Tomorrow morning I am launching from Scappose Bay Marina, and heading out to the St. Helens area for summer Chinook. This will be our first time ever fishing for salmon. We are taking sturgeon gear too in case we don't get lucky with salmon (never caught a sturgeon either). I've been studying this on Ifish so I'm not totally clueless (just partially clueless!). Looking at the charts I think I will head towards areas either north or south of the mouth of the Lewis River. Tonight I will be picking up some spinners from Scott at Gent Bent tackle. If you're in the area and want to give some tips to partially clueless beginners, give me a call on channel 16. Or if you don't have a VHF radio, look for a red and white 18' Glasspar with cuddy cabin and a red top (and Ifish stickers).
