Wow, yesterday was pretty nasty on the river. Of course it looks like today is worse so I'll count myself lucky.

Considering how bad the bite was, I was pretty lucky. I hooked into 2 Springers and got 1 in the boat.

The ODFW lady checking for tags at the dock said the average she saw for the day was around 1 fish for every 4 boats.

It was my first time Salmon fishing so I am very glad I didn't get skunked.

Very cool-I tried hooking into my first one this year and switched to sturgeon after awhile. Caught my first oversize sturgeon which was cool-56", which river were you fishing in? Great job on the catch. Hope you catch a bunch more this year!
