Northwest Sportsman is descending on Buoy 10 — Buzz Ramsey’s there for the weekend, Tim Bush is heading there, Terry Otto was out yesterday, Larry Ellis is coming up on Monday — and it looks like their timing is perfect!
And how’s the mouth of the Columbia fishing?
Otto just filed this report from Thursday’s action:
“We got four fish the first hour, two in the mid-day, and got five in a quick super bite in the afternoon,” says the Sandy, Ore., scribe.
He was fishing with Buzz and ended up keeping seven, including five Chinook and two clipped silvers.
“We also released two wild coho, one dark tule Chinook and a nice ‘Nook we caught after we all were limited on kings. Top fish was near 30; I hooked four of the ‘Nooks,” he says.
Otto’s first king bit not 30 minutes into the trip.
Meanwhile, somewhere else on the coast of the eastern Pacific, Mark Veary of Hillsboro, Ore., and a buddy were out in their kayaks at what is only described as “tidewater” and scored a pair of Chinook, including a 22-pounder.
“We had this place to ourselves and were home by noon,” the tight-lipped angler says.
