I guess two are of same fish.

Shortbus Super Series chrome swirly flasher, 12 oz short dropper, red and brass and red copper and green spinner. Kicker hookset, modest drag, most on barbless.

No coho yet.

Solo + troll + still finding the moment to take the pics... That's dedication!

Worked a 10 hour shift Friday and thought to myself I should check on the boat on the way home as it’s been a few days. It was a little windy out so I thought it would just be a quick stop to see it was still above water and the batteries still had charge. Before I know it the boat is untied and I’m headed out!
The willamette was okay but once into the mighty Columbia 10mph west winds created 3’ rollers. I could have( should have) turned around but the wife was at the beach with a friend so I figured what the hay I’ll make a pass. One uphill pass with a plug marked a few shallow fish but no biters. Turned around and started going downhill with a pro troll 3.5 and didn’t make it 50’ before got a good ol yank yank from something below. Reeled in a feisty little tule jack. Released him and headed for the barn.
I hope the cohos show up as I’d like to figure out a way to target them. Even if they don’t it’s still relaxing burning gas watching the sonar watching my rod. Waiting for that takedown that even if it doesn’t happen there will still be a beautiful sunset to take a picture of.

We went 3/8 on released Chinook, no coho.

Saw three clipped coho retained.



And here’s a first - white pelicans at the mouth of the Kalama. I’ve fished this area since 1995 regularly, and this is the first time I’ve seen them using this area and on the ground.

Are they considered a invasive species ? I’m assuming their from Cali to. I will google them. I guess the proper term would be NON native to our area. Similar to the California Sea Lion.

Derrick and Lilnorthcoast, I just checked my bird book, Birds of the Pacific NW Coast by Baron and Acorn. Their coverage for the white pelican is,
"North America's only other pelican, the American White Pelican, is found along the NW coast only rarely. It is white with black wingtips, and it almost never dives for fish."
I wish they had said where it is more commonly found. Maybe to the south of us. Google will know. I've seen them in the Trojan Ponds on the way to Prescott Beach a few times.
Now- back to reports!

White pelicans are very much native. Unfortunately, most of their nesting colonies got wiped out when wetlands got drained and converted into agricultural lands. I recall reading a few years ago that the nesting areas in the Klamath wildlife refuges were the last ones they had left in the Pacific Northwest.

Thanks for the update. I didn’t realize we had a inland pelican that didn’t really dive for fish. Range looks partially inland to me. Learn something new every day

Released a nice nook and broke off a hot chrome silver yesterday. Only boat out there for a long while and a couple others came and went.

SO people fishing with protrolls and 3.5's. Since the river is closed for kings, is it frowned upon to harass the kings or unethical to fish for them even though (wink wink) we are supposed to be fishing for silvers? So closed river means catch and release kings and you can still target I assume? I would think I would see pink spinners with hoochies if you are actually targeting coho's but it seems the people are still targeting kings and if you get a silver great. Is this a gray area in the regs that could go either way if you got a ticket for doing it?

In the 4+- years I've 6been fishing pro trolls and 3.5's in the dead zone, I've caught exactly 0 coho. I'm sure there is a rare coho caught fishing with this method, but im guessing very few. Would I feel good about catch and release Chinook fishing in 72 degree water? Absolutely not.

I catch coho every year on protroll and spinner in the dead zone. I have caught 2 this year while targetting chinook, haven't been out since it closed for chinook. I got 2 last year and 2 the year before that, so it does happen. Every time I was targetting chinook and happen to get a bonus coho.

Wow, very nice. Would it be worth sifting through all the chinook to catch a rare coho?

I've also caught coho with ProTroll and 3.5 spinner in the Dead Zone. I'll target coho with another method tomorrow but still might hook chinook.

The Columbia was 68F (I haven’t seen it at 72 since July).

T caught a nice one in his boat earlier:




Bingo and I slipped out for the evening troll. I went 0/2 . The second one really felt like a coho ... panicky.

I managed to boat some fresh pixels.

I fished just above Bonneville today. A few boats and about a dozen guys fishing the bank. I marked lots of fish but not a single taker. I didn't see anything caught and most everyone was gone before noon. I did manage to lose a Gerber multi-tool, 360 flasher, and a superbait lure. What a day.

My wife and I went for an evening troll. Within 30 minutes we were 2/3 releasing two strong Chinook.




Then we lost a couple more.


At the end of the final pass, her rod goes down again and staccato rhythm on the rod said “coho”.

And then it said “coho with adipose”.



And we turned that one loose too.

A pleasant ride home in the purple and yellow light, the cheesecake moon above.



And we go home, fishless.

Only to find our daughter had made chicken, potatoes and home made cinnamon rolls for dinner.



What a way to wind down a day.

A productive rigging I used for coho was a shorter 8" 360 that had a blinking light. Bumper to flasher was 18-24". Then 24" leader with chain locking snap swivel to spinner with a chrome french blade along with a pink hoochie around the treble hook. Put the hoochie on first, add split ring and attach treble or single hook to ring.

I troll it with 30-35 feet of line out with an inline lead weight. I troll faster for coho and and try to keep it in a 10-15 feet of water zione.

The amount of weight in line depends on area fishing, speed and up or down hill troll. What ever produces the 45 degree angle is what you go with.

Lights out fishing for us this week. Trolling Fish Flashes and spinners we were 25 for 38 in four days of fishing. Still like FF's as you can get by with significantly less weight. Chinook still make up largest share of the numbers. Did keep seven hatchery Coho. Exact location immaterial as the river is full of fish and can probably be caught most anywhere. Survival rate for releases was excellent with only one Jack lost to severe bleeding. Used some barbless trebles which tend to eliminate tearing when removing the hook. Also, we do not net fish we intend to release. We will definitely be out there in the rain next week.

I would not fish Buoy 10 on a bet. Why drive down there when the same fish can be caught here. We seldom have to wait to launch, or recover the boat at the end of the day and the Columbia was like a lake yesterday.....smooth as glass.

They've been roosting at the swan pond by Trojan on the Oregon side. They been here at least the last three years that I can remember and then sporadically before that.

If I was a Oregonian, I would fish the channel at the deschutes put in at celio, or fish klickitat mouth and put in at Rowena. Another good option is mouth of the white salmon put in at hood river . If you want to fish eagle creek put in at cascade locks .

Coastalhound - thanks.

Just one drive by tonight. Three other boats in the marina nearby got fish to the boat this evening, some coho, some Chinook, nobody got to bonk a fish.

Pretty evening.

4 for 6 today at Davis Bar. 4 Chinook hooked and 2 landed and released 2 so called wild coho. What a joke, those coho were not wild, they were tiny little hatchery fish with an unclipped fin. If you have ever caught a wild silver you would know.
