For, I'm Eric Granstrom. The clock is ticking down to what looks to be a very promising salmon fishing season in the Upper Columbia. For many anglers, July first cannot come soon enough. This is when salmon fishing opens from Vernita all the way to Wells Dam. Unless emergency rules kick in, up to six salmon may be caught per day including two adult Chinook salmon and two sockeye salmon. Any wild adult Chinook are to be released. This is also the time fishermen start watching the fish counts through area dams to monitor how many salmon are in the system. Since we have a couple weeks yet, I'm heading out to my workbench to check my leaders and sharpen my hooks and make sure all my gear is in good working order. Father's Day is coming up this Sunday. Happy Dad's Day to all you fathers out there. If there is one thing my Dad taught me that is most important of all the lessons handed down over my 53-years, I think it has to be tying a hook. Well, that and don't pee on an electric fence or step in a steaming cowpie. Until next time, Good Fishing!
