Whale in Columbia River 90 miles from Ocean

Greg Price

Love da little fishies
Just saw on KGW Portland OR TV station fishermen documented a Whale off Sauvie Island near Portland on the dividing line between Oregon and Washington

I grew up swimming, water skiing and playing on the beaches of the Columbia and Willamette

As a little kid, i worried sharks may be able to swim up that far after seeing "Jaws" movie. Now I wonder if that fear was real.

Not first time whale has been spotted far up Columbia river.. https://www.chinookobserver.com/the...cle_79c3e677-15f4-5dca-b07a-c56ac5e8ef17.html

Here is recent sighting of Whale near Portland by gear fishers in a boat. https://www.kgw.com/video/news/loca...land/283-8f4a2fd4-e709-4d6a-8ef8-8d77c342e825

i never should have left longview. i had my 18k boat, i had it made. I miss going into bobs, miss hooking kings on the cowlitz, and in the columbia. I'm trying to move back to LV. just waiting for an apt. to become available. Hooking steelhead on the kalama. Miss it all so much. i'll never be able to have a boat like that again so just be careful when making decisions in life.

Plans can change. Nothing is concrete. If you want it. Go get it.
