7/21/16 Upper Columbia Summer Chinook Fishing Report
We continue to have a great season chasing Summer Chinook on the Upper Columbia River. Today as well as the past few days our fish came trolling Superbaits behind Pro Troll and Leo Flashers. We got bit on three separate Superbaits today as well as a #5 copper custom spinner. Our winner Superbaits today were “Hotter Tomale” and “Rotten Banana” in the original series and the “Seahawk” in the cut plug miny 3.0. We have been stuffing our Superbaits with canned tuna packed in oil. We are often mixing our tuna with various scents such as Super Dipping Sauce, but today all but 2 of our bites came on tuna directly from the can.

We had a very good bite going this morning that really tapered off after the sun got high on the water, so if you are looking for success start early in the morning and fish hard until noon or so.
I still have dates open for this great Summer Fishery. July 26-31st are completely open for full boats. After the end of July I head out to the Oregon Coast at Astoria for Fall Chinook and Coho at the mouth of the Columbia River near Bouy 10. We still have available dates in Astoria as well so get in touch with us now and book your next salmon fishing trip.
