There are a load of large Springs around the flat tops out of Silva Bay. Hearing many reports of hogs hitting and peeling line before spitting out or breaking leaders. We have manage a few nice big Spring most days out. They seem to have come off the bottom and feeding higher up. The bellies are choked full of herring and anchovies ranging from 1'' to 8'', so all size spoons are working, best still is the anchovies /watermelon teaser. Coho are starting to show, mostly wild ones and the odd hatchery. ( you can only retain hatchery coho.
Remember to keep the tip of the heads, of all clipped Chinook & Coho. tag and bag them and deposit them at
