03/29/16 Columbia SPRINGER Report

Columbia River, Kalama to Vancouver

This week we saw little waves of hot bright spring kings working there way up river. That’s been giving us sporadic good action especially on big fish…classic March fishing on the Columbia River.

This run builds quickly so I’m expecting a quick transition from ok fishing to great fishing.

Flows are fine and are forecasted to come down slightly this week.  Clarity on the CR is upwards of 5′ above the Willamette and about 3′ below.  We’ve caught fish down-hill trolling herring in both water conditions so I’m not seeing any real issues with the 3′ vis below the Willamette.

We’ve done all of our fishing so far by down-hill trolling green label, plug cut herring 6′ behind a Yakima Bait fish flash…color doesn’t matter much.

Give us call to schedule a day out with us!



Thank you,
