Derailed Cars Near Spyrock

"I do a lot of Steehead fishing on the Eel River and you would be amazed at how many cars are laying next to the river from where the forks meet all the way to Scotia.  Most are covered by trees and bushes.  There is a string of 3-4 near…"

Chad, saw your comment on the Derailed Cars thread about steelhead fishing on the Eel River and just wanted to ask how the fishing is on the river these days?  When I grew up in Ukiah I obsessed about fly fishing and made it to the Eel River many times with a couple friends, but our luck (and skill at that time) was not so good.  Regards,

Mark D.
