So we had our first official day on the Upper Rogue River for the spring run of Chinook Salmon. The day started out a little slow, so we switched gears and ran up river a bit to try our hand at some winter run steelhead. Well, after about two hours, we had four of those beauties in the box all about 7- 10 lbs. We then decided to go down river and try for those Spring Salmon again. Well just a few minutes later, we are side drifting roe, and we hook into a 20 lb Spring Chinook on 10 lb test line! It was very eventful getting her into the boat but, we finally did it after about a 15 minute battle! So that’s 1 down and hopefully a boat load more to go for the season. Nothing better then fresh Spring Salmon on the BBQ.
