Columbia River fishing report for July 25th 2013

By July 28, 2013Fishing Reports

Fishing for Summer Steelhead is still going strong on the Columbia River! So far there are only 75,000 of the 339,000 Summer Steelhead projected over Bonneville Dam. These numbers will still provide about another three weeks of great fishing yet to come! By the second week of August we will start seeing the Fall run of Chinook start to migrate up the Columbia. The prediction of the return of the Fall Chinook is astronomical! If there was ever a time to catch high numbers of big Chinook this year is it! We will be fishing in the Columbia River until mid-September and then transition into its tributaries after that until mid-October. There are still plenty of dates open in Sep and October so book a trip and don’t miss out on a once in a decade experience catching a lot of the famously big Fall Chinook.
