Northwest Oregon Salmon Update

Learn to Fish Sand Shrimp & Eggs For Oregon Springers

By: Steven Theel Springers are known for being much more finicky than their fall counterparts and our Upper Rogue fish are no exception. This can be especially true when the water is high and cold like it has been this season. In these conditions I rely heavily on eggs to produce bites. Adding sand shrimp [...]

Upper Rogue Springers Showing Late

By: Steven Theel This hasn’t been a normal year for springer fishing in Southern Oregon. Historically, our springer run peaks in late May when hatchery fish return to the Upper Rogue River. Meanwhile, extremely high and cold water has delayed migration upstream. Our run is late and more fish are coming. It should last through [...]

Lower Rogue Anglers Grinding Out Springers

By: Troy Whitaker The good news is people are catching springers on the Lower Rogue. However, it’s been a fair run. I’d call it average. It hasn’t been the worst I’ve ever seen and there haven’t been fish swimming everywhere either. Most of the people I’ve talked to are catching fish, but it’s been a [...]

That’s normal for springer fishing for us. We should see more fish come in May and June from the central to north Oregon Coast. The first quarter [...]

Adjust to Challenging Conditions for Willamette Spring Chinook Success

By: Kyle Buschelman So far the spring Chinook season has been a challenge. Meanwhile, making adjustments to baits and how we present them have helped me put a few fish in the boat. Those putting in the work and time can catch springers. The Columbia River is closed. Therefore, most anglers will travel above Bonneville [...]

Learn to Cure/Fish Coon Shrimp for PNW Springers

On the other hand, to approach smaller water alternative tactics need to be employed, which we’ll cover in this blog. In the Northwest we have several alternatives to the Columbia [...]

High Water Forcing Anglers to Run Plugs for Columbia Springers

By: Mike Ainsworth A reflection of high water and lots of snowmelt this week the Columbia River is a foot and a half above flood stage. Fortunately, this doesn’t mean you have to forgo your spring king fishing. Meanwhile, you’ll likely have to alter your techniques to be successful. The springers are going to come [...]

Tillamook Region to Produce Steelhead Through March

By: Dave Manners We haven’t had a steelhead city like this in the Tillamook area for as long as I can remember. Despite having one of the wettest years in recent memory there’s lots of fish around. And, there’s going to be fish around for a while. We know it’s going to be consistent through [...]
