A day of extremes-Despite the water going glassy in the morning and shutting off the bite to it white capping and blowing us around in the afternoon it turned out to be a good day on the Columbia and we ended with the following:
-Kept 19 eyes avg. 18" and released 5 hens from 4.5 to 6.3 lbs.
-Finally caught a nice koke that although slim went 22"
-Caught and released over a dozen trout including some of the crazy silver colored native rainbows you would swear were kokes till you got them to the boat.
*covered a lot of water and did a lot of casting and some trolling but the effort was worth it.
-Best color of the day was a glossy chartreuse
-Water temp 37 degrees
