A word to the wise: If you plan on taking advantage of the summer run salmon bite in the Brewster Pool, better be one the water early, very early. I got up there the other day and had gear in the water between 6 and 6:30 and missed it. There were nets out when I arrived and a few thereafter, but these signals of fish on dwindled very rapidly. I talked to a few other anglers and guides and they all reported good action—before I got there. I wound up with just one sockeye bite. The fishing should continue to be very good in the Brewster Pool for a good while. There could be as many as 10,000 summer runs still making their way up river to the Pool. It is not too early to be thinking about the fall fishing in the Hanford Reach, especially if you want a guide. The spectacular numbers of fish that have been projected to come to this area of the Columbia will create a rush to book trips. I would do so right away, before the local guides are filled up for the season. Fishing is going to be hot, so don’t miss what could be a fantastic experience.
