2016 was a great year on the water. I started off the year with a short keeper sturgeon season followed by catch and release sturgeon on the Willamette river. The Willamette river provides plenty of action for fish ranging between 3 and 5 feet! 20 to 50 fish days are very common while being targeted with lighter rods makes for a very action packed day. Next we were on to walleye's on the Columbia. Starting in The 3rd week of February through May provided plenty of action and in my opinion the best eating fish there is. 10 to 20 fish days were very common this spring. Next was salmon. It was up and down with the low clear water but we managed to get a few. I spent many months targeting the "BIG BOYS". We did land 4 fish over 12 feet this year with the average fish around 8.5 feet. With all of the snow pack going in to the new year it is shaping up to be a great year. I moored the boat yesterday for the keeper sturgeon season and have high hopes. Looked very good! Hear are a few pics of 2016 and thank to everyone who made it possible for me to do what i love to do!
