WTF!? Has anyone been watching this? More Sockeye over Bonny in the last three days than TOTAL Chinook ALL MONTH!!!!!

C'mon ODFW, give us a shot at these things before they are all in Idaho.

I have noticed this. Funny how we are allowed to fish when most of the fish are not there...

Are they just like Alaska sockeye which do not really bite once they have entered fresh water??? Has anyone on this forum ever caught a sockeye on the Columbia?

I don't think people in Alaska really try to get them to bite. My brother lives in Alaska and hates Sockeye because when he is trout fishing they are always taking his fly's.
