Well, after one of the best Spring Salmon Seasons in years, were out at the coast getting ready for the Fall Chinook and Silver Salmon Season. Our first day out had us upriver, side drifting for Kings and we went two for two, with and average weight of 20 lbs. As the River temperature upriver continued to increase, we were back in the bay trolling spinner baits. With Salmon rolling in the bay, one would have thought fishing would have been better. Hopefully the fish in the bay start biting so we can get this Fall Season going.


Well we finished off the Spring Salmon Season with limits and near limit days. These fish were still in beautiful shape. Bill finished the season with a total of 154 Springers caught, and is now heading over to the coast for the start of the Fall Salmon Season. This has been one of the best Springer Seasons we can remember in years!

Thank you to everyone who made this year’s Springer Season so successful. Check the photos page on Bill’s website in the up coming weeks to see if your photo made it to the gallery.

Forecast: With early reports of large schools of Salmon out in the Pacific, and if the Spring Salmon season is any indication of how the Fall Salmon season is going to be. We should be having an incredible Fall Coastal Salmon Season.
