Only one for me so far this year. I almost gave up trying too. Went out late on a friday evening around 7:30pm after work and in 1 1/2 hrs. we had 2 in the boat. Put many, oh so many hours on the river.

4 springers landed and 7 threw the hook. 6 days of fishing. 10 were hooked on the only decent day I have seen so far. Hopefully the fish decide to come in.

10 trips or so since the Columbia opened. Cayght one wild fish, then the water came up and the few spots that were fishable were to packed with people so I gave up. none to BBQ for me this year. Here is the real question. with runs expected to flop next year and no reason to expect large runs ever again. Was the 15th the last day springer fishing in the Columbia will be open in my lifetime???

B-Run,
Time to pick up the kayak and make a quick trip downriver...just toss out a little dough to NRS in Moscow and you'll be set for some speed back bouncing down the crick!!!

3 keepers and 1 unclipped on the Columbia, 1 broke off, and 1 keeper lost at the net 'cause my buddy decided to net the tail. rolleyes
(more upset about the lost plug than the fish)

OK add 4 keepers to my total (but they aren't as prized 'cause I caught them over a few days out of a meat fishery).

7 hooked, 3 wild that were released and 4 clipped in the boat between this year and last. RA3, YES there will be another fishery in our lifetime. Decent return this year, good flows to get em' out, may have to wait a few years but it will happen. Besides that the predicted fall nook' returns are suppossed to be awesome this year!!!
Good luck and tight lines, Jeff laugh laugh

I only made it down once, but had a decent trip personaly though. All day fishing and 1 kept ~17 lbs. and one supposed wild (Idaho tribal fish)released ~9 lbs. mad mad Those were the only fish or bites for our boat that day. The truck problems at the Cathlamet launch are a different story. rolleyes
As far as the future goes I see great things coming. laugh laugh laugh Springers spend a year in the fresh water before they leave. That means that last years record return will be going downstream this year with good water to push them through. Now we just hope that the winter of 02-03 will again provide enough snow to push out the 02 brood, this years.
That could get confussing quick. confused

Two on my card. I have put a number of my friends on their First Ever Springers. RBF busted the first one off, Smurf got 3, Pete the Plunker got one and so did Byron at F4.

I am not done yet!
