My name is Green Eggs and Ham. I’m a goat.
I’m also an assistant fishing guide. I work with my human, Graham from Chillbilly Sport Fishing Charters. We drift the Columbia River in Castlegar BC eating potato chips and searching for big rainbows and walleye.
When we’re fishing for the big rainbows our go-to lures are the Len Thompson Dimpled Series. Flame and White Xtra Heavy (XFW) and Red and White Xtra Heavy (XRW) are very effective lures in the big waters and heavy currents of the Columbia.
Graham likes to fish fast shallow runs by retrieving the lure along a nice seam in the water, or the big deep Eddies (an Eddy is a circular current of water) along a nice foam line. We recommend using a really good quality ball-bearing swivel in the river as the current can spin your line causing casting issues.
Another piece of advice? If you’re not catching anything in the river, cast where you don’t think the fish are, they’ll surprise you sometimes.
