Thought I'd let people know about walleye fishing on Lake Celilo this fall. First I read Ed Iman on the shad run and how it affects the walleye. Ed says he won't fish for walleye during August and September. I went in late September and October 10th. Boy there are shad smolts all over! There must be billions of smolts in the Columbia. No wonder the walleye get so big.

Problem is the walleye don't bite much during the shad smolt run downriver. I now know why Ed was quoted as saying he doesn't fish for walleye then. On my fish finder, every bait fish ball was surrounded by large predator fish. What a feast for the bass and walleye. They are so full that it is hard to even get bites from the walleye.

Thought I'd let people know if they didn't already.

Hit the water above John Day @ 0700. 5 other boats out and I didn't see anything caught nor did I catch anything.
Was a good trip with my son and wife. Marked a few fish but could not get them to take.
Fished Brads cut plugs and super baits with tuna, shrimp, roe, and used anise, shrimp oil, and salmon/steelhead oil. Nothing.
Tried jet divers and cannon balls since I do not have riggers.
Weather was good and it was good to spend time with my 20 year old son and wife of 28 years.

Anyone have some advice, I would take it. I am 46 and this is my first year with a boat and trying Salmon on the Columbia.
I am a rookie and I freely admit it but I am trying like heck!

Another annual trip to fish the mouth of the Deschutes above The Dallas dam has come to a close. We met several fiends who also camped with us in the same park. What great times we had reliving the days fishing and enjoying great food together.

My trip started out with forgetting yhr salmon catch card at home which I discovered at 5:30 AM on Saturday the 3 rd. A quick trip up the hill to Goldendale where there is a 24 hour Chevron and store. They fixed me up and asked if $12.30 was OK? OK heck I would have given a hundred bucks if that's what it took!! I launched by myself and headed up to the fishing hole where my friends were already catching fish. Put out the Super Bait Hot Lava and proceeded to troll at the usual 2.3 mph. Looked over at my net and thought how will get that if my rod goes off? Moved the net out to where I could get it and not tow minutes later my rod did go off....screaming reel with three hundred feet of line out. Wow these fish are strong! I guided the boat out away from the crowd and kicked the motor into neutral as I fought this really strong fish. Another blazing run, man what fun.. Finally got the fish tired and got a look at it, what a chrome beauty. Now for the net; took a couple of tries but I finally got it in the net and hoisted over the side. What a rush I have never landed a fish that big by myself. Glad I didn't have a heart attack!! The fish was 22#, a bright chrome beauty.

The "bite" started at or just before sunup each day and was typically over by 8:30. The wind blew us off by 10 most every day. This was the windiest I have ever seen it. My sons mark and Jim joined me to fish the weekend of the 10th and Saturday turned out to be a stellar day with four fish. It just happened to be my turn when the third center rod went off; another screamer. Oh boy I thought it was going to spool me, man did this fish take line! No line counter but it took a LOT of line off the reel. We final got a look at the fish....holy mackerel it was HUGE! Finally got it in the net and it was the biggest fish of the trip at just under 35#. Life is good.

Woke up to high winds Sunday morning the 11th but decided to go out anyway since it was the boys last day. Boy did we get a boat ride in 5' waves. Finally called it a day with no fish. All in all a great trip, I love catching salmon!!

Launched at crow butte around 7:30am. Made the trek across the river to boardman and lines in the water at 8am. Didn't catch my first walleye until 10am. Plenty of boats around and the fishing was tough. Decided to get away from the cluster of boats and try somewhere new. Found a stretch about 2 miles away from my original starting point with a sandy bottom. Had to work for the fish and ended up with 5 eyes ranging from 17 inches to 21 inches. Chartreuse beads with a smile chartreuse smile blade worked the best. Tried gold but only ended up with small mouth bass which were released. Great weather and Father's Day, can't complain.

We had another great day today fishing below the John Day Dam for great fighting and even greater eating spring Chinook. We landed a total of 5 fish today, but only ended with 2 keepers.

Our best fishing today was from daylight through about 10 am and then again from 1pm -3pm. We did best today on K-14 kwickfish in the fickle pickle color, and a Chartreuse head with a chrome body.

Again tuna wrapped plugs were our stand out best producer. All our bites came fishing tuna packed in oil straight from the can.

We are fortunate that this fishery was extended through Sunday the 8th and I have an open boat Sunday.

We had a fantastic morning today on the Columbia River near John Day Dam! I only had one customer in the boat today but we went 2-4 and had our limit by 6am! Our success came on maglip 4.5 plugs in Orange, and Maglip 5.0 in a customer rainbow/fickle pickle pattern that is only found at Fishermans Marine in Portland.

We also found that most of our bites the past 2 days have come from tuna wrapped plugs. We are taking canned Tuna in oil and wrapping the belly of our Maglips and Kwicks. Tuna directly from the can was key, as for some reason adding extra scents has not been effective. This as usual will probably change toomorrow, but it's a good starting point. If you do decide to scent things up there is nothing finer than Super Dipping Sauce.

I have openings the next 3 days and will continue to fish the Snake after the Columbia closes this weekend. Give me a call at 208-861-0654 to get in on the great action.

We fished today just below John Day at Rufus and got skunked. We threw every combination from cut plug and rouge river herring, quick fish and prawn rigs with no luck. At the peak we counted 33 boats from the grain silo down to the bridge at biggs and all day saw maybe 10 fish kept. There were probably 70 rods plunking on the gravel bar and did not see any fish landed there either.

We have been picking up great numbers of Stugeon, Walleye and starting to catch spring kings on sardine wrapped kwiks, mag lips and killer fish. We will be hanging in the John Day Dam pool for the next couple of weeks.

Our Columbia River Spring Chinook season has kicked back into high gear. We started this week fishing near John Day Dam on the Columbia River. Yesterday was our first official trip and we had a fantastic day. We landed 4 great springers and lost a few others in total going 4-7. All our bites yesterday came on bait wrapped Kwickfish fished in 20 feet of water on anchor. This is a fabulous fishery that really avoids the stress of the other well know places in the Columbia River Gorge.

I have a few dates i would like to get filled for this quick fishery. I have openings on Saturday 4/30 for 2 people, Tuesday 5/3 for up to 4 people, Wednesday 5/4 up to 6 people, Thursday 5/5 up to 6 people, Friday 5/6 up to 6 people. I can fish a total of 6 people in this fishery, but if you book at least 4 seats the boat is entirely yours.

This season is set to close on the 6th of May so get in on the action while its hot! Give me a call at 208-861-0654 to book your spot.

Fished below John Day Dam for Sturgeon water was high wind was horrific but we landed 6 fish 5 undersized and one oversized. Wind is supposed to lay down tomorrow and we are going to fish half day Sturgeon half walleye. With numbers of Salmon increasing we hope to start combo Salmon / Sturgeon and or walleye for the next few weeks
