Default May Springers

The post By Gotfish ( here ) made me start thinking about how everone has been saying this springer season sucked. To me it was a lot like the winter steelhead season. It started off slow or people believed it was slow and most people quit fishing leaving those of us still fishing with good fishing.

I spent May on the Willamette and its tribs and had good fishing all month. I think I fished all but one of the tribs and had limit days on all that we fished.

Here are a couple shots from the month.

We had a lot of wet cold days in May.

Grant and I even had an afternoon we got to go together as he showed me a river new to me. It's fun to fish new water, be the only boat, and limit in 3 hours.

Nothing like catching limits of springers in your T-shirt.

This year we saw lots of native fish. I don't know if there were more nates than usual this year, but I think their was a higher percentage of them. Their numbers stayed about the same while the hatchery numbers were well off.

One of 5 nates this day.

Sun, T-shirt, Chrome and my Northriver (priceless)
