My buddy and I fished the Columbia from Rooster Rock down to the tip of McGuire Island today. We caught a total of 51 smallmouth. Some of the usual places we came up completely empty, others were hot, and some yielded only one or two fish. The vast majority of were males, so no large fish. Apparently the boys are ready to play but the girls haven't shown up yet. Water temps were in the mid to high 50's.

We lauched out of Chinook Landing. We used whatever worked at a particular hole. We threw crankbaits, spinnerbaits, tubes, small swimbaits and plastic worms. We caught them either on a reaction bite or slow and on the bottom.
