Launched out of Ft. Spokane with my buddy Glenn. The launch was very icy; backing a trailer was definitely not for the faint of heart. The right side (as you look at it) has quite a bit of sand; the left side was just ice. It would help if people would hesitate for 30 seconds after launching with the trailer at the waters edge; this would limit the amount of water splashed onto the ramp. Back to fishing. We headed up the Columbia and worked outhouse flats. We picked up a couple of eyes and Glenn caught a Pike. We then hit casino flats. Same thing a couple of eyes. We then headed up the Arm and hit both the first and second islands. Picked up a couple more eyes at each spot and then called it a day. We kept 9 eyes between 16-19 inches and released one 13 inch dink. The Pike was about 23 inches. We caught everything on jigs in 35-50 FOW. Black jig head with a green red/gold flake grub produced all of our fish. We had to fight white caps on the main river so that forced us up the Arm.
