Scoring in league action at Hood River’s Orchard Lanes has definitely been a challenge for just about everybody, but we’re only a few weeks into the season. So, it will get better, just hang in there, bowlers — you’ve still got a few weeks to go to get into mid-season form. Maybe, try some practice?

With over 800,000 fall chinook having passed above Bonneville Dam this fall, the fishing has been really good this season on the Columbia with many anglers finding success at the mouths of the White Salmon and Klickitat rivers.
