Has anyone been to Winchester Bay after springers, or know if there is anything starting to happen yet? Thanks for your time.

cheers

Seems like most effort for umpy springers is in the river. Scottsburg and up is the usual place to fish.

Good luck,

When the water is SUPER low, the springers will mill around in the lower river a bit(like fall fish) but for the most part springers just cruise until above reach of tide before they start holding. There is a high tide fishery at and just outside the jaws.

There are occasional springers caught from the bank at halfmoon bay...There is also a late portion of the run that hits the river in June, when they hit that warm water they will hold below the 101 bridge in reedsport for a week or two before moving upstream. This time of year though I think they blast through to the head of tide pretty fast.
