2018 Springer Preview

2018-04-18T18:56:22-07:00

By: Connor Taplin Following a poor early springer run last year I’m optimistic this season we are going to have a much better run. Last year we contended with poor water conditions, a slightly smaller run and colder than desirable temperatures. Fortunately, this year we are already seeing much better clarity, warmer water and early [...]

Columbia River Still Kicking Out Lots of Salmon

2018-04-18T18:57:09-07:00

By: Connor Taplin Salmon fishing on the Columbia River continues to be great in the Portland area. However, the bite will likely slow in the next few weeks. Fortunately, anglers will be able to migrate upriver to follow the fish and remain in consistent action through the end of the month. We are seeing about [...]

Anglers Working Harder For Hanford Reach Salmon

2018-04-18T19:00:05-07:00

By: Toby Wyatt Considering they predicted one million salmon and we only got 500,000 across Bonneville the run wasn’t what we expected. It never reached potential. On the bright side, however, with the time we are putting in we are still catching fish daily. We haven’t had any days where we got skunked. Last year [...]

2018-04-18T19:02:04-07:00

By: Mike Ainsworth At the start of springer season, lower than normal water and clearer water than we’ve seen in the past few years on the Columbia River had me focused on running mostly Natural Fire Brine herring.
