Default Full Moon and Salmon Success?

Any thoughts on fishing for inland salmon during the full moon? By inland, I mean the Columbia and its tribs.

We know the tides are bigger and on the coast that's usually a good thing, but what about inland?

Do you think a full moon makes for better or worse salmon fishing - or no effect at all?

There's a full moon coming up June 24th, is that a day to skip work and go get 'em or skip work but stay home and polish the boat?

My fishing partner reads the Astro charts in the F&H News ever time we go out. I don't have much faith in them. It seems to be right about 50% of the time and it's based on the moons cycle, for whatever that's worth, that's what I know about it.

Like Johnson_Bar said 50% time it,s right on, That means 50 % time it's not. I look more at the Barometer. if your looking at big change's my experienceis this has more of an effect on the bite. Some time's bette sometime's worse.
