WOW!!

What a field of Anglers that converged on Hoodriver on Saturday.  As you will see from the rooster we had the cream of the crop. There were anglers that had never been on the river, to legends from the past all there to compete.  I would personally  like to thank all of you for coming.

The anglers were greeted with moderate winds, with the forecast indicating they were to increase throughout the day.  As a director, safety is always at the top of the list, but with the caliber of anglers and the sense of companionship I was confident that everyone would be safe. The angler that had never been there before indicated where he would like to go, and he was given some excellent advise on how to get there safely from several of the other participants.

Dave and I headed down river to a couple of spots that had produced in the past, but the river has changed in the last couple of weeks, so needless to say we were on the hunt to just get a limit. As luck would have it we started with a small limit and culled throughout the day , but just couldn't get the big bite we needed. We knew that somebody would figure them out and they did. I personally saw the largest bag that I think has ever come out of Hoodriver, or the river itself, since I've been fishing it. It was indicated to me that this team had never broken the 20 pound mark before, but they smashed that hurdle with an impressive 22.86 bag of Columbia River Smallmouth anchored by a 5.76 Big Fish. Congratulations to Phil Reich and Ron Wiseman for impressive performance.
