Fishing for Kings in the Columbia Reach

This year is set to be another banner year for the Columbia River Fall Chinook! 


One of the aspects of living in the Tri Cities that we most enjoy is having the Columbia river only minutes away.  From nearly anywhere in the Tri Cities, you can have your boat in the water in less than 30 minutes.  Many Tri City residents have been out all Summer skiing, wake boarding, tubing and cruising on the river.  Of course we've fished as well but mainly for bass, walleye and catfish.  They are all fun to catch but really nothing beats a King Salmon and they will be her any day!


I just checked the fish counts at Mcnary Dam, and yesterdays count was over 11,000 Chinook!  That makes over 26,000 Fall Kings heading upriver over the dam in the last 3 days!


Get out there and enjoy the action, it should be a year for the record books with cooler river temps and perfect fishing weather!

Living in Pasco WA

There's no doubt that Pasco homes for sale are currently in high demand.  One of the most desirable locations is the area around Road 68 just North of 82.  With many newer shopping, restaurant and entertainment options along 68, as well as reasonable housing prices, the area has been growing by leaps and bounds over the past few years.


With roughly 34 homes selling per month, the market supply is currently just over 2.5 months.  This would indicate that home sellers in the area should have a good chance at selling their Pasco homes if they are priced and marketed correctly.  Average days on market for current under contract homes is a brisk 26 days!


If you are planning on putting your Pasco home up for sale, it would be wise to start looking for your new home the day you decide to list the property with a Realtor.


Looking for a nice home in the road 68 area of Pasco?  See all the listings currently available in Pasco right here or find all Tri Cities Homes for sale on  

Remember, this area qualifies for the USDA 100% financing program currently available.

Float the Yakima River

The Tapteal water trail officially opens tomorrow Saturday May 3rd 2014.


The Tapteal Greenway is planning a group float starting at Chamna Nature Preserve and taking out at Wye park near Bateman Island.  Volunteers will be available to shuttle you back up to your car at Chamna so that makes logistics a bit easier than normal.  The group plans to leave Chamna at 10am but asks that you arrive by 9:30 am to get everyone ready.


Kayak rentals will be available at Chamna but you must reserve one in advance via their facebook page. (link located below)  Greenies will have kayaks and paddle boards available to demo at Wye park as well.  If you've wondered if kayaking is your style, tomorrow would be an excellent day to try it out before you buy.


Tapteal Greenway asks that no inflatables come along, looks like they are hoping for only paddle powered kayaks and canoes.


My family and I have floated the river many times and it's a great way to relax and see some wildlife up close.
