We are on a northern salmon river. 2013 during spawning season we could not count all the fish on spawing gravel. Last year and this year we can count all the fish on the same beds on one hand. We saw 3 this weekend.
Tippy dam was slow, slow, slow. Not a lot of people fishing, and really not very many fish. But the fish that were there seemed to be spawning!
Worthy of note: I did not see a single person ripping, trying to snag fish. I also didn't see any CO's, but they were around, because their vehicles were parked up top. It was nice seeing people actually fishing for Kings for a change.
