I launched out of Vantage, and fished the east side throwing grubs around scattered rocks. Caught one smallie and lost one, however, it was the hardest fighting smallie I have ever hooked!! 2.5lbs and fought like a lake whatcome 5lb'er!!! I will have to investigate this river more...maybe a trip to the Tri-Cities is in order as I just may have become hooked on river smallmouth???!!!!

No New Posts   Yakima River fishing report (smallmouth)

August 3, 2010

Went to richland and fished the yakima river on thursday, friday and sunday. Me and my brother in law used our caddis float tubes to float about a 7mile section of river. every day we got in under the twin bridges and floated to a boat launch just before the 240 bridge. The river currents were perfect, it was about an 8 to 9 hour float each day. Between the both of us our three day total was 72 smallmouth, 22 thursday, 28 friday and 22 sunday. My best day being friday where i caught 21 if those, and these numbers are just what we got into our float tube, their was many many more fish caught that was lost while bringing it in. My best bait was a ,big bite bait 6in green pumpkin squirrel tail worm, texas rigged with a 1/16 ounce bullet weight. My brother in laws caught most of his on a weightless kevin van dam perfect plastic worm, green pumpkin with red flake. I had a very good time, that was my first experiance float tubing. I will definitely go back soon. sorry no pics due to losing my camera in the river, but most fish were really small, guessing that most of the big ones went back to the columbia after spawning.

No New Posts   King County (Lake Washington) fishing report

August 3, 2010

I am a little frustrated with my fishing Lake Washington today and yesterday. The past two days I have been granted permission to fish all day, which was awesome! However, I yielded only one Cutt each day (18" and 181/2") I realize that not getting skunked is priority number one and I am glad that I caught something. I have been fishing this Lake for the last 5 years or so and usually I do pretty good in Late July and August, I usually use a chartruess splatter back dick night or wedding rings with ford fenders or a variety of pop gear. These past two days indicate that something might be different. I have been following G-man's posts and quadfather(?), and another guy that seems to have this lake figured out. I have also tried Apex lures but I think something is not right, Perhaps my flasher (hot spot mini) and where I put it next to my clip is off (10')? or how long should the leader be? and do you tip the apex with a worm? red hooks? who knows but if anyone wants to give me advice I would be very grateful. I would like to know so many things like size and type flasher Gman is using and size of Apex lure. Or how far the leader of the wedding ring should be past pop gear. I also noticed that these Cutts had had what appears to be Sockeye or salmon smolts not the other bait fish swimming around. I also caught about 5, what I think are 10" blackmouth, when I was at 40' and the cutts at 50'. Anyway thanks for all the reports and advice. Also if the guy in the green boat that showed me his string of fish this morning is reading I would like to say good job. I am the guy with the Green boat as well with a wakboard tower that has a downrigger mounted on it (you don't see that very often). Have a good week. Sorry no useful photo's

No New Posts   Baker Lake Fishing Report

August 3, 2010

Well wanted to go try baker again to see if my luck would change. Some friends and I headed that way by 430am and made it to shannon creek launch by 6am. We headed over to noisy creek put in gear and started fishing 2 on downriggers and with a small lead weight. There was a lot of boats out there and that made it hard to stay in the water you wanted. Seen a fish come out of the water at 55ft we were at that or just above. We tryed red,blue,green,and pink hooks. We had one take down on the rod with the lead weight south of noisy creek almost to the other creek mouth. It hit and fought hard but ended up breaking off 20lbs test leader. It was on one of those micro pink skirts. We fished until 4pm with not another bit even after most of the boats left. I thought all that pressure would push them deep so I ran down too 70-75ft with no luck. I watched an older couple in a small green boat hook one stop the boat to fight it and then get a double header getting both in the boat. At the end of the day we motored back up to noisy creek to pick up my crawfish pots to see what we had and nothing. After 10 hrs you would think there would be at least one in there. It was a fun trip the last time I was up I discoverd I had a hole in the front of my boat and my patch job worked. I was glad of that since with starting a new job I didnt get a chance until the night before to patch it. Now I will have to flip her over and glass her up good and do a good gel coat. I heard after we pulled out there trucking 3 trips a day moving fish. Better luck next time. Oh I want to add the last time out and this time we stopped at the Cascade drive in burger stop by the shell station at concret as per Rseas report. They do have some good food. They got one I think calld the cowboy with bacon fried onion and bbq sauce and the delux is good fry and onion rings. Thanks for the info on a good burger stop Rseas.

Hi from Washington State.

I am awaiting to hear from the mods as what I can post about my guide service, so I respect everyone here. I think I can tell you is that I'm in SW Washington State, about 25 miles North of Portland OR. Primarily, we fish the Columbia River and some of it's tributaries for salmon, steelhead and sturgeon.

Looking forward to sharing information between like guide services.
My take in this business is, we are professional guides and charters and should work together more then we compete with each other, thus building a strong industry and  protect and replenish the fisheries that gives to us.

Sincerely Yours
Pete Grace
