I made a couple of trips for fall-run salmon on the Columbia River recently. I fished twice at White Bluffs. I mentioned in my last report that we did well with lemon-lime Super Baits, and on my next visit we caught a nice 25-pounder on a Super Bait Plug Cut. I was fishing with Shane Magnuson of Upper Columbia Guide Services, taping a video for my Fishing TV Show. His client, Tom from Yakima, hooked this spectacular fish at about 7:30 in the morning. The fish tore across the surface of the water during the entire battle. It was amazing to watch this big king cut a huge arc to the right of the boat, back to the left and kicking up a spray the whole time. It looked like a remote control hydro plane! We went back to fishing after celebrating getting this one in the net, and found the bite had quit. Shane pulled the boat and we headed up river to Wanapum Dam. We joined the fleet that was fishing off the mouth of Crab Creek. We saw a couple of very good kings landed here, and Shane’s other client, Kevin from Yakima, landed a twin to the fish we landed at White Bluffs.
