The mighty Columbia River stretches 1243 miles from the Rocky Mountains in British Columbia to it’s mouth where it meets the Pacific Ocean. The Tri-Cities pool, known as Lake Wallula, is contained by two of the 14 dams located on the Columbia, Priest Rapids on the upper end and McNary Dam on the lower end.

Known as one of the finest Smallmouth fisheries in the United States, Lake Wallula is dominated by rocky structure, weed lines, and road beds that hold big fish – with typically good five-bass stringers averaging 4 lbs per fish.
