Spring Chinook & Pre-Spawn Bass season started off in normal fashion, then the weather threw us a curve ball with summer like conditions.
Great for the fisherman but not so much for the catching. The water temps reached 65 in April!
Smallmouth spawned on the full moon in April instead of May, the river level dropped to the lowest levels I’ve ever seen for Spring and the river moss has choked out the Salmon fishing. We finally threw in the towel on May 1.
Good news is the bass fishing has been good for numbers and size plus the Shad are filling the river.
I want to thank everyone who had their Salmon trip cancelled or rescheduled to the Fall for your understanding. Here are some Salmon photos before the moss took over.
