Anyone ever have luck using a plug cut herring up near oregon city? If so can you do it while anchored or shall i continue trolling with diver and prawn
Springers will eat a herring from now till around august 15 when they close the season on the santiams. It is pure unadulterated nonsense that at a certain point in the river that springers stop smashing herring. I've had fish absolutely smash a herring back trolled on a jet diver in the channel in front of meldrum bar. The fish in my avatar took a herring 290 river miles from B10. Just remember that the fish this year are wanting something trolled just slightly faster than the current, weather it be prawns, herring, or whatever. Good luck!
So, you're saying that I should troll "up-stream" just slightly?
