Indian summer produced some fine late September fishing in local waters, particularly for a strong run of coho. Jumbo silvers, of a size not seen around here in years, strained tackle from Pilot Point to Hat Island and led entries for this edition of The Herald Trophy Fish Ladder. Steelheaders nailed some nice late summer fish, and while the Hanford Reach chinook run on the mid-Columbia was perhaps not as strong as predicted, local fishermen driving to the Basin boated some beauties.

Entries are as follows:

1. Jim Morris, Marysville; 10 pounds, 4 ounces, Sept. 9, drifting a Corky on the Skykomish. Weighed at Jerry’s Surplus.

Darrell Burnham, Everett; 35 pounds, 13 ounces, Sept. 23, Drifting a #5 Vibrax spinner on the Columbia River’s Hanford Reach. Weighed at Jerry’s Surplus.
