By: Kyle Buschelman While anglers have been trolling the Columbia River for a few months in search of springers we are at the start of the spring Chinook season in Oregon. These fish are starting to fill the Columbia and Willamette River and we’ve been having success finding them. Meanwhile, returns are projected a tad [...]

2018 Springer Preview

2019-10-31T08:53:49-07:00

By: Connor Taplin Following a poor early springer run last year I’m optimistic this season we are going to have a much better run. Last year we contended with poor water conditions, a slightly smaller run and colder than desirable temperatures. Fortunately, this year we are already seeing much better clarity, warmer water and early [...]

Learn to Fish Sand Shrimp & Eggs For Oregon Springers

2018-04-18T18:58:00-07:00

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

2018-04-18T18:58:02-07:00

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 [...]

Use Brined Shrimp For Drano/Wind River Springers

2018-04-18T18:58:10-07:00

By: Toby Wyatt Although upriver stocks of spring salmon (those headed to Eastern Washington and Idaho) are struggling, Drano and the Wind River still have good runs of springers. Because of these two fisheries a lot of us fishing guides were able to salvage a season. These are two places that are thriving now and [...]

Recent Uptick in Cowlitz Springers

2018-04-18T18:58:12-07:00

By: Bob Kratzer Springer fishing on the Cowlitz River has been decent. It hasn’t been horrible and hasn’t been great. There’s fish here and we’ve had an uptick in recent days, but we are dealing with high and cold water and that’s made catching them more challenging. It’s been a long time since conditions were [...]
