Ice fishing on a 3lb line with shrimp on a bait hook yielded the biggest rainbow I’ve seen in Erie Lake along with a few perch and a nice brook trout all out of one hole.
Rainbow trout are the most popular freshwater sportfish in North America and the Columbia River is an outstanding tailrace fishery that routinely produces rainbow between 16-26 inches and up to 10 pounds. The Columbia River and surrounding water bodies offers anglers much more. Catch walleye up to 14-pounds, battle massive Gerrard rainbows and bull trout on Arrow Lakes, or troll for freshwater sockeye salmon (aka Kokanee). This is what WeSportFish for.
