Spring Fishing in the Pacific Northwest

Hello this just in,
WDFW suspends fishing limits for bass, walleye, channel catfish on Columbia River
OLYMPIA – Starting March 3, anglers can fish for bass, walleye and channel catfish without daily catch or size limits from the mouth of the Columbia River 545 miles upstream to Chief Joseph Dam.
Wow just in time for some great spring fishing. I do plan on learning to catch Walleye this year. We have a ton of them in the Columbia river and some great guides that will give me information and hopefully get myself a freezer full of good eating fish.
I am seeing Walleyes starting to pop up on facebook and I caught just a short bit of a siminar put on by someone at the show in Wenatchee. Bottom bouncers for Banks lake not sure about the river but I know they are bottom feeders so sill use downriggers to get to them I suppose.
Last fall before Mom died I had Bob Feil boats in Wenatchee instal the TR1 on my boat… It is the supreme trolling tool that alot of guides and local people are using. That is the hardest part of trolling alone is boat control and this will take it out of my hands pretty much
I cannot wait to get out and dial it in. That along with the Lowrance gen2 depth finder chartplotter, I installed last summer and the new Cannon digi troll 10, I should have no trouble fishing the rivers and lakes as I want.
I also just picked up a Truck camper this winter so I can tow the boat to these launches stay overnight and get early starts on the fishing and in the heat of the day lay in the camper and fish the evening bite. Since I do have 2 cats at home I cannot stay gone more than a couple of days at a time and I do have this business that when I do get orders folks will not want to wait too long to get their merchandise.
So if you see me on the water or towing down the hiways be sure to honk and say Hi.
I will try to keep this up dated!
