Pretty slow today. I got the only fish I saw today in the Longview area on a plug.

You guys keep giving them heck! Springers were a serious addiction for me over a couple decades ago...I'd start fishing them the middle of March, (within sight of the Astoria bridge) and follow them up to Bonneville..then on to the Wenatchee/Icicle..and rinse/repeat for Summers, then Falls. During March in the "low" River, when/if I found concentrations of smelt back then, the springers fishing could be off-da-hook! I'm just not mad at them anymore, nor as tuff I guess? Back then I remember some trips where we'd drive out to the beaches and razor clam at night, then springer fish all day out of Skamokawa. Top it off with a 6-7hr drive home, those were the days! Maybe once I retire, I'll chase them again...

Thinking we will see a Columbia re opener in late may. If not my springer season is done. Made 9 trips on the Columbia and willamette. Brought home 13 springers. Got skunked twice and released 3 wild fish.

Looks like DFW tossed us a bone. Anybody have recent eyes on river conditions?

Fished near Home Valley Wednesday. Amazing morning weather wise, but very slow bite. Afternoon was windy and rough, but fish being caught.

Fished 2-6 tonight. Got a nice one about 3pm and lost another right after it. Then the wind made it almost un fishable.
