Spring is finally here, and with the weather getting better and warmer, the bass fishing is showing signs of improving. Got a decent smallmouth and a nice largemouth during recent outings. The fishing will only get better. Now I will be spending my time both on the rivers chasing spring chinook salmon and on the lakes bass fishing. A great place to live here in Oregon!

Well, after a couple of trips chasing these often “tough to get to bite” salmon, my Buddy Barry Filipone and I finally got a couple to bite. Both were native and had to be released, but awesome, powerful fish to fight. Barry hooked a real brute of a fish that he fought for a long time, took us down river. The hook pulled out just as it was coming to the net so we could not get a photo of that trophy. My fish was taken out of the net, quickly photographed, and sent back on its way to continue its final journey. Barry’s RGB (Really Good Bait) backbounced through the slot did the trick!
