Puget Sound Salmon: Showing in Big Numbers

2018-07-23T19:10:49-07:00

By: Mike Ainsworth On the heels of several average years Puget Sound is having a phenomenal year of king and coho returns. There’s lots of fish around and a lot of opportunity. The resident coho have been larger than normal and there’s plenty of early ocean coho in the mix as well. We’ve also released [...]

  By: Mike Ainsworth January is primetime for catching hatchery and some wild steelhead. When curing eggs to catch winter steelhead in the Pacific Northwest I recommend keeping your cure simple, except for making it sweet because we all know steelhead have a sweet tooth.

Puget Sound Coho Still Showing Well

2018-04-18T18:57:15-07:00

By: Mike Ainsworth After two poor years the Puget Sound coho fishery has rebounded. We’ve seen an influx of numbers and larger than average coho this year and there’s still more than a month left in our fishery. We started to see coho in July and they’ve continued to trickle in ever since. I’m expecting [...]

Puget Sound Salmon Much Better This Summer

2018-04-18T18:57:49-07:00

By: Mike Ainsworth At the start of the season in July we were targeting resident coho, but couldn’t keep the king salmon off our lines. For those of you that fished North Puget Sound last year, you know this wasn’t the case. There weren’t many kings around last year. Fortunately, this summer has been different. [...]

Use Brined Shrimp For Drano/Wind River Springers

2018-04-18T18:58:10-07:00

By: Toby Wyatt Although upriver stocks of spring salmon (those headed to Eastern Washington and Idaho) are struggling, Drano and the Wind River still have good runs of springers. Because of these two fisheries a lot of us fishing guides were able to salvage a season. These are two places that are thriving now and [...]

Recent Uptick in Cowlitz Springers

2018-04-18T18:58:12-07:00

By: Bob Kratzer Springer fishing on the Cowlitz River has been decent. It hasn’t been horrible and hasn’t been great. There’s fish here and we’ve had an uptick in recent days, but we are dealing with high and cold water and that’s made catching them more challenging. It’s been a long time since conditions were [...]

By: Brad Wagner As our cold, snowy North Central Washington winter fades to a blustery spring Lake Chelan’s kokanee fishery is heating up as fast as the air. While we have been making the cold, long boat ride up lake the fish are starting their annual migration down lake to follow the food. Fortunately, those [...]

2018-04-18T18:58:48-07:00

By: Terry Wiest The Springers are coming! Meanwhile, the Columbia River is high and dirty. Therefore, many anglers will be looking for smaller water alternatives. On the other hand, to approach smaller water alternative tactics need to be employed, which we’ll cover in this blog. In the Northwest we have several alternatives to the Columbia [...]

High Water Forcing Anglers to Run Plugs for Columbia Springers

2018-04-18T18:58:55-07:00

By: Mike Ainsworth A reflection of high water and lots of snowmelt this week the Columbia River is a foot and a half above flood stage. Fortunately, this doesn’t mean you have to forgo your spring king fishing. Meanwhile, you’ll likely have to alter your techniques to be successful. The springers are going to come [...]
