The Columbia River is the largest river in the northwest of the United States, forming the border between Oregon and Washington. In the spring, Chinook salmon are a popular game fish appreciated by their meat. Fishing for Chinook in the spring comes in two forms – trawling and anchoring. Both techniques use different strategies and even a variety of baits to catch fish. Before fishing, be sure to check local restrictions on where allowed to fish and the amount of breeders authorized by the area you plan to fish. These limits vary from year to year.

Use herring, which is as fresh as possible when trolling. Fresh bait more likely to Chinook would be interested. Blood or cloudiness in the eye of a herring is a sign that the bait is bad.
Troll in waters with depths ranging between 12 and 30 feet deep. Spring Chinook is located in shallower waters than later in the year.
Use fishing locators to determine at what depth the fish are hanging on. If you do not fish finder is available, try to keep the bait at least two meters above the bottom.
Troll incoming tide and the first hour of the outgoing tide for the best results. The more you up the river fishing, the less effect the wave will be.
Wait to set the hook, while the stick buried in the holder. This allows the fish to hook. Setting the hook hard pull often harms the fish’s mouth and allow it to run later during the fight.
Switch to Kwikfish lure as bait for fishing anchor. These baits are great banana -shaped lures commonly used for catching Chinook. Attach sardine fillet pieces of bait using string to help attract Chinook.
Use herring or centrifuges if the current is severe, which means that the river flows faster. Fishing in these slow currents is not as effective as bait will sink to the bottom and does not rotate properly.
Look for sandy humps and other structures helped to search for fish. Once you find those areas move the boat upstream of these areas and let the bait moving back to the desired structure.
