  1. I am in oregon rn and i got these guys yesterday

    My first green sunfish and my first lower 48 fish


    My first Largemouth Bass 


    More fish:





    I caught one more but didn't take a picture of it. But it's in my next youtube video so keep an eye out for it.

  2. if the river you are fishing is anywhere in the intiorior there probably won't be dollies. Now that is a very opposite case for grayling. They are in every river it seems like. Grayling like Adams, black gnats, blue duns, red tags, San Juan worms (Old reliable), prince nymphs, woolly buggers, hares ear nymphs, anything that looks buggy. You are on the right track

    Always ... ALWAYS ... train harder than you intend to perform.  If you want to run a faster 1 mile, run ten miles.  When you get to the point you're running ten miles without slowing, then a mile is easy-peasy.

    When I was running 3 mile PFTs, I ran an average 15 miles a day.

    I actually ran 3.75 miles nonstop and it actually lowered my time. Now, i like to run 1 mile as fast as possible, then jog back and I shave a good hunk of time off my run that way. I would actually be running a lot more, but i sadly don't have enough time to do that. With my schedule I can do 1 hour tops a day. Now, when summer rolls around I will have more time, but i will still be making as many videos as possible, and studying for AP classes. But, my dad has to do a LOT of work in delta this summer, and Delta is very spread out. The nearest fishing spot is 6 miles away. I don't think my mom or dad will want to take me every day, so I am going to be doing the commute on bike. Biking 12 plus miles and running for 1-2 miles will be a lot of PT.

    Another thing to think about is I am 14. I am in the prime of my life, and that's the main reason why I am taking a lot of time off my run.

    @Poopdeck I actually try to do that every day, but sometimes you need to take a step back and work another section of the body. Doing it every day is actually pretty bad for your body.

    I would try the Clackmas or Nestucca for early summer run fish. It's not the best time being late for winter fish and a little early for summers, but you never know unless you give it a shot. 

    Read the regs carefully. 

    Okay, thank you. Any spots for Crappie?

  5. hey everyone james here. No advice is better than advice from people the have been to the area that you want to fish, and know how to catch them. But, sometimes when you are hungry for knowledge and no one has anything to give to you it can be frustrating. That's when I usually turn to a website called FishBrain. I use it a lot when I can't find any advice on where to fish. If you don't want to pay for anything the free version is all you need. The free version is this big map with blue marks, and those blue marks are all where people have caught fish. I am going to Oregon (Tigard and Newburg area) and I wanted to catch a Steelhead, but no one knew any spots, so I turn to fishbrain and now I am confident that I have a good chance of connecting with a few. Here is the link:

    Enjoy and tight lines.

  6. Whelp i am going to oregon on may 2nd (Yayyyyyyyy). I have to be around portland so i'm going to bring some military grade body armor and an ar 15. all jokes aside i'll mostly be in tigard and newburg and i am hoping to do some steelhead fishing. does anyone know any spot for that. I will only be bringing my baitcasting rod because it's the most compactable, so i will be using spinning gear. Also, what are some other spots for bass, crappie, ect.?

    Imma use my 6 foot 6 inch Ugly Stik.


    Here are the details. The rod is made out of graphite sadly. And I am bad at picture taking.


    Here is my Cemar C-30 reel with 20 lb test braid.


    Here is my rig. 4 ounce weight, hook with a 3/4ths inch gap (That's a legal hook), and 30 pound test line.

    That's my setup for you 

  8. It's that time again when the Tanana river has thawed up (Sorry, no pictures.) I was riding back from Fairbanks to Delta yesterday, and along the way we cross the bridge. On the way to Fairbanks at sometime around 9 in the morning. The shore closest to Delta was fishable, but the shore opposite to delta still had some shelf ice. While in Fairbanks the temperature went way up to 55 degrees and on the way back to Delta the opposite side was now fishable. And It's only getting warmer, so you know what that means. Fishing. Sorry, no fly fishing but still fishing. The reason why there will be no fly fishing is I am fishing for burbot. So that means big, bare hooks, bait 4 ounce weights, and a fairly big rod. I'll keep you updated on the burbot season.

    Not putting down weights, but they aren't necessary.  You will never be asked to do curls or bench presses for physical fitness tests.  You will need to be able to carry a body out of a burning room or to drag it across a muddy field.  You'll need to do push ups, pull ups, sit up/crunches, etc.

    Use your own body to exercise.   As you put on muscle weight, you'll also be putting on the strength to carry it.

    And get yourself a heavy bag.  Punching exercises every day will build muscle, bone density, speed and the ability to put down an opponent ... which is THE basic skill ALL military men need.  Military training will teach you the best way to USE that strength, but the more of it you have when you get there, the easier it'll be to learn what they teach.

    I will keep that in mind. Thank you for the advice

    That's quite the requirement right there. If I'm not mistaken I think the normal average for someone in good shape and fairly young is around 9 minutes 😬

    my freind who is only 1 year older than me can do 7:55. I did 9 minutes because i was running on a road and there was ice and traffic and I was trying not to die

    Dude, you're a flytyer.  You have a stash of fur, feathers, and dubbings galore.  Cats hock-up hairballs at 3 in the morning.

    Do I really need to spell this out further for you?

    I suggest a slow-mo hairball expulsion into the camera eye.  This would be proper use of all the nifty video effects folks try to use on YouTube, but often do so lamely.  You can be different there, you can be the shining ray of light they all look to.  Make it (the hairball) pretty with Steelhead colors, flash, etc and for crying' out loud don't choke on the friggin' thing.  Do it soon for I have a feeling your video equipment may be the victim of parental confiscation sometime in the near future.  Never jive your Ol' Man on the internet or there'll be a foot headed for your a$$ soon.

    The microwave quip on the push-up video was pretty good.😁


    Don't worry, my dad knows that I think he is WAY to strict. That's how military parents are. But that whole hairball thing is a good idea!
