By Eric Granstrom
For, I'm Eric Granstrom. I've been working a ton of hours at the job lately and had a rare Monday afternoon yesterday when I could put it all aside and go for a walk with my wife, Marion. I texted and suggested a walk along the Columbia River on the Apple Capital Loop Trail near where we live. We decided to jump in the old Ford truck since its been sitting most of the winter, covered in snow, begging to strap on the camper, hook up the boat and go fishing. The 420, er, the 6.8-liter engine roared to life and we were off. It was a gorgeous day and I quickly realized a half-mile into the walk I wouldn't need my jacket. We walked upriver from Kirby Billingsley Hydro Park. I couldn't help but watch the water's surface for a fin flip or a fish to show. Every bobbing duck gave my heart an extra beat until I saw the beaked-head reappear above the water. The river level is low. I could easily make out a rocky shoreline below us. I've heard Roosevelt is being drawn down. Spring is coming. And so too is the fishing! Until next time, Good Fishing!
