Hit the river with my wife Melanie on Sunday, a little crowded but not too bad, just about everyone was polite and we saw about 7 or 8 fish taken,this one was 9lb9oz., the only one we had on, but we had a blast, a rod I bought for downrigger fishing for salt salmon, a lami xcc934 with an abu garcia reel,a Record #61 that I bought with derby winnings from Lake Quinalt a couple of years ago. I didn't hook any salmon last year with it although I did take a nice cabazon with it. The salmon was taken on a blue fox spinner with an inline flasher, the common set-up for this river at this point.I wasn't using the downrigger as this river is shallow and loaded with snags.I'll try to get back there later in the week, hopefully river will clear a litle after all this rain.

Great report Bob.

I'm still waiting for one to strike.
