Hey had a chance to get out and do some Chinook fishing up at Brewster with one of my good friends Jimmy ( Bad to the Bone ) Kearney, picked me up at my house 2:30 am, Jimmy asks me do you have a extra net cause I forgot mine, sure I do, throw net in his boat and hit the road, 2hrs 15 min later arrive at Brewster launch boat getting stuff ready in boat and Jimmy says UH OH! You ain't gonna believe this? And my reply was "What ", I forgot the downriggers and I thought very carefully about my next response and said Oh well we can make due. Got rigged up with 6oz banana weights and leader to dodger and Brads super baits stuffed with sardines, which Jimmy ate two right out of the can and replied "Man" these things taste good! Started trolling out in front of Okanagan, 5min later Jimmy jumps up and yells "FISH ON" the fight was on and 15 min later 20lb wild Chinook along side the boat, which we immediately let go. Then nothing for the next 13hrs, from 5 am to 6pm, what a long day! ! Then it was my pole that started jumping up and down "Fish On", after a long 20 min battle 27lb King "Keeper" in the boat with lots of fist bumping. Tight Lines Keep Reelin "

After my parents dropped several hints I finally realized they wanted to get in on some summer salmon action, and yesterday we found some time to make it happen. It was evident right away that the "Brewster Pool" is holding a lot of Chinook right now. Fish were breaking the surface just about every where I looked, and the hummingbird also confirmed that there were a lot of fish hanging around.

The bite at first light was pretty decent. We witnessed a dozen fish get caught right away in the morning. We were rewarded with an 18 pound king right away which made my folks very happy. We ended coming home with several sockeye, two jacks, a hatchery adult, and the enjoyment of fighting and releasing two wild adults plus two more that didn't make it to the boat.

With the large number of fish in the pool, the derby this year should be a good one. All of our bites were between 18-24' all on Brad's superbaits. I found 1.8 mph to be most effective. These fish should continue to hold in "the pool" as long as the weather remains hot.

Gave Brewster a shot and it was a waste of time, we had a bite for about 5 seconds and that was it the whole weekend. There were some boats catching fish here and there but not like the last few years. This was the first time we have been skunked going to Brewster.

Maybe it's me but it seems some of these fishing guides operate like a bunch of jerks. They have no respect for other boaters and think they own the water. One in particular would purposely push my boat and others off course as he cuts across the bow at will. Next time I think I will take a heavy chain with large hooks and go behind the guide boat and snag all his gear.

Today we had a fabulous day of Sockeye fishing in the Brewster Pool. Our day started off targeting Summer Chinook. The chinook bite was decent, but went dead early. We were 2-4 on chinook In just about 4 hours. Meanwhile we were watching a few sockeye caught so we decided to switch gears, and boy am I glad o did! In just an hour and a half we managed to put a 9 fish limit of sockeye into the boat.

We found most fish at 35 feet on our line counter with 6 oz of lead. Our best producing set up was a pink 1.1 smile blade to a #4 treble hook with a small pink dyed coon shrimp.

This Sunday 7/31/16 is the only day aviable left for fishing the Brewster Pool. Sunday evening I will be heading to Astoria to start my Bouy 10 season. We still have dates open for this awesome fishery as well. Give us a call at 208-861-0654 and let's get your trip booked

This was our second weekend fishing the Brewster pool. Last week we worked hard for two days and caught 2 fish. This weekend, worked just as hard, trying different depths, different presentations , different scents, you name it, and didn't hook up at all. We saw very few nets out. It is cooler this summer and I think the fish are just moving straight into the Okanogan and aren't interested in biting.

