    It was a good day, the guide is a young guy we know and is absolutely amazing. I took the whole family and he was super awesome with my boys had them jumping in the water and was making bets and talking trash with them the whole time. I haven’t laughed that hard in awhile. He was also super patient with them and explained everything and had them doing most stuff themselves. 

    My youngest had a blast he’s a pretty high energy kid and so Bryce (the guide) made him the official bait checker and fish “Conker” it kept him occupied and having fun. We probably went thru way more shrimp than needed cause as the official bait checker he was in charge of if you needed a new bait and pretty much every time you did lol. 

    It’s an amazing fishery and this year is exceptional the fish are stacked up! 

    We gave some to friends and are having friends over for dinner tonight nothing like fresh whatever that you got yourself for dinner!

    Use to fish the Columbia back in the late 70s. Awesome fish, crab, clams and everything good to eat

    Took the bowfishing deck off my boat and headed up. We looked kind of out of place trolling in between all the fancy salmon boats. The bite has slowed but it’s still going!

    Outstanding! Grilled salmon please!
