Fished out of Boyer Park, trying for Steelhead. Counts are still low but I was chomping at the bit. Started at 7:00 am fished all day and only caught one wild chinook. Saw lots of fish jump and surface but couldn't get any to take my offerings. I used Mag Wigglewarts trying several colors, also tried the smaller ones with no luck. I'll keep watching the counts and yes I'll be back.

Well had a chance to do get a bunch of our sturgeon trips for the year done last week. Fishing was great one day and slow the next for us. We did catch a 6'-3" Albino white Sturgeon (Mel did lol). We ended the week with 22 fish with one keeper, biggest was 9'. Keeper fishing on the Snake below Lower Granite and most of the Snake is closed for good starting July 1 2015. Water is 68 degrees and water flow is starting to slow and fish are starting to move back down stream.

Haven't posted for a while With my busy schedule, but I finally took a few days off to do what I love doing this time of the year. Took my little cousins down to teach them how to catch sturgeon. Fished June 22 to June 24. June 22 we caught 8 and landed 7 and 1 being a keeper. On June 23 we caught 7 and landed 4. One being 8.5ft. On the third day (June 24) only fished a half day before coming home but we did manage to land 2 oversized fish. Overall 17 sturgeon in 3 days and landing 13 of them is always good. Fishing is always good when you're with friends and family. Tight lines!

My wife and I spent a couple days with Craig Dowdy of Yankin Jaw Guide Service fishing for cats on the Palouse/Snake confluence. What a great couple days...thanks Craig! We've fished there in the past and needed to refine our knowledge of the fishery which Craig was more than happy to provide. I'm not too proud to admit when I don't know what or how to approach a fishery and rather than thrash around and waste time, I'll hire a guide who knows. That particular fishery has some nuances that make it interesting. I believe Craig will rate at the top for sharing information. Some guides hold their cards so close to their vest that you either don't learn anything or find yourself frustrated asking questions. Anyway, I highly recommend Craig. Fact is, we'll be using Craig for the sturgeon fishery coming up at LIttle Granite Dam in June.

We fished the flats just into the shallow area (watch out...under 2' deep!) and then all the way up the Palouse several miles to an area just up stream from "the island". We don't normally take fish, but I love catfish so we came home with 27 pounds of fillets. All of the fish were in the 4 to 9 pound range which are perfect eating fish. A couple of pics are attached. All of the cats were channel although last year we caught a couple giant blue cats (16 lbs, and 14 lbs.).

We used cut bait with scent (crawdad/anise) on #2 circle hooks, 2oz weights on a sliding swivel. Worked great.

Craig also pulled out a secret weapon: Mormon crickets. There's really a funny story behind these crickets, but I won't waste anyone's time relaying the details.

Headed down to the river looking to see what was shakin'. Main target was Channel Catfish. Got one good bite but lost the fish. I think I'm going back to standard hooks, hard to teach an old dog a new trick. Circle hooks are not working for me. While fishing for Pike Minnows for bait (on worms), hung a Steelhead in the shallows but just momentarily.

From Western Washington Walleye Club members Chris and Wendy

"William

The Lyons Ferry outing was only attended by Wendy and myself. Because of the lack of rain in E. Washington, the state stopped the flow of the Palouse River so the only current if you could find any current was going up the river from the up and down of the Snake River that was subject to water flow through the Lower Goose Dam. No current mean that the cat fishing was a bust. Not many fish were taken. Had two great hits on the line that doubled over the poles and broke the 10 lbs line. Some nice small mouth bass were taken. Didn't get any walleye. However, others at the KOA camp reported getting walleye including a 7 pounder within a mile above and a mile below the mouth of the Palouse within 40 feet of water near the shore.

It got up to 104 F while there. Darvey Tackle shop has decided to remain open in Starbuck. Had a talk with the owner/mayor Darvey of Starbuck, Wa. When the Palouse was flowing about a month earlier, the fishing was awesome. He said when they reduced the flow of the Palouse to hold water for agri-purposes, the fishing went downhill.

When in Starbuck, one will find that the food at the Rawhide Tavern and Grill is very good with huge portions. The staff was very friendly. Wendy and I had a good time there.

Chris"

Hook up with Craig from YJ guide service down below lower granite dam to day for some sturgeon fishing. Man what a fight I been down there four times fishing from the bank with no luck but today I was in a nice comfortable boat and my luck would change around 10:30 the pole bent over and the fight was on it took till 11:30 one hour to get it in so we could get a picture man my arms felt like they were going to fall off. Measured out at six an a half feet it is truly a river monster can't wait to go back down and try again thank you Craig for the great day of fishing God bless.

With all the construction going on at the dam,I decided to go down on the weekday hoping to get a good fishing spot. No luck, Lots of spots that has folks there,with their Sturgeon rods leaned on their trailers and not fishing. Many people act like they own those fishing spots now days. Woke up early to go fish the point where there is a post and wire line that runs under water, although there was a camper there,with 2 guys fishing the day before I went early that morning to fish.no one was awake but honestly there's plenty of shoreline fur everyone to fish. The guy woke up and walked down to the river where was. I greeted him,and he didn't reply.he just shook his head and said to me to make sure I don't take their chair. I said to him to not worry. He then asked me if there were anymore guys coming.I told him,maybe a couple more. He then said that their party of 2 has been fishing there for the past few days and got another guy coming. He did not sound happy at all but I just said that there's plenty of room to fish. If it was a tight spot I wouldn't have bothered,but there definitely room for 10+ rods! I reeled my rod in and left. I got to the car and his partner came out of their trailer. Funny thing is I know him and he's a great guy. I've fished this river my whole life and know many of The Sturgeon fisherman down there. Sad to say,this was the first incident for me. Now back to fishing, we fished the river for 2 days totaling 4 oversize, 1 keeper that my cousin caught. We did catch 3 channel cats on our Sturgeon rods.I'm always down to teach others the sport of Sturgeon fishing. If you ever see me down there,don't hesitate to come join me or my party...good luck and tight lines!

Water temps are on the rise and Cat fishing is starting to pick up on the Snake. Action was very good at the confluence of the Palouse & Snake this past weekend. Water temp near the mouth of the Palouse was over 68 degrees at 1 foot of depth. The fishing by the grain silos up river from the marina has given up a few Cats too. Overall fishing activity for all species is heating up with the weather! Try some cut bait or liver on the bottom for Cat fish action. Reports of 15 - 20 fish days are trickling in and should get better.

The KOA @ Lyons Ferry marina sits on the banks of the mighty Snake River. Awesome fishing and the scenery cant be beat!
