20 lb Chinook- 32 in.

My first Chinook

Hi Rhonda, just want you to know my husband and I love fish Tales. This was taken above the John Day Dam @ Lapage Park. We were trolling along the I-84 up to the dam and back. My husband greg had got a 15 lb-29 in Chinook, and a hour later I hooked into this baby. It was 20lbs.- 32 in Chinook.I saw that fish come out of the water and was bound and determined to bring her in. I was so jazzed. It took about 15-20 mins. to bring it in, but I did it all by my self. I am so hooked!!! We actually got 3 in the 6 days we were there. One day we were blown off the water. You know how that is on the columbia Gorge LOL Thanks again for your show. Sincerely, Nova Hagen
