Outdoor writer Dave Graybill makes plans to soak up fishing fun at Brewster Derby

Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:

My plans for the weekend are to be in Brewster with my camera to shoot some video of the action at the annual Budweiser-Lowrance King Salmon Derby for a future Fishing TV Show. I don’t fishing in the derby, but really enjoy being there to talk to the organizers and anglers. Everyone is having a great time.

I expect to see very good numbers of king weighed in this year. Right after the derby I will be back in Brewster to fish for sockeye. As I have mentioned in previous reports, the bite is very early, and to fill out the day up there I am going to take some bass gear along.

The smallmouth bass fishing in the Okanogan River is excellent, so when the sockeye bite falls off I am going to shoot up the river and get after the bass.

I have friends that have caught over 50 smallmouth in a day up there, and I have heard that there are some good ones being taken right now. I will probably drift some lizards and throw some crank baits to start off. You don’t have to run very far up the river to find good smallmouth water I hear.
