Upper Columbia chinooks
« on: July 21, 2019, 02:27:50 PM »
Hit the Columbia for summer run. Some of the best fishing Iíve had for chinooks at times . We hooked 22 chinooks, several sockeye,a 6-7lb triploid rainbow and several jacks.

Let those boots spawn. Catch them when they are editable.

You're right, they probably hard to edit at this point, but they sure are edible. Do you have much experience with upper Columbia chinook?

I don't know the table fair but suspect they are fine.  Perhaps not prime but I'm sure they'll be enjoyed. 

Just as importantly, they are hatchery fish made specifically for harvest.  We should strive to harvest as many as we can.
