Hard to believe it’s fall again, but a guy doesn’t seem to mind when the fishing gets better and better.
Big Gerrard Rainbows coming in to 22 lbs, and Bull Trout to 14 lbs.
The fishing has steadily improved over the last two weeks, and will be in full swing in the next week or so.
Skipping bucktails across the chop are working best for trout, and when it calms down, running a plug or Apex with weight is working good.
Bull Trout are for the most part coming from 40 – 70 ft. on the downrigger with plugs or spoons.
For those of you that have Star Choice satallite TV in Canada, Columbia Country fishing show will be on after the football game on Sunday at 4:00pm on the Spokane Fox station KAYU Fox 28. Places like Calgary, Edmonton, Kelowna and Castlegar get it on cable.
Bob and Carl were up last Dec. to shoot a show, and we got great footage, catching some big Gerrards. Hope you can check it out!! If not drop me a line, and I’ll send you a tape.
It’s going to be another great fall and winter catching some of the biggest trout in the world. Drop me a line, and we can get out and hook you into some of these trophy fish.
Both the Upper and Lower Columbia have been fishing hot the last month.
Had up to 50 walleye per day for a few days – 25 to 40 fish per day were the norm. Lots of fun, and most people took home a few to enjoy a walleye feast. Delicious!!!
The trout fishing has also been awesome! Of course, grasshoppers below a float don’t make it very far around the pool before being hit by a trout. Hopper flies and stimulators have also been working excellent on fly rods.
Arrow and Trout Lakes are starting to pick up with the cooler weather and will continue to improve through out the Fall.
Starting to book now for the upcoming trophy trout season.
If you’re interested in a fishing trip for trophy trout to 28lbs+, drop me a line, and we can start planning your trip.
The fishing is excellent for trout and walleye right now. Lots of action.
On the Upper Columbia last week, we were hooking up to 17 trout per day. Prime hard fighting fish up to 22 inches. The water is a brisk 52 degrees in the river, which keeps these fish very active all summer long. 3 inch apexs and minnow style streamers working the best.
On the Lower Columbia the walleye fishing is very good. Getting between 20 and 30 per day. The river is very high right now so makes it a little harder than normal, but it is starting to drop which will open up a few more holes, and should get the numbers even higher. The trout fishing is excellent, especially in the evenings when the caddis come off in clouds.
