OK, we've gotta get this board rolling again here, folks. Who's fishing the Reach this year?

Went up a couple miles above Richland on Monday and dropped the fish cam down. Saw a few salmon--even saw one take a swipe at my buddy's lure.

The fish are here! Let's see some reports and share some info!

Just waiting for the water to get below 60 degrees. Actually I would wait for the water to hit 55 degrees but they are mostly old boots by then Sad

With gas costing what it does I'm going to try the Reach this year (rather than drive to the coast), but I've never been any good at fishing salmon or big rivers, and the Big C is as big as they get. Without a boat, I thought I'd give the Ringold Bank scene a try, and since I live in Tri-Cities I thought I'd paddle my cat out to one of the islands just north of Leslie Groves a try plunking from the bank. Any other tips that I could try from the bank or from my cat? Don't need the GPS units for holes, but for example, is there anything for a Bankie 'round Vernita? I do OK chasin' steelhead on little streams, but I'm pretty well clueless when it comes to the big'uns on big water.

Take pictures fellas and post 'em here--it may be the only salmon I see...
