Wrapping Salmon Plugs with Coonshrimp or Prawn

Posted 2 years ago

We highly recommend wrapping salmon plugs with bait to add the extra edge on triggering a bite. The action of the plug must still be tuned properly while being wrapped with bait. By using the proper baits and wrapping the plug in the right way, you can maintain an excellent plug action plus leave a scent trail that will lure salmon right to your plug.Sardine and tuna are popular wraps - we often use quality cured coon-shrimp (Washington Coon Shrimp is our personal choice.) Also of note - this is not only productive on fresh Chinook but also extremely effective on...

If you've found a steady producing fish lane you may choose to anchor, but trolling is often one of the most popular techniques for chinook salmon. The Columbia river holds large runs of Spring, Summer and Fall Chinook. Trolling for these...

Why Salmon & Steelhead Are Disappearing | Part 2 - Dams

Posted 3 years ago

Hydroelectric DamsPerhaps the most definitive barrier to fish migration and spawning is an actual barrier. Hydroelectric dams are beneficial to human development, but devastating to fish populations. Many dams have been built with zero allowances for fish passage. This completely cuts off all spawning and rearing habitat above the dam and changes the natural flow and substrate distribution of a river.Some dams upstream in the Columbia River did not have fish passage. This destroyed populations such as the famous "June-Hog" Chinook Salmon that migrated to the upper reaches of the Columbia. These fish were genetically built and adapted so that they...
