After three trips to White Bluff and getting Skunked, finally had success,it sure has being a different year. we put 4 nice ones in the boat on our annual trip with my two sons. We pick up one of them at the airport at 11:30pm thursday, and headed to the camp ground in Othello, got there and set up camp, around 1:30 am the rain came pouring. Up by 5 am in the rain, run to store get some coffee and headed to the boat launch. Only a few boat on line and in the water by 6, Windy, Waves, Current, High water level = the perfect fishing conditions we were hoping for!

Stated trolling super baits and Quick fish, on 45 ft deep, it wasn't easy to keep the boat straight, in fact we were pointing 45 degrees to the current due to the wind, before 7 we had the fish bite but we lost it nearing the boat, already better that 3 previous trips, about 8 we switched to eggs at the bottom, fishing the deeper holes, and BANG, it swallowed the hole egg corkies set up, there was no chance it would have get off. From there it was good action until early afternoon the wind stopped current changed and bite wend dead.

At the end we had 8 take dows and 4 fish in the boat. We lost the biggest fish I had ever had at the Ridge, we fought it for a good 15 to 20 minutes, we had it at the boat a few times to take a run to the bottom, ones it was "ready to be netted we could not get it on the net, way to big for it, and as we try we end up hitting on the head and getting it loose, a big big hooked nose male, my guess would be it was over 45 lbs.

Saturday was a lake like fishing, very little current and we did not get any bites and only a few boat had luck.

Can't wait to get back

White Bluff was a Big fat 0, two days, one fish lost at the boat no other action, Friday were only 16 fish reported according to the fish chequer out of 28 boats, at least there was not a long line at the boat launch Friday.

Saturday was pretty busy got there at 5:30 and over a hour to get in the water, at noon after not seen any fish caught, we decided to boat up the river to hit some of the spot and do some sightseeing, just love the part of the river, we fished the regular spot all the way to Vernita and did not see any action, we stop to speak to one of the fish chequer at Vernita and he had no fish reported it was 2 pm! a guide came in as we were there with 2 jack.

The one interesting thing the checker said was that at Ring Gold Friday there where over 150 fish reported , and the checker had missed many boat because he was overwhelmed with the number of fish coming in.

Another beautiful day in the Mighty Columbia.

This is a report for the afternoon of Tuesday 9/20, all day Wednesday 9/21 and Thursday 9/22, and the morning of Friday 9/23. Two guys & four rods, fishing the area from Ringold up through the Powerline hole just above the wooden powerline next to the old Hanford town site. Our fishing technique was purely backtrolling plugs (Kwikfish and other brands of flat fish), with a tuna wrap.

Tuesday we got on the water about 2:30pm and fished until about 6:30, and only got one, a 13 pounder. Had a couple other take downs that didn't stick.

Wednesday was a good day, we got five, incliuding the pictured hog that ran 30.5lbs on the scale at the butcher shop in Pasco later.

Thursday was epic, we limited with 6 in the boat at about 4:00.

Friday we got off the water about 1:00 with three in the box. One of those three was a 23 pounder, good sized fish that put up a great 45 minute fight.

Although a lot of the fish had some red showing, they all cut really nice and orange. The take from Tuesday night through Thursday (12 fish) ended up as 110lbs of filets, see the pic of the stuffed 120qt cooler.

Can't wait to go back. We'll be out there every week until the fat lady sings. You guys can have the weekends and the bumper boats, us retired guys will fish during the week. Look for the white Larson with the twin mercs and Idaho license and say hello.

Fishing contines to be decent for Fall Chinook Salmon here on the Hanford Reach. We are still averaging 4-6 fish to the boat each day, but as every day passes more and more fish are in the area. This fishery is on the cusp of breaking wide open. We continue to pick up most of our fish backtrolling plugs and eggs and downstream trolling superbaits and flashers. When the water is low we downstream troll and when the water is up or rising we backtroll. Our most productive superbaits have been the hot Tamale in the original series and also the rotten banana in the original series.

