Spring Chinook Salmon
Well all the rumors were true, this years spring chinook season is off to a great start. Fished three days with the first day out we got 4 , 1 on Tuesday and Wednesday day 4 again and it’s not even prime time yet. I am looking forward to a lot of good days this April and May.
Way to go Lori!
Yesterday was probably my last day of steelhead fishing at the coast until next December. What a great way to say good-bye to my favorite steelhead river. Got 7 steelhead 6 were hatchery bucks and one wild hen all before noon! As an added bonus Lori caught her first steelhead ever and by the look on her face she thoroughly enjoyed it.
Thanks for an awesome finish to a great year and thank you Fred & Lori

We like to barbeque with a Traeger Barbeque. So if you have not heard of a Traeger check out their website. It is an interesting way to cook outdoors, Traeger designed a BBQ that burns pellets.
Nice Job Sam!
Just like your indoor Pellet Stove… Except the BBQ uses flavored pellets, like hickory, oak, and cherry, they even have a onion flavored pellet. It works as a conventional oven or as a smoke house that allows you to do your own beef jerky if you so desire… Ok we know this sounds like a plug for Traeger, I guess in a way it is, but we have had our Traeger BBQ since 1994, out on our deck in Oregon weather for 16 years. Other than a couple of tune ups (like replacing a handle and wheels) it is still the way we prefer to cook outdoors. We figure this might deserve a note… Here is our Fri Recipe. Since Craig is starting to bring home Salmon thought we would give a quick Traeger Salmon Recipe.
Traeger (or your favorite way to BBQ) Salmon Recipe:
4- Salmon Steaks
3/4 c. pineapple juice
1/4 C. Soy
3-4 T. Honey
2 T. Olive oil
3 T. Prepared Horseradish
2 T. Parsley (dried or fresh)
1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
1 T. Garlic, chopped
Salmon Fishing 2010
In a small bowl, combine pineapple juice, soy sauce, parsley, horseradish, honey and pepper. Place your Willamette Valley Chinook Salmon (that you just caught with Craig) in shallow bowl and refrigerate 1 hour. Turn steaks over and continue marinading for 1 hour. Take steaks out of marinade, reserving it for later use. Begin to grill steaks, basting with marinade. Cook until salmon turns from bright to pale color. DO NOT OVERCOOK! Bring the remainder of the marinade to a boil, then simmer until it turns to a sauce like consistency, pour over salmon. Top with a slice of lemon. Serves 4. Enjoy….
