“The best day now is a warm day in August. No wind… and we’re trolling for salmon and steelhead. And we catch a couple. And we’re home by noon and have enjoyed the day.” – Larry Snyder
Larry Snyder of Vancouver has spent thousands of hours in the past 50 years fishing for salmon in the lower Columbia River and steelhead in its tributaries. The retired schoolteacher has spent thousands more hours as a sport-fishing activist, doing everything from hosting candidate forums to placing coho carcasses as nutrients in local streams.
