Columbia River fishing report for May 11th 2012

Hi everybody.  Fishing is phenomenol right now at the Wind River and Drano Lake!  On the 10th of May we landed 11 fish 10 of them were keepers, limiting out the boat!  With high numbers of chinook passing through Bonneville Dam it should only get better and better for a few weeks!  These Fish are all Columbia River Spring Chinook that are either heading up stream to eastern Washington or entering the Wind River and Drano Lake itself, and  these are the best table fare fish there are. With the limit set at two fish per person, and Spring Chinook prices set at $26.00 a pound, you are for sure to get your money’s worth of these awsome eating fish!  Summer Steelhead will be right behind these springers in July, and we are forcasted to have another dynamite run into the Columbia River and its tributaries.   In June, Sockeye Salmon are also expected to return to the Columbia River in huge numbers!  A run of 450,000 Sockeye are expected to come back to the Columbia this year which is a gigantic run of these also fantastic table fare fish.  Fishing will be great from now until November, this is the time of the year fishing guides and fisherman alike all wait for. Book your trip with your Columbia river fishing guide today, and be prepared to have a ball catching alot of  fish in the Pacific Northwest.
