Who likes to eat SPRINGERS ??? 

The fish are finally starting to show up and today we got to put a Springer in the fish bag. We spent the day throwing the kitchen sink at em and the old fail safe pulled through again. Back bouncing is the hardest technique I have ever had to learn and teach but when you put in the work and trust the bait I will happen.

We hit the fast water, and corners with kwik fish and divers but the fish didn't want anything to do with the heavy current. So we focused out time in the boils and eddys and grind em till you find em baby.

The klamath and rogue river will continue to see better fishing conditions throughout the month and into June so if you have been dragging your feet about your spring salmon trip you better get off your phone and make it happen.

Call me before it's to late.

Keep your tip up.
