I dont understand why they need to fluctuate the levels so much. I wonder if they realize that they are making the fishing difficult. I was going to call them on Sat after they dropped the water by 3 ft in 5 hours with no one in the line getting a bit. At least they could tell us so we dont waste out time.

We fished the Columbia for steelhead on Sunday out of Chinook Landing. We went 3 for 3 with 2 wilds released and one nice keeper put in the box.

With over 6,000 steelhead going over the dam a day the steelhead fishing should be real good for a few weeks.

As far as the raising and lowering of the water levels, I don't think that Bonneville cares about a few fishermen in the whole scheme of things.
And I think they play with the levels to adjust the power supply because water is on a limited supply.
