Diamond Lake Charlie
- Oct 20, 2015
It is getting on to spring and I am working to get my legs under me so I can get back out on the river and Diamond to do some fishing. With the trout I have no problem but for some reason the Salmon just laugh at me. I have often pulled in bait when trolling and had nothing but teeth marks on them, so I just figure that little pea brain is smarter than mine. I am hoping to get in some time for some springers so maybe there is somebody out there who can help me. On the main Umpqua a few miles up from Reedsport, there is an island, I think behind the condo's I am thinking about trying again this spring. I have the boat, I have the anchor system and all the the rest of the stuff but I cannot remember what the fish prefer in making their runs up the river. One side is deep +20ft and the other is rather less than 10ft. but greater than 5ft shallow and faster water.. My question is what type of water would the fish prefer. I am not experienced in chasing the fish when they have a choice. I will admit I am a fall salmon fisher and have only been out after springers once or twice Anybody out there have any good information for me, I would really appreciate it.
