From Arizona.Need all the help I can get

The best tip I ever followed was locating a nice quiet deep hole..where no other fishermen or cops are around..you ignite one stick of dynamite at a time and quickly submerge the dynamite before it discharges. You must have a net to scoop fish as they float back down river. You must not waste fish and should net all that float. This is far easier than gill netting. And should be cheaper too.

When the chinook salmon make their spawning runs upstream they are fairly easy to catch with large plugs.

Great Fighters. I recommed that you hire a guide to get these things. The guide I got to is Capt. Ken Nidlinger (I hope I didn't misspell the old man's name) He runs a charter boat out in Michigan on the St. Joseph river. Look him up. He ain't cheap, but he'll give you an expierence of a life-time.

I think that herring strips or GIBBS MINNOW work good. I like to bottom bounce or jig with the minnow and troll with the strip. I have even caught a 31 pounder off a dock with a maise spoon.

As an expierianced angler, I have found that Flutter Spoons, whole bait, plug cut herring, herring strips or plastic squids baited with herring strips are often the most effective as baits. I have caught a 68" chinook once using the herring strips!
