2015 was without a doubt the best year of chinook fishing on Columbia Mike Carey ever had. In this video NWFR fishes the Columbia at the Vernita area with Capt. Dave's Guide Service for late fall Chinook. The crowds are gone, the fish are colored up, but they are still a blast to catch - and they do indeed smoke up just fine!
