I had a chance to head down to the Whirlpool today to see what the Chinook salmon situation is like and I can confirm that there are few salmon at the Whirlpool.
We were there at day-break and saw only a couple of salmon roll on the surface. There were about 8-anglers fishing with no fish hooked.
Looks like it may be a grind down there for Chinooks this fall. Let’s hope there are more steelhead and brown trout moving in over the next month!
