Maybe the mojo is back…

Update to my November whining

After two trips with better than expected results, either my mojo is back or I am enjoying the biology of smallmouth bass to school and feed heavily after spawning. It is probably the latter. Anyway, I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts.

In spite of the oppressive heat we are experiencing this summer in the Pacific Northwest, the mid-Columbia River and lower Snake River have remained relatively cool. Yesterday (July 29) the surface temperature was around 70 degrees. For your personal comfort, however, you need to hit the water early and get off early.

As is normal for the Tri-Cities, WA in the summer, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the forecast was for a 100 degree high, so the plan was to be off the water by noon. Didn’t actually make past 10:00 with it already in the high 90s and the bite shutting off. Regardless, it was a beautiful day with many bass caught and from locations I had not initially planned to fish. So just maybe the mojo is back.