We still have a few open dates left this month, and the fist week of October. For September we have 2 seats open this coming Thursday, and a full boat open this Friday the 23rd. For the first week of October we have the 3rd and 4th open for full boats and one seat open on the 5th. To book your trip Book online now button on our homepage.



We also have plenty of open dates in October for Snake River Steelhead fishing, and also this year we will be working as an employee for Reel Time Fishing to offer Clearwater River, Idaho Steelhead Fishing trips. It's going to be a great year on the Clearwater especially so give us a call at 208-861-0654 to talk to us about this great opportunity.

Took off from the launch at 6:00 with four limits to catch! Put our seahawk superbait out in 35-40 feet of water and had our first fish landed in about 2 minutes of dropping our lines! By 2:00 we had landed 12 fish with 18 total hookups! Great day on the water! Call Wade for a fishing trip! Only a few days left. 1-508-750-6809

It's been a few days since we started our 2016 Hanford Reach Fall Salmon season and we wanted to give a quick update on the fishing so far. Overall fishing has been decent, but we have had to earn our fish most days. We have been averaging 5-6 fish to the boat every day so far, and really the season is just getting started.

Today our fishing started with a double header, and we continued to have a decent bite for the next few hours. Like the past few days the bite slowed down a little toward noon.

Our best action has been downstream trolling flashers and superbaits stuffed with our tuna concoctions. This fishery is just getting warmed up. We should see some fantastic fishing over the next few weeks.

We have some open dates! I have 2 seats open on Monday the 19th, 2 seats open Thursday the 22nd, a full open boat on Friday the 23rd, and just had a cancellation for the 3rd - 5th of October. These are absolutely prime dates. Give me a call at 208-861-0654 or click on the Book online button on our home page to get your trip lined up.

There are chinook to be caught on the Hanford reach! I was on the water at 5:00 this morning and had my super baits in the water shortly thereafter. It was shaping up to be another good morning on the river with the first fish caught on an original style blue and chrome superbait and clear pro troll flasher at 5:45. Unfortunately that was the end of our short trip due to difficulties with the kicker motor, but we will be back out as soon as we get it going again in a few days! These fish are great practice for the big fall run without the crowd on the river or at the boat launch! We still have a few days left in September and a few in October for fall chinook. Call one of the numbers in the ad at the top of the page to book your trip now! I will be reporting again when the fall fish get here! Good luck and be safe!!

To cap off the 2015 Chinook season I took a guided trip at Hanford which I've been meaning to do for several years. We pounded the White Bluffs hole for eight hours to squeak out eight fish, two per fisherman and four shy of a limit. It started off quick with both my friend's and my Dad landing fish in the misty morning. We had a bite that I missed by not setting the hook. I felt like the fish was just mouthing the eggs, but my fishing partners thought otherwise and I caught all the flack until I got the next fish a couple hours later which put up a great fight and was around 15 lbs.

From then on it was a fish here and there until our last fish as the sun was setting, which was the 25 lb buck that absolutely crushed a kwikfish. I was a little disappointed that we didn't move or switch to the most productive bait (eggs) during the day, but I was happy to fish White Bluffs as I gained confidence that I can fish that area out of my boat this coming season.

We backtrolled two rods with divers and eggs and two rods with kwikfish style plugs off the riggers all day. The first and last fish came off of the plugs, the rest of the fish including at least four or five missed bites came off of the eggs. Again, not sure why we didn't switch to the obviously more productive method, but regardless our guide worked hard for the fish and we were happy to end up with what we got.

It was a pretty slow day out there and we didn't see lots of other boats catching fish. The fish were all colored up with about half of the meat being quality. I was sad to see the big boy go down and his meat was as white as a sheet. Would of liked him to contribute to the gene pool but ah well, it was not my boat. Definitely learned of the quality size of the fish with fish ranging from 15 to 25 lbs, excluding the couple of smaller ones. Thank you to everyone who posts on the reach, looking forward to seeing you out there next year and maybe getting out with Captain Dave or one of the guides that sponsors our site. Tight lines all, and enjoy the video...
