Mr. Carp, with all due respect you obviously have never caught a Springer in June or early July before.

They are so immature(this is why their meat can still be very red and fatty) at this point that most people don't like using their eggs for salmon bait because they are so small.

I put all of mine up for Steelhead bait because they NEVER fall off.

As far as there meat goes. In July you have to start picking through them to get bar-b-que fish but most still are. Remember, they are still coming over Willamette Falls.

We catch fish with silver on them every year in July. Just not often.

Mastercaster, what time of the year did you see the spawned out Springer? Are you sure that it wasn't a Fall fish?
