Not many fish prettier then a bright Springer Chinook!
Nice fish!
Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

My rock,
He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.

So what time do you get to the launch at drano. Are they still writing tickets for parking on the median along the highway?

I believe June 15th is the last day for counting springers. They become summer Chinook on 6/16.
Fish hard, hunt harder!

Not sure what median ? You can park along highway . There was probably 70-90 rigs everyday parked on highway. We stay on boat on the lake most nights. A few of us do it

Lotta guides there as they have to work alot less than drano. Get their clients 1 fish and are done. I personally would only book drano or not go with guide

I prefer drano as you can keep 2 a day
well crap, my buddy booked a guided trip, I pretty much have no say. Id rather go for 2 fish!

Yes they will wright tickets for parking along the highway without a launch pass. No matter where you park if you use that launch you need to purchase a skamania county launch pass.

Guides like the wind. The fishings easier and they only have to catch half the fish lol

We ended up going to drano, first time there for me, what an event!  Started fishing around 5:15 am, got done around 3. Saw a few caught, I caught one early on, only one fish on our boat w 4 guys.  Guide worked hard, wind was crazy at times, mostly a good day!  One fish, had to post one long arm photo!
In common with..... not so much!!
