One of the places I like to fish for spring salmon is located right in the heart of portland, In between the I5 bridge 205 bridge.There are a few different ways to fish for spring salmon here.
My favorite way is trolling with hearing. Trolling is a lot like hunting you are searching for the fish.Another great technique is to anchor, Using a jet diver and a quick fish.This is extremley good when the Columbia is running fast!
As the month of April winds down I work my way up the Columbia river to Bonneville damn,Where i anchor with spinners.I have had great success on the Columbia river for spring salmon.
You can make your choice for the heart of Portland or The beautiful Columbia Gorge.
