- Springfield, Or
Is there anywhere you can buy uncured Roe Or Skeins? Preferably around the Eugene Springfield area or not too far away.
If you are going to buy it I would suggest buying fresh roe from some of the tackle shops or guides up north. Many ship next day air and the eggs are only out of the fish a handful of hours, they will cure up and fish the best!
You can try this place.
Cured/Fresh Uncured Salmon Eggs - Xtreme Northwest Bait Co LLC – Wide selection of fishing baits products.
This is where we got our eggs.. they were frozen solid.
I thought you could get them fresh and not frozen. Maybe you have to wait until there are fall chinook and more summer steelhead around to get the fresh eggs. Your eggs will still cure up fine just with not quite as much absorption and wont milk as much but will still catch many fish!! I guess I'm kind of an egg whore Bleed the fish, put on gloves, remove the eggs place in ziplock, put on ice! Then the whole routine at home is even more detailed :lol: Good luck with the curing!
