Columbia River Fishing Report for 10/8/16

Fishing inland for Fall Chinook and Coho Salmon has been spectacular through the month of September and still into October!  We have been averaging six to ten fish a day in the fish box with many more losses and short bites! The PNW rain has finally arrived and the fish are loving it.  Water temperatures have dropped and the fish are biting very well.  We are still targeting the Fall Kings and Coho on the Columbia River for now, but will switch gears in a couple weeks to the tributaries of the Columbia River.  Tributary fishing is a thrill all it’s own!  These rivers are much smaller, and the fish have no where to go besides down!  Salmon seem to fight a little harder in the tributaries because of the cooler water and shallower holes that we fish.  We are still doing very well on the Columbia, and there’s still plenty of dates to fish so don’t miss out on that!  If small river sounds like more your thing we will be in them very soon.  Get on these fish while they’re still around!
