Outdoor writer Dave Graybill has fall fishing advice on north central Washington

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

The North Central Washington Chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) will have their next meeting on Wednesday, November 7th, beginning at 6:30.

At this special meeting the chapter will be awarding plaques and prizes for their Big Fish, Most Fish and Most Weight contest. Raffle tickets will be given to those that attend.

The guest speaker at the meeting will be Jerrod Riggan of Big River Steelhead Guide service.

This is the group that brought you the highly successful salmon derby this summer. The meeting will be held at the Wenatchee Eagles Hall, located at 1208 North Wenatchee Avenue. For more information on the meeting or how to join the chapter, contact Bobby Loomis at Macks Lure Company at bloomis@mackslure.com.

I want to remind anglers that the Similkameen River has been added to the list of rivers open to fishing for steelhead. This small river in northern Okanogan County is famous for producing good numbers of surprisingly large fish.

I floated this one years ago with Craig Tomlinson, who likes to pull plugs, and caught a spectacular fish. Most of the rivers are still running high, but should be in fishing shape very soon. I’ll be on the main stem Columbia the next couple of days.

Oh, by the way, Happy Birthday to Me!
