The reopening of areas of the upper Columbia River provided additional opportunity for salmon anglers, and many took advantage of it. Many of the guides had already filled in the dates reserved for summer run salmon fishing with sockeye trips. Some of them also took adult hatchery Chinook for their clients. Shane Magnuson limited his group of anglers with sockeye early on Wednesday morning, and then changed locations. He dropped down to Chelan Falls and proceeded to get limits of hatchery Chinook. There are excellent numbers of hatchery Chinook in the Chelan Falls area and Magnuson’s recent success is an indicator that fishing here can be very good. Another area that opened on Wednesday of this week is off the mouth of the Entiat River. A very large return is expected to this tributary this year and fishing off the mouth in the main stem Columbia can be good, if you are on the water very early in the morning. I want to remind anglers that many our small streams are in ideal condition for wading now. If you enjoy casting flies for small rainbow this is the time to do it. It’s a great way to beat the heat of our hot summer days.
