Outdoor writer Dave Graybill’s eastside fishing report

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

This past weekend was busy on the Columbia River, particularly between Rock Island and Rocky Reach Dams.

The 2nd Annual CCA Wenatchee Salmon Derby had anglers running up and down the river from dawn till weigh-in time, trying to catch a winning fish. The fishing was tough this year.

Less than 20 fish were brought to the weigh in station.  Some blamed it on the phase of the moon, and I am willing to accept this, as I know there were some very experienced salmon fishermen out there.

Fish were both more scarce and smaller this year, and this is how it all sorted out:  Big Fish and winning $2,000.00 for first place was Tyler Anderson, with a 22-pound-plus king.  In second place and banking $1,750.00 was Michael Minton, for his 18-pound summer run.  Taking third place, worth $1,500.00 was Rich Stevens, with a 14-pound fish.

In the total weight category, Johnny and Corey Stavenjord teamed up to weigh in over 47 pounds of kings and won first place and $1,750.00.  The second place team of Mike Roth and Tyler Anderson weighed in over 30 pounds of fish and took home a check for $1,500.00.  Third place and $1,250.00 was won by the team of Bob Shelton, Erik Shelton and Andy Hendrickson with over 25 pounds of salmon.
