Default Any advice for Columbia near Boardman

I am going to be up in the Boardman area for a week coming up and was wondering if anyone had suggestions on what to bring for fishing this area.

I have a 16 foot boat but only really fished the lower river in the spring and lakes for trout in the summer.
Not looking to find any ones secret spot. Just would like some general information. Are there any areas I will need to be careful when operating the boat?
I have only targeted Walleye a couple times in the lower river near Camas years ago and caught a few trolling a worm. So I only have minimal experience.
Never targeted Bass.

Any advice is much appreciated.

There is a lot of submerged sand and some rock Islands in the River from Boardman up river for about 5 miles. A 25$ investment would be well worth the money if your new to the fishing here! Columbia River Cruising Atlas. If you don't want to buy I have several older ones and I will give you one! The fishing is good by the reports I have heard in the area. Plugs, crawler harness and at times jigging should work. 15 to 40 foot of water!
Good luck, Jerry 541-561-6351 leave message

Thanks for the response and the offer for the atlas 2gotaway. I do have a river atlas and had forgotten about. Heading East soon and will update how the trip goes when I get back.

I suggest you take a look at the Navionics web app.

https://webapp.navionics.com/#boatin...y=wl%7DvGrk~yU

This should put you in the Boardman area.

I'm watching this thread. The "kids" moved from Umatilla to Boardman last year so I'm starting again. I know, tough duty!

We will be bass & walleye fishing. Maybe some cats or pike minnow if we can find them.

I'm looking forward to some reports.

BTW - I can give some limited Walleye info on the Umatilla / Irrigon area. We never really figured out the bass. I never got down to Boardman.

It was a fun trip. We only fished a couple hours each day for 3 days due to wind and other obligations. Hooked 5 walleye and landed 4. The biggest of which was 23 inches. All were hooked on the same setup. For some reason a green blade in front of the worm worked best. We fished a little for bass and got about 12 with one largemouth that was about 1.5 lbs so personal best for me.
Thanks again for the information shared before I went.

Thanks for the update. It was kind of cryptic, but I got the gist......I think. I want to see if I can find some Largemouth, but we'll see.

Thanks again.

Fixed it. For some reason it showed fine on my Android phone that I posted it on.
