Trip Summary

My good buddy Neal and I hit the Stave River to do some Chum Salmon fishing. We got our arm workout by fighting Chum’s all morning! Right now the Stave is stacked with Chum salmon throughout the entire river. These brutes are aggressive and willing biters, check out the tackle we used below for how to easily get into these fish! Also, check out the Float Fishing Setup we used on the Tips page.
