I was hoping to start a discussion of 2021 spring/summer salmon fishing on the banks of tributaries. Fish pictures, methods, river updates, etc. I have one season of experience but had some decent luck on bobber and bait. I know spinners and twitching jigs are popular for springers but what other methods work in tributaries from the bank? 20200605_082436.jpg 20200605_060628.jpg

Found my first Willamette trib springer yesterday. She fell for shrimp and eggs. Not from the bank but hopefully the first of many. This was a river I'd never fished before. Friday we scouted it out and floated almost 30 miles. Saturday we fished from daylight until 10:30 and found 1.

You found a needle in the haystack.

Anyone have any experience bank fishing the Alsea River for springers? I just moved to the area so I have no experience.

No pics but we got 2 of 3 on Thursday. Numbers aren't great but I've been pleased with the number of biters we're finding. I just wish we had more commit. I think we had 7 bites that didn't stick.
