Hope this helps with your next trip. We experienced some warmer weather throughout the month of February and people just wanted to get outdoors. So, we spent a lot of time on the water in the past few weeks. This spring like weather also saw more activity from our fish Kokanee fishing in the lower west arm provided some fun mornings as well. The weekend fishery had us managing to catch some beautiful Kokanee in the 11 – 15 inch range. Always great for a fish fry. What are they biting on??? We have been running lighter tackle because of the abundance of smaller fish, and that has helped make it exciting. Lots of Rainbows in the 2 – 4 pound range have put up good fights on the fly rods or ultra light rods. Although when the 12 pound fish hit, that was a bit of a struggle. Makes for an exciting adventure. Just have to keep experimenting. Columbia River: Rainbows from 2 – 12 pounds were being caught, as well as Bull Trout up to 12 pounds. Definitely more Rainbows than Bull Trout though. Our best luck has been on our Bucktail flies. The common colors have been working best. Purple/pink, grey/pink, and grey/white have been my favorites. Lucky numbers: 202, 207, 210, 215, and 224 have been my best. Also my favorite #10 Lyman plug has been producing, as well as good ole #69 or ‘Shizzam’ as we call it. Similar to the last few months, most of our fish have been caught on the surface. We are seeing the majority of fish on the sonar down deep. However, when they decide to feed, they have been coming to the surface. Well, that about sums up our fishing for the past few weeks. A lot of these fish are really fat at this time of year. So, the chance at hooking into a 10 pounder is always there at this time. Most of our fish have been the typical Columbia River size. Rainbows between 16 – 22 inches have been very common, with the odd fish being over 24 inches. Definitely my favorite time of year to be on the river. The lack of snow lately has brought us some new clientele. Our ski groups have been experiencing something new to them. Most of our skiers had never planned to go fishing in the middle of the winter and they were happily surprised. I think we have created a new activity to add to their package next year. Most days we managed to hook into 5 or 6 fish, although we did have quite a few days with 10 – 12 fish coming to the boat. Lots of action for February. Our best techniques have been drifting with bait or bottom bouncing with bait. Although, we have been able to persuade some big fish to take the fly lately. Nymphing has been most productive on the fly rod, but streamer fishing should be working soon. Looking forward to this next month on the river as well. As it can provide some of the best river fishing available. Expecting to see some ‘Big boys’ rise to the occasion. Stay tuned………………… We have fired up the jet boat once again and the warmer weather has made for some comfortable days on the river. We’ve had some spectacular days out there with 10 – 15 Rainbows coming to our line.
