Ken L and Greg K: Snake River - 7/12

Ken has wanted to go to the Snake River for a couple of years. We finally made the day trip on Wednesday. Fishing was pretty good. We caught 13 walleyes ranging from 15 inches to 22.5 inches. Most of the walleyes were between 16 and 17 inches, but we did catch a 19, 20, 21, and 22.5. All of the walleyes were thick and pulled hard. We also caught and released about 10 perch and several smallmouth bass. The water temperature was 69 degrees. There was a good deal of current with 3 gates at Little Goose dam open and flowing. Air temperature reached the low 90s in the afternoon. A 10 to 15 mph wind helped us from getting too hot, but did make boat control a challenge at times.
