, and the North Fork of the Middle Fork Willamette River, lovely streams
that flow through modest-elevation forests to  the Middle Fork of the Willamette River, as well as the Middle Fork itself above Lookout Point Reservoir.  These waters have lots of trout, some in the Middle Fork quite large, frequently willing to rise to dries.  We plan on camping at the unusual Blue Pool CG on OR-58.  If you drive in along OR-58, you can stop and see the Salt Creek Falls, nearly 300' high.

The area is a 7 hour road trip (not counting stops) up past Shasta, east and north on OR-97, and west on OR-58.

Oregon fishing licenses are easy to get online. A 3-day license was under $40. You can get a non-resident annual license for around $120.


Hotel Accommodations available downriver in Oakridge if you don't want to camp.  Float trips on the Middle Fork are available if water levels are high enough through the Caddis Fly Shop in Eugene.

GPFF strongly encourages car pooling. Email me to coordinate rides, or, more generally, if you have questions.

Look here for fishout sheet a few weeks before the trip.


Tight Lines!
