for those of you trying to figure out when and where to go on the Columbia and snake river I will post a great resource. all you have to do is watch the fish counts at the dams and plan your trips accordingly. most dams can be accessed for fishing upstream or downstream of the dams without a boat, when the fish count and the water temp is good, GO FISHING THERE!! water temps. are very important, if the temp. is to high they will only bite occasionally even when there are thousands of them. you will be able to see them swarming upstream from dam to dam.

keep a journal. water flow, clarity, success or failure with a date and weather conditions. get your friends to do the same then compare and share. its the old school version of some of the things this site provides. also, fish allot fish hard. be ever observant to all the details and ask those that you see as being successful for advice. a beverage will help loosen lips. info is generally far less guarded when asked about on the river. i know that if i see someone on the river from time to time there is,a repiore built even without speaking and I'm very likely to assist in any way to help them being successful. lastly, have fun, enjoy the skunks along with the banner days.
I agree, keep a log, you won't remember as much as you think. Also, don't be afraid to share. Those willing to do the work will be rewarded, others will just stay away. There are enough fish for those going at it.
