The Columbia River Spring Chinook fishery was off to a slow start for the beginning of April. Now, finally we are starting to see some great numbers of Spring Chinook being caught and water conditions are coming into shape. After we get done fishing the Columbia River for Spring Chinook, we will move into the tributaries and continue to fish for springer’s clear into June! These salmon are the best of the best! Currently they are being sold for $50.00 per pound! Don’t worry, there’s still a lot of time left to get out and catch some Spring Chinook!
We are still mainly targeting Kokanee at Merwin Lake for the past few weeks. It’s been really good when conditions have allowed us to get on the water. This winter is starting to be one for the history books.
Winter steel heading has been really tough due to water conditions. Luckily, we have been targeting Kokanee on the lakes and have been doing very well. Kokanee are land locked Sockeye Salmon and taste excellent! It’s hot action fishing, and I highly advise booking a trip for them. We will be after them for the better part of the spring so there’s lots of time to get out.
We are officially into the winter months! SW Washington was hit by a major snowstorm that has gripped the area for over a week! Getting out hasn’t been easy what so ever! Hurry up spring…
Fishing conditions have been pretty tough this month because major storms have affected our area on a regular basis. Only a few opportunities have popped up this month to get out and try, but we have had some success. Looks like La Nina is back.
Catching Coho Salmon was really good in the beginning of November! It was an absolute blast!! Now, at the end of the month were starting to get a few more steelhead in the mix. Looking forward to March and April when we will have even more steelhead around, and a few spring chinook to catch too!
