Today marks the first day of spring. More daylight and warmer temperatures leads to thoughts of fishing opportunities right around the corner. Since the May/June king fishery has been put on hold, I'm looking forward to the Russian River red salmon run and it's now less than three months away!
The Russian River "combat" experience is not always everyone's cup of tea. If you start with the mindset that it's going to be social, you won't be disappointed fishing this popular destination. Remember, attitude is everything and how you approach your day will determine your success. If you find you cannot tolerate the attitudes of the people around you, don't let that ruin your day. The easy solution is to move until you find a group of fisherman who are like minded.
