Columbia River fishing report 6/11/17

By June 12, 2017Fishing Reports

Fishing for Spring Chinook has been mostly successful the entire month of May and now into June.  We are still getting 2-5 fish a day most days, and now a few Summer Steelhead are starting to show up in the catch!  The Columbia River will reopen on June 16th for Summer Chinook, Sockeye, and Summer Steelhead (which we catch all species  in the same day)!  We are absolutely  ecstatic to get to fish for all three species for the remainder of June!  Summer Chinook are beautiful fish that are on locally called “June hogs”  they average 20-30lbs and can go upwards of 40lbs! Up next after June we have Summer Steelhead in July on the tributaries of the Columbia.  We target these fish with light gear and an “hands on approach” drifting for them.  I still have some really great dates left for that so email for details.  Despite what you might hear pertaining to how the fishing is, we always have something great to fish for.  Just call and I’ll shoot straight with you on what’s going on.  Looking forward to seeing old faces and new ones as well!
