Upper Columbia Summer Chinook Fishing

Fishing for Summer Chinook continues to be good on the Upper Columbia River. Today we fished out of Chelan Falls near the Beebe Bridge. This is a great area for Chinook as there are a lot of hatchery fish to be found because of the releases into the Chelan River. We hooked a total of 5 fish today. Our hookups came on both Superbaits and Flashers and a custom copper spinner. Our winning superbait colors today were “Rotten Banana” in the original series, and “Signal Light” in the cut plug miny. We stuff our Superbaits with tuna mixed with a few of the Super Dipping Sauces. Today’s hot scent was the Anis / Krill.

Our highlight of the day was this 25 pound Chinook that absolutely crushed our gear and ran off 200′ off the line counter.

We still have openings over the next two weeks! Get in touch with us now to book your Summer Salmon Fishing trips!
