     Spring Chinook are the most highly sought after fish on the West Coast. They are not known for their size, but they are pound for pound the hardest fighters!

     This is a Northwest tradition and I would like you to come be a part of it!

     Spring Kings can range from 8lbs. to 35lbs. with 15lbs. to 20lbs. being the average. These amazing species spend two to four years in the salt of the ocean before returning to their home rivers. Spring Kings only return to glacially fed streams. These kings begin trickling in late January, early February with the run peaking in April and May, depending on the season.
