Fishing on the Columbia River thus far has been phenomenal to say the least! The projected run of Fall Chinook for 2013 was estimated at 650,000 Chinook over Bonneville Dam. So far, as of the 11th of September 2013 there are 707,500 over the dam! Now the run size has been upgraded to nearly a million fish to return to the Columbia River! Fishing the tributaries of the Columbia has also been absolutely stellar fishing as well. The Cowlitz River, Lewis River, Klickitat and others have more Chinook in them the most fisherman have ever seen. As of the 12th the Columbia is scheduled to close for Chinook fishing, but there are already talks of a reopener coming very soon! There is so much more great fishing yet to come all through the month of September, October, and November. This year has been a Columbia River Fishing guide’s dreams come true! Don’t miss out on the best fishing there has been in the past decade at least. I still have some very good dates available so call or email soon to reserve your seats.
