Summer run salmon are pouring up the Columbia River, and although heavy flows continue to hamper angler’s efforts, there are both Chinook and sockeye being caught. Many are still make the big eddy below Wanapum Dam their destination, but fishing in the Wenatchee area is very much worth a try. Big summer runs are passing over Rocky Reach Dam at well over one thousand fish a day, and sockeye numbers are pushing eight thousand a day. Anglers fishing above the barrier are picking up fish as they make their way up the river. Fishing below Wells Dam is tough due to heavy currents and catches are slim above the dam. I want to remind anglers that the limit on sockeye is four per day this year, and not six as it was last season. Anglers are still having a great time catching big triploid rainbow on Rufus Woods Reservoir. Drifting steelhead jigs, like the Maxi-Jig on the Nespelem Bar is a good way to pick up these prized fish. They can be taken throughout the reservoir, but there are better numbers near the upper net pens. The launch at Seatons Grove, west of Grand Coulee is the nearest launch.
