I can't find where to buy Salmon skein. I'd really like to just catch a nice Salmon and procure some from there, but Im having trouble. If anyone knows where I can purchase some that would be awesome.

Try this website!

Cured/Fresh Uncured Salmon Eggs - Xtreme Northwest Bait Co LLC – Wide selection of fishing baits products.

I'm not sure if they will have much yet because springers egg are premature for the most part. They normally get a lot of eggs during the fall and maybe some with summer steelhead. I have never purchased eggs before but have heard good things about them. Good luck!

Also if you do get some fresh skeins let me know and I can send you the link on my website where we show you how to cure eggs!!

Thanks SS, thats where I actually discovered I could cure my own eggs and now I really want to!! I just need to find some Skein. Local fishmonger? I haven't heard of know any in portland, but again if any one knows some one that might know some one that would sell or give me some salmon Skein. I would love it!

Home cured is the best, if you do it right...otherwise it can be worse than that guide's choice nastyness. I lucked out and acquired some the other day from my neighbor who pulled out a fat hen from the Mac, he was going to throw them away because he didn't want to deal with them! I said he was insane to throw out quality eggs, and so he gave them to me. Worked for me :) Unfortunately, I don't know where to get uncured eggs from, other than catching a nice hen. Good luck

That was easy five years ago, it still is, but it takes a decent number of days to rack that many as of right now.

Word! Those Sandy fish love egg patterns! So do the Creekers, and Clack fish alike. Super nice fish Dan! I like the real deal, sub-3 pounders! They 3eat the best for Steelhead. Good to hear you are still stoked to fish man. We'll get after some Dam hole'rs later on this year... In shorts, slingin eggs.

Ah, yes. It lost a good 7 inches in the first shot with the funny angle. But again, very nice fish. And the Sandy does fish hard for Chinook especially above 10.5. Glad you are makin headway, hookin fish and all lately! Those friggin Chinook really like to just slowly turn, and criuse down! I have had a couple break me off at the Dam hole already. When they just aren't ready, they just aren't ready! I have fished a Nates Baits Cure a couple times, and I will say the Last Supper blows it away in the Clackamas, but I did hook a few Chinook, and like 15 Steelhead on it when we were screwing around on the Sandylast year for a week. They were all clipped fish too. Which I think is very strange for that river. Getting over 20 to the bank, and boat, and all of 'em were keepers? Weird, but maybe Nate has tapped into the phenotypic expression that hatchery stocks have, over less convoluted "wild" stocks. Strange for sure, but sometimes you get into a bunch of clippers! Always good for us. But try it out. You know tyhe cure thing pretty well, so you'll find out quick if you like it. And I will say that some cures work better than others, depending on the chemical content in your skin, and sweat. sO like I did years ago. Try 'em all, and find one that consistently produces...But you already knew that! Anyhoo, hope the new, free Nates Bait cure works out for you. And like I said before. When they start to pile up, we will mosey up to the Dam, and harass a few!
