Afraid of Fishing the river alone

Post by Chickfishing58 » Sat Mar 27, 2021 1:19 pm

Hi Everyone,

My name is Beth I live in West Richland, I'm trying to find someone that will teach me how to fish the Columbia River.

I have a 17 1/2 ft Harbercraft with a 60 mercury I have always fished lakes. I know nothing about the river I can fish Sundays after 11:00 am and anytime on Mondays.

I presume you mean for salmon and/or steelhead. Or are you thinking of Bass and panfish too?

Do you have a depth finder with chart to look for the shallow flats and main channel so you stay in safe water? Fishing-n-Map Company has maps for the river. Lowrance and Humminbird have charts on their finders so you can see where the channel is. And the depth of the side bays and shallow areas. And watch for the very rocky areas along the shoreline.
