Anglers gearing up for Eastern Washington summer salmon-bound runs

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

Anglers are champing at the bit for summer-salmon season, and are also watching the sockeye move up the Columbia in our direction.  If you look at the dam counts you will see that the summer-run salmon are starting to hit Bonneville Dam at over 2,000 a day.

It won’t be long before they start showing up in the upper Columbia and should be here in great numbers when the season opens on July 1st.  You can get ready for the season by attending the free seminar at Town Ford on Wednesday, June 19th.

Shane Magnuson, Upper Columbia Guide Service, will be there to give salmon anglers valuable tips on how to successful fish for summer-run salmon.  He doesn’t hold anything back, and if you want to catch more fish this season, don’t miss his talk.  Also appearing the same evening will be Ron Oules, of Reel Lentless Guide Service.

He will show anglers the methods he uses to catch sockeye.  Sockeye are also starting to move up the river and although we will see fewer of them in the Columbia, a very good season is forecast for LakeWenatchee.  The seminar will begin at 6 p.m. on Wednesday evening.
