James Lebow and I made our planned trip to try our luck fishing for salmon below Wanapum Dam last Wednesday. We ran down from the launch off Huntzinger Road and put out our gear off the mouth of Crab Creek. I have fished here several times in the past, but never this early. I had my doubts, but James showed me some photos of friends of his that have been fishing here with some nice bright kings. As it turned out, I was very glad we made the trip. I had met James in George at 7, and we had a whopper king in the boat by 8:40. The fish was 41 inches long with a girth of 23 inches. There was a boat near us with a scale and it showed the king to weight 28 pounds, which was exactly my guess. The fish hit a Mountain Dew plug cut Super Bait stuffed with my mix of Graybills Guide Formula. The bait was on a 12 ounce lead ball out the back. At 10:40 we got another king, but much smaller than the first one. We pulled our gear at 11:00. You can bet I will be back down there very soon.
