I went to the Willamette in Salem yesterday, and saw several good size salmon jumping around. I did some fishing with some spinners and with some eggbait sacs. I didn't have any luck with the spinners, but I did have some strange experiences with the eggs...everytime I cast out, I would wait for a minute, and the bobber would slowly start to swim upstream. It would go a good distance, with the bobber going down suddenly, and then popping up without a hook-up. Regardless of size of hook that I used, I could never get a hook up, even though the bobber was taken down hard on several occasions. So what gives? Anyone with insights into the cause of this is more than welcome to let me know! Even with the hard rains, it was a good day.
