Starting about may I try to go to the gorge weekly. If you don't mind giving me a ride I can show you my top spots. I haven't explored the gorge from shore in spring but most spots I have found look like prime spots spawning grounds.

If I am still in The Dalles this Spring.....I would be glad to go fishing with you. I am switching jobs....so I'm not sure if and/or when I might move.

I like to fish both the Oregon and Washington sides, as it really increases your opportunities. Feel free to PM me when the time comes.

If you guys don't mind a third tagalong, I'd love to explore and learn the gorge with you. If you look at my history you can see a few of my photos of some of my trips... more scenery than fish, but i caught a few. I'm totally C&R, and totally respect whatever you practice, we could rotate who is the driver sometimes, I've got an Expedition that can take three of us, the obligatory 9 tackle boxes apiece, and the 15 rods each of us can't live without. I'm a Mr Mom with some chaufeur responsibilities, but can usually adapt my schedule to allow for a fishing trip. PM me if you'd like to get together for a beer and pizza and maybe make some more serious plans before Spring is on us... this almost 60 degree weather has had me itching to head out real soon.

I know your pain-The pics i posted are from your neck of the woods. I have had pretty good top water action, but most of mine come from split shotting. I love that river!

I'm ready to go too. Maybe we can arrange a time that a few of us can go together? Or at least meet up at a couple specific locations. After seeing some of the pictures that are starting to get posted I'm definitely ready.

Maybe we can all learn more this season if we stay in touch.
