I had a video shoot scheduled with North 40 Productions on Wednesday. They wanted to get some footage of me catching some salmon on the Columbia River for Chelan County PUD. I decided to have Jeff Ostenson and Charles Atkinson meet me and my brother in law Tom Verschueren at the launch below Wells Dam. I felt confident that we could get what they needed here. Of course, I was nervous. Haven’t you invited someone to come fishing with you and wanted to really show them a good day and then Lady Luck turned her back on you? It’s happened to all of us. Well, Lady Luck was smiling on me. A small jack hit the Mag Lip Flatfish on the first pass. A 12-pound king took the bait on the second pass and another king was landed on the third pass. Jeff and Charles had what they needed, and we dropped them off at the dock to set up their gear for more footage. We had a few minutes, so Tom and I went back out and he landed another king. And get this: they were all keeper hatchery fish! How’s that for good luck.
Here I am on the “set” on the launch below Wells Dam with the crew from North 40 Productions.
