The Columbia should give up some fish

For the Columbia River Spring Chinook season I always start around March 25th. Prior to that the water temperature is too cold and the fish don’t have much energy. My fishing network has mostly reported spotty fishing so far but it’s picking up. In the picture above Cliff caught a Columbia river chrome springer on March 27th during one of my Guided Educational fishing trips. The best advice for this early spring fishing is to troll as slow as you can go. I prefer triangle flashers with whole or cut plug herring. Keep you gear tight to the bottom when the current is moving and you’ll give yourself a good chance to hook a springer. Tight Lines
