Dude, there are always plenty of people that say there "must" be springers in there this time of year. These are usually the same people that totally underestimate the time required for a fish to make it from the falls at O.C. to the Lebanon dam, or even the mouth of the Santiams to the dam. The steelies will roll in there UNTIL the springers show up, which tend to push the steelies through that entire area! It's pretty easy to tell the difference between the two if you get a decent look at all.
