Walleye and bass fishing remains excellent, but shad fishing still slow in the Columbia river mainstem.
In The Dalles Pool including fish released, boat anglers averaged 5.5 walleye and 10 bass per rod. Bank anglers were also catching some bass and walleye.
In the Lower Columbia below Bonneville Dam bank anglers just below Bonneville averaged 1.5 shad per rod based on mainly incomplete trips last week. A few shad were caught by salmon anglers in the Woodland and Kalama areas.
