Hi everyone, just found this site and was happy to find some of you are on the west coast too. I live in Oregon and like to fish the Umpqua and Smith, although I have yet to tie into a striper here. Hooked into one surf perch fishing in Bandon and lost him in the shore wash. Eager to learn anything folks are willing to teach me about these waters. I also just graduated college with an associates in fisheries, so if there are any bio's out there looking for qualified assistants let me know.
