Here is a quick fishing report for the Columbia River from Marvin’s Guide Service.
Steelhead fishing has been good on the Columbia River in the Gorge, red on red number 5 blade has been a good bet for summer Steelhead. I have been fishing the top half of the shad rack in around 9 foot of water, water is very fast so please be extra careful when you drop or pull your anchor up.
Chinook Salmon fishing is closed on the Columbia River, Columbia River will open back up August 1, the Columbia River is expected to have a very strong run of Chinook salmon and also a good run of Sliver Salmon this fall.