Brewster continues to be a challenge. The limit could be 6 and it wouldn't matter. Fish are not biting. There were approx. 80 boats trying. We put in a long day and came away with 2 fish. Some guides were still trying at 3 in the afternoon! And , yes they still had the same clients on board. Everybody struggled.
We ran the usual hootchie 10 to 18'' behind 0 and 00 dodgers in multiple colors. We tried multiple colors, brands and types of shrimp. We went through an assortment of scent as well. We tried some really unconventional stuff too. But, I won't go there. Our fish came off the downriggers. Not so much as a bump on the balls and dodgers out the back. It was a good day to be on the water. I did see one wild King C&R. And I enjoyed a good time with my friend Jerry.

Took my vacation week after hearing good reports about the Brewster pool when wdfw opened up the upper Columbia last week. I prepped the boat and loaded up the camper and arrived Sunday afternoon and planned to fish Sunday evening, all of Monday and Tuesday morning. When I arrived at the park, I knew something was up because the parking lots were not filled to capacity like previous years. I gave it a go Sunday afternoon and evening with not 1 bite.

Monday morning I woke up at 5 and had lines in the water by 5:30. Fished till 10am and didn't see a net come out among the boats that were fishing. I called it good and decided to beach the boat and have an early lunch and sleep a bit. Spoke to a fellow angler who told me that he has been fishing 3 days so far with only 6 sockeye to show for it. I was seriously thinking about calling it quits and heading back to Yakima, but decided I would give the late afternoon/evening a try.

Headed out of the cove and back to the Brewster pool around 1:30pm. After several hours of trolling, I finally got a takedown. Tried for a few more hours with no luck. Decided not to fish Tuesday morning and just sleep in so I loaded up the boat and packed everything away. Bar b qued up some burgers and dogs and enjoyed the rest of the evening. Expensive trip for 1 sockeye!

My son, girlfriend and good fishing partner decided to try our luck for some sockeye. Loaded up and was on the road at 3am. Arrived at Brewster at 430 and was fishing shortly after 5. Got one out of the 4 rods in and had a hit before we could set our other gear. Unfortunately we weren't ready and missed it. Got our 4 rods out and the action was fast until about 630 when the bite all but stopped. We managed 6 sockeye and my son got a bonus chinook. We lost several sockeye at the boat and had several little taps that didn't commit. Had a great day and my son and girlfriend caught there first sockeye and his first keeper chinook!!

ished the evening of thee 7th and the morning of the 8th with my uncle out of Brewster.

The 7th we managed to get 5/6 fish in 3 ish hours from 630 on, fishing pink hoochies behind a dodger.
the 8th we had camped on the boat (in the rain and wind) got up and were fishing at 4 am and we were limited on socks by 7 with one nice king on sock gear.

The foolish moment of the day was trying to land that king n my sockeye net, having seen the fin i gave up on untangling my larger net from a poorly placed rod and tried to scoop it in my sockeye net, but it was about 6 inches too long, and the beast slipped back out after the hook snagged on the net. At first i thought all went to plan, but then i discovered it cost me the trailer hook on the rig... Oh well, it was fun to watch my uncle fight that on my lighter sockeye gear.

The rain sent the fish moving up river on Saturday, but the bight was consistent if you found the lanes the fish were traveling. we continued to catch sockeye on king gear until we packed up just after lunch.

Sorry for the lack of pictures.

Well, I've been wanting to target steelhead in lake pateros for a couple years now and with the west side rivers blown out this weekend, I decided to make the trip. With the methow closed and only being able to fish from Brewster to to Bridgeport, I knew there was a chance for it to be slow.

We fished all day Friday & Saturday and Sunday morning. We 50/50 pulled plugs and drifted jigs tipped with shrimp. we ended up getting NO fish on Sunday morning, 4 on Friday and 3 on Saturday. 6 Total steelhead and 1 triploid. Triploid was roughly 4 pounds while the steelhead ranged from 5-9 lbs.

We fished HARD and hammered a few of the main drifts with the kitchen sink. Of the 6 total steelhead, three were hatchery while the other 3 were "native" (yea right) and safely let go.

It's a fun fishery and only saw 3 other boats on the water the whole weekend.
