Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:
We wanted some rain over here to get some water in our rivers. It would help steelheaders out in many ways. It would move fish further up into the rivers and make floating easier.
There has been so much rain that all of our tributaries are high and out of shape. That doesn’t mean that steelhead anglers have hung it up.
There are still lots of places they can find fish on the main stem Columbia. The shore line above Rocky Reach, on both sides can be good, as well as the PUD point.
The bar below Wells Dam is a good spot, as is the rip rap above the dam. Anglers are still catching good numbers of fish off the docks at Pateros, too.
I want to remind everyone that the Fishing and Cooking TV Shows are now available through my web site and there are some good shows to see on steelhead fishing and preparing your catch.
