I am ready for it. We are heading out black mouth fishing this week. Heading down in a few weeks to see if we can hook up a few springers on the CR. Might be a good season.

Headed to SoCal this weekend for some time off. Taking the reels down for rebuild to get ready for another season.

Hope it will be a good one. Anyone heard if they are going to let us fish for Sockeye on the skagit agian?

Water is in rough shape for salmon, but I have been able to bonk a few steelhead. I am hoping that the river clears a little in the next month.

Tealer,
Are you plunking or sitting on the hook? I took a look at it yesterday and it looked rough at Kalama.
Hope i can find a few springers this year.

Your right. I lucked into one steelhead on the Big river with diver bait in less then 2' of water. We are going to try a bobber rig in that spot.

I have focused smaller rivers since.

Made a quick trip to the Oregon coast with my brother last weekend and caught a few steelhead. Haven't been back there since I moved to the basin 5 years ago so it was a good time!

Got a couple of Blackmouth trips in. Getting ready for the halibut opener at Neah Bay, seems early but have pipe jigs to make and a bunch of jigs to pour for the sea bass. Reservations for camp site already confirmed. New reel purchased for speed jigging and casting swim baits for albacore, still trying to decide on a rod. Time for oil change on the outboards. Still have to pull the blind off the duck boat and get it ready for the trout opener.

Made another trip out with my dad and brother last weekend. In my neck of the woods this time. Went 6 for 9 on little fellas just like this. And a pile of whitefish

The springers are finally in on the Columbia River. Buddies have been catching them fairly consistently for the past week. :thumbsup:
