I got the following text messages from Ken fishing the Columbia River on the Oregon/Washington border.
July 27: "Fifteen fat bad boys in 5 hours. Didn't start til 2 PM due to the wind."
July 28: "Today was rather difficult. Lost a lot of tackle, but still managed 14 fat daddies. Today the walleye averaged 15 inches, but were very fat. My buddy did get a 10 pound catfish. That is the only cat we have caught. We catch an average of 8 (or so) smallmouth per day. There is usually a 3 or 4 pounder each day."
