By Eric Granstrom
For, I'm Eric Granstrom. A movie I watched several years ago had a great line in it that I use often. "Is the juice worth the squeeze?" It's kind of a parable that poses the question of whether something is worth it or not. Making that decision seems to be the crux of life sometimes. Do I take this job or stay where I'm at? Do I make this purchase or wait? Do I make the 325-mile drive to Astoria to fish salmon at Buoy 10? From all indications, the fishery in the Astoria area of the Columbia River is producing nice, bright fish...once again. As you can see on our Facebook page today, several of our locally-known guides are filling coolers with not only chromed salmon but also sweet dungeness crab. The waters of the lower Columbia can be pretty crazy with this fishery. Between tides, sand bars, tons of boats, wind and weather, it's not for the faint of heart. Hiring a guide to get you out is a great idea and will cost in the neighborhood of $200 per person. Is the juice worth the squeeze? I definitely think so! Until next time, Good Fishing!
