Summer run salmon fishing on the upper Columbia is at its season’s best, with improved fishing being reported from Chelan Falls to the Brewster Pool. Anglers are having good success fishing Super Bait Plug Cut lures in all locations.
I had a good morning myself fishing with some auction winners at Chelan Falls last week. We hooked three fish, but only landed a jack.
A large fish took my Plug Cut Lemon Lime and just about spooled the young man on the rod before I could get the other line cleared and the boat headed down stream.
We got the fish right next to the boat and could see it was a dandy, when it too one last dive and broke off. The flasher shot out of the water smacked me on the chin, leaving a bleeding cut! This has never happened to me before, so at least I have something to remember the fish by. I felt horrible about losing the fish that was well over 20 pounds.
Oh, well. That’s fishing. I plan to get back up to Chelan Falls very soon and see if I can do a better job of getting fish in the boat.
Wish me luck!
