2 years ago was the worst return ever, now this year is worse. Discouraging describes it well but it's thinking about the long term possibilities of these runs that has me the most discouraged. Hopefully they're right about the Mckenzie springer forecast.hobster said:This is true, but life is getting busy. I usually try to get out a couple of times in March, April used to be good as well but the runs are so poor right now. The trap counts at our local river are so dismal it is discouraging. I’ve only got one shot to get out in the next three weeks so I’m going for it but that will probably be it for me. Springers are coming!
