District 18 Oregon and Washington TBF National Semi-Final on the Columbia River.
The District 18 TBF National Semi-final proved to be a challenging event for most anglers The Columbia River Gorge lived up to its name this weekend showing it’s mighty winds and rough river conditions making this event quite challenging for some of the anglers.
Day 1 leader Nick Culver weighed in a 5.75# smallmouth bass that held up as the big fish of the event. Day 2 was a different day in the morning with calmer winds, but as anglers traveled down river to the west, they faced some dangerous conditions. The weights for Day 2 were definitely a lot lower than Day 1, due to high pressure moving into the area and making fishing conditions a bit tougher.
Congratulations to Chris Lambert – WA as the overall boater division winner, Todd Woolard – OR as the overall co-angler winner, and Kory Ray – OR as the Ranger Cup winner.
