Not yet junior! For a small fee I can arrange a taxi out, the trip out is free but that ride back will cost ya! (LOL) We seen a new way to fish the spillway Fri., there were two kids fishing with a bell sinker and 4 yes 4 treble hooks above it, they even put a couple twister tails on one treble to entice the fish. There wasn't anything but carp up in there, I think they were practicing for the run.

Good luck out there! I'm sort of interested in this report because I'm gonna go back to school in a couple weeks where I'm kind of limited to the east side. If you have the time AS, pm me on how you do, good or bad. Thanks.

This year I'm planning on building a dragline. I'm going to cast out a few 12 lb cannonballs with a gill net attached. That's legal isn't it?

John. Is there any way we can rig something up to get out there. Like two by fours with ropes and hooks. Like a suspension bridge?

The boards are just chains screwed into solid wood planks. They were no problem to cross, and worked great. The north pier is by far the better pier for salmon there. There's supposed to be a decent north wind that night, and a nearly full moon. I think it might be decent fishing......

I may run up Mon. night depending on work. I probobly won't get there till after midnight, and fish till daylight off south pier. Haven't been there in a couple years, sounds good.

Doesn't mean anything, you don't often see the early fish, there's not big numbers. Of course the waters warm, summer just got over and there's 6 impoundments on the river! It's at 71 and dropping right now, there are kings in there. I seen my first river fish last year on September 3, and bet they were there alittle earlier as well. Last summer was much warmer then this summer.....

The river is up after the heavy rain on thursday. Good current and stained water. A few salmon are being taken by trollers at the mouth. Night time air temps are dropping and water temps should start coming down as well.
