We are getting into the heart of the fall salmon fishery below Priest Rapids Dam. Fishing is improving daily as more and more Chinook make their way up the Columbia. If you haven’t made it to Vernita yet or haven’t fished here before there are a couple things you can do to improve your odds on catching of them. I have done a couple of videos with Shane Magnon on fishing in the Vernita area, and we always take the time to explain in detail what we are doing while on the water. These videos can be very helpful. To watch “Fall Kings at Vernita with Shane Magnuson”, or “Fishing Eggs at Vernita with Shane Magnuson”, just log onto and go to the Fishing TV Page. You can click and watch right on your computer. Also, a very good guide to fishing the Hanford Reach was published by my brother Rick Graybill. It is very detailed with maps of the Reach and instructions on how to fish different techniques. These are available at Hooked on Toys in Wenatchee. You can stop by the store or get a copy sent to you by mail by calling Hooked on Toys at 509-663-0740.
