The first confirmed Spring Run Chinook Salmon (Springer) was caught yesterday, February 1st.  While with guide Larry Kesch Jr, of Hook'em Up Guide Service, angler Jesse Eveland picked up this beauty while trolling the NW standardard plug cut herring.

I also got a report of a second springer caught, but still have not seen any photos to go along with it.  That second springer was said to be caught on a back bounced kwikfish.  That'd be two springers caught on the two most common methods.


This is an El Nino year, so I think we're going to have the first big wave of fish show up in just about 3 weeks.

This is getting too exciting.  While this fish wasn't caught on a kayak, now that we know the fish are coming, the kayaks are going to be hitting the river...
