Columbia River fishing report for April 4th 2013

Fishing on the Columbia River for Spring Chinook has finally kicked in high gear! The Columbia River was scheduled to close on April 5th, but the WDFW has extended the season to Fri, April 12th! We are now getting multiple hookups per day so this week through next Fri should be some dynamite fishing! Also, I am starting to book Summer Chinook and Sockeye dates. The Summer Chinook run looks promising to have some great fishing come June. These fish are just as tasty as their close relatives, the Spring Chinook. Sockeye Salmon also arrive in full force in June as well. Although not large in size, they are many, and they are delicious eating fish also! Due to the assumption of closure of the season on Spring Chinook on the 5th, I have all of next week free. Call or email me for info or to book a trip for the upcoming summer fishing season.
