    Hey Jon, Since this is not a "Freshwater Report" and this section does not get alot of views, you may want to try posting on the general section of the WA BD board. I'm not a big freshwater guy, but alot of guys "should" steer you in the right direction. Just trying to help........

    Jon,

    If you are thinking about doing some river fishing and are unfamiliar with the PacNW river stuff, you might want to consider looking into hiring a guide.

    Or, do a little youtubing for methods and grab a piece of the Columbia river shoreline below the Bonneville dam. You might catch a fish, but you will certainly see some beautiful scenery.

    Don't forget your rain gear.

    If you want to drive to the center of the state, the Potholes Reservoir has a couple of miles of solid fish structure along the face of the earthen dam where you can cast for walleye and smallmouth. The bank is made of large rocks and you will need a bit of agility to negotiate it, but there is more fishable water than you will be able to cover in a day. Jigs with plastics or night crawler, crank baits or a crawler under a float will produce well. The lake also has crappies, bluegills, trout, catfish and carp. This is high desert with sagebrush. The weather will most likely be better, you probably won't need rain gear, but be aware the rattlesnakes will start coming out as the weather warms.

    Good luck!
