By Eric Granstrom
For, I'm Eric Granstrom. We FINALLY had a literal breath of fresh air over the weekend. It had been over a month since wildfires had clogged the air in much of the northwest with smoke and poor air quality. It was finally scoured away Friday with a breeze that brought fresh air from the Pacific and even some light rain in places Saturday and Sunday. The cooler temperatures and clean air made me think fall is around the corner. And with it comes a grand mix of fishing for fall Kings are Vernita and hunting mule deer and elk. It doesn't get much better than that! I'm already seeing that some fall run fish are beginning to show in the Lower Columbia. That could only mean good things come September and October for those who like to play the waters of the mid-Columbia below Wanapum Dam, Vernita, the B Reactor and White Bluffs. A virtual RV city emerges from the sage brush, public area just upriver of Vernita Bridge with anglers coming from throughout the northwest, taking time off from work, to stock their freezers and smokers with fall run King salmon. It's almost here! Until next time, Good Fishing!
