Many prefer to target bass and walleye on the Columbia River and nearby lakes, which has been very good.
In Lacamas Lake an angler brought in a 7-plus pound largemouth bass from Lacamas to the state Fish and Wildlife Region 5 office last week.
In The Dalles Pool boat anglers averaged nearly four walleye kept/released per rod. Bank anglers were also catching some bass.
In the John Day Pool three boats with six anglersfishing for walleye had three walleye and three bass.
