Tip 1 - clean your rods and reels - warm soapy water/rinse, and loosen the drags on the reels

Tip 2 - make sure all your tackle boxes/container dry out good and fast to avoid rust.

Help stop invasive spcies. Don't move fish between unconnected bodies of water. Clean, drain and dry your boat before launching on another water body.

Don't put them up yet, just change species. The King Salmon and steelhead are biting.

I went out this morning it was 37 degrees and had a great time. The river only had three other people crazy enough to come out.
