Went up for our annual salmon trip this weekend with two of my buddies. Fished upper middle portion of the river. Caught fish on thundersticks and hot n tots. I think we ended up landing 9 fish between 3 of us out of twice that many hook ups. Couldnt believe the amount of fish in the system. The best ive seen in a long time! Was a great trip. Caught some real nice fish! Including one that we estimated at 25 lbs. Gold hot n tots with a pink belly outproduced all. Gold was definetly the hot color! Hot n tots were the ticket on bedding fish, thundersticks in the holes. I'll get some pics up tonight!
