It’s a crisp March morning, and with recent rains raising the water temperature a few degrees, Bob Edwards and Megan Heinrich have their work cut out for them. Fish activity tends to pick up as water temps increase in the spring, and with winter steelhead running strong this season, the two Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife employees will be working fish for most of the day. With fishermen lining the banks of the Hood River from just below the Powerdale trap where Edwards and Heinrich work, to the mouth at the Columbia, the two get a sneak peak at what the early risers with rods and reels are hoping to hook into.
