Columbia River fishing report for 6/29/2012

By August 14, 2012Fishing Reports

Hi Everyone.

The Summer Chinook and Sockeye Salmon run on the Columbia River was fantastic this month! Catching limits of Sockeye was very common for nearly all of June and as well as the Summer Chinook! The Summer Chinook also known as “ June hogs” started out a little slower and then turned in to a very good fishery for nearly 3 solid weeks! Looking forward to next year’s June fishery, it’s definitely one of the best months in the year for fishing. Summer Steelhead fishing has been picking up on the North Fork of the Lewis River in the last week or so also. So far these steelhead have been on average quite a bit larger than normal averaging 12 pounds or so. I will keep posting fishing reports throughout the month.
