Fishing tips for
catching Salmon at Drano Lake
THANKS TO BIG
FISH GUIDE SERVICE FOR THESE FISHING TIPS
AND INFORMATION FOR CATCHING FISH ON DRANO LAKE
If you've never fished Drano
lake in the Columbia river gorge, and wanted to this would be the year
to try it. This year is supposed to be a big year for Drano. Expecting
over 30,000 spring Chinook. Last year the lake only had 7,000 return.
Even with that low number we still had some good days. I can only
imagine what it will be like if we get that big number.
I've been fishing Drano for 20 years. Started when I was a little boy
with my grandpa. Throughout the years I've seen the good, and the bad,
so when I hear about a big run my heart pounds. Drano is mostly a
trolling fishery, with some bobber fishing in late May, and early June.
In years past most of the fish caught where by plugs (wiggle warts). In
the past 10yrs fisherman have started catching more fish on bait. The
past seven years bait is all I've been using. My favorite bait is
prawns, but I caught most of my fish last year on herring. One reason I
use bait is because my boat can be at a dead stop, and we are still
fishing. We use lead droppers with 4-6 oz. I've seen herring rods go
down when I knew the herring couldn't of had much if any action. That
won't happen with plugs.
Drano Lake Fishing Tips
Set That Hook A great fishing tip for Drano Lake
How many people do you know that caught their first steelhead
when they thought they were snagged and started to pull it loose
only to feel the head shake?
This is so common, especially with those who haven't caught a
steelhead or haven't caught many. They don't expect to catch a
steelhead but they do expect to get snagged up.
"Expect a fish on every cast" That positive attitude will pay
I tell my clients to expect a fish and never think it's a snag.
If that advice alone was followed we would get a lot more fish.
You may feel foolish yanking on nothing, but the one nothing
that turns out to be a fish makes it all worthwhile.

Another thing, set the hook like you mean it when drift fishing
or bobber fishing. Some time's I'll get a guy in the boat that's
a trout fisherman and they're not putting the wood to 'em like
They are called steelhead for a reason.
Another tip, when fishing with a bobber make sure you reel up
your slack before the hook set. I know it's exciting to see that
bobber go down but if you jerk right away all you're going to do
is pull back on your slack. Most of the time there is plenty of
time to drop your rod towards the bobber, reel down and pick up
all your slack and then set hard. It's even a good idea to reel
until you can feel the fish.

Drano Lake Fishing Tip By Big Fish Guide Service
One things I really like
about fishing Drano it that it's depth friendly, meaning its all about
the same depth(25 to 30 ft). You can set your bait at a certain depth,
and not have to worry about running into a shallow spot, and getting
snagged. Drano is a good place for beginners, and pros. There is a lot
of good guides that work Drano. The quickest way to learn a fishery
that's not familiar to you is to higher an experienced guide.
The peak time for Drano's Springers is late April to the end of May the
first two weeks of May being prime time. You can go to
