Brewster pool Sockeye fishing is on fire! I had two great customers out yesterday and we landed their limit of 12 tasty sockeye in less than two hours. We landed numerous doubles and even had a quadruple. This is one of the most action packed fisheries in the entire Columbia River system and the fishing is just getting started. We will continue to have fantastic Sockeye and Summer Chinook Fishing over the next month. I have openings through out the next 3 weeks. This fishery is nothing short of amazing. With a total limit of 8 salmon (6 sockeye and 2 hatchery summer Chinook) the potential to fill multiple coolers is a real possibility. Limits of Sockeye are the norm and we also usually catch plenty of big summer Chinook.
Our keys to success are trolling 8 inch chrome dodgers with short 12 inch leaders to either a Mack’s Lure Smile Blade and a coon shrimp or a Smile Blade and 2″ pink hoochie tipped with a small coon shrimp. We troll without down riggers and target water from 12-30 feet deep depending on time of day and what depth the fish are holding at for the day.
