Salmon anglers have been out in force on the upper Columbia, and I am hearing about good success at below Wanapum Dam, Chelan Falls, the Brewster Pool and even below Rocky Reach Dam and off the mouth of the Entiat River. There are good numbers of sockeye being landed in the Brewster Pool, and until further notice, sockeye season remains open. Be sure to check the WDFW web site for any changes in the rules for sockeye this season. The return isn’t that good this year. Now that summer run salmon season is underway on the Columbia River in our region, it’s time to think about the popular salmon derbies that take place. The first one is the 8th Annual Wenatchee Salmon Derby, which will take place on Friday, July 16th and Saturday, July 17th. There will be cash awarded to the Biggest Fish and Heaviest Boat Weight, and there will be lots of raffles for great prizes, too. There will be a mandatory Driver’s Meeting at the Eagles Hall in Wenatchee on Thursday, July 15th, starting at 5 p.m. The derby boundaries are from Rock Island to Wells Dams. Get tickets by going to
