Going to try and ambush some springers on Wednesday, wanted to know if there are any "tricks of the trade" at the boat ramp, or any hidden obstacles that I need to be aware of in the St. Helens area.

If the tide is in the last of the outgoing, the chanel between the launch and the boat dock gets a little thin. Other than that I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary. SPACE FISH

If you launch at Bayport, stay to the left of the pilings after you leave the marina. And, as always, watch out for wingdams. There's also a bunch of submerged pilings at the northern tip of Sauvie's, so don't cut the corner when leaving/entering the CR from the channel.

Good advice there 1pump, when the river gets really low, I'm always surprised at both:

1)how far out the pilings extend.

2)that I don't see more boats stranded there with smashed props/lower units.

I'm really paranoid about that spot and give it an extra wide clearance, coming and going from the Channel.
