Re: Mid July River Salmon Opportunities

You could head up to the upper Skagit river soon, I saw on the hatchery escapement reports there are still a few kings returning up there. It’s a bit of a drive up to marblemount though. I would wait until the next escapement report comes out tomorrow, and compare it to the number of fish the marbl...

Re: Mid July River Salmon Opportunities

There’s nothing that significant going on right now in any of our puget sound rivers. July might be the slowest month of the year. Some summer steelhead and leftover spring Chinook may still be around though. Next to come are pinks but most rivers will be closed for them this year, then fall Kings a...

Re: Early season bassin

Anyone giving bass a shot recently or going to soon? I'm thinking of giving some shallower muddy lakes a try in the next week or so later in the day time. I'm hoping some high 40 temps in the day will warm smaller or shallower lakes a little sooner than others. Probably focus on some open water slo...

Re: Snow...

Steelheading is keeping me busy. Iced guides and tromping through 15” of snow is getting exhausting though.

Re: Looking for someone to re-show me the ropes

If you ever come back up to Bellingham send me a PM and I will take you out fishing! I mostly fish rivers but I also bass and trout fish local lakes, either gear or fly fishing. I'd be happy to show you what I know.

It's still really slow. Tried for a couple hours yesterday since the rivers are blown and didn't see a single chum.

Re: Bellingham/skagit county fall trout

You should hit Padden before it closes on the 31st, it was stocked this month with around 1200 trout that are about 1.3 pounds each. Electric only but there is a good launch if you haven't been.

Re: Does the cascade count as part of the skagit?

No, it is the Cascade. It will be open to fishing for Coho on the lower section, BELOW the cascade river bridge. Up river from there is Catch and Release only.

Re: Coho flies

FishAddict have you had any chances to hit any beaches for coho yet? I caught a nice one off an MA9 beach last weeked. Currently tying up some trailer hook clousers for those short strikes I always seem to get.

Re: New APP from WDFW - looking for beta testors

It's not bad but for a lot of my fishing I use escapement and flow reports to help decide where I'm going and I couldn't find a way to access them in app. Consequently I ended up uninstalling :-" I certainly don’t use it for deciding where to fish, just for the regulations. It’s easier than carryin...

Re: New APP from WDFW - looking for beta testors

I have been using this app since the "Beta Testing" last year sometime. I love it. It gives just about everything you could need to know for fishing regs, and you can download them for offline use as well. It also has links to report poaching, check emergency updates, etc.

Re: My 39/39 Challenge and Fish 500 Challenge have begun!

That is friggin awesome. Hopefully you get a couple EW bassing videos up. You should keep this thread updated as you go from county to county. Good luck!

Also- what’s your definition of a keeper for this trip? A couple pounds? Or are you going for a 4+ in every county?

Re: Cutthroat

Managed to go out for cutthroat a couple weeks ago, MA9. A couple nice cutties, but nothing else. I’m trying to get back down there within the next couple weeks with my freshly tied Miyawaki poppers and chum fry patterns. Going to explore north Hood a little more as well. What have you been throwing?

Re: Skykomish/Wallace

Saturday was slow indeed. The Nooksack was producing more chum than the creek by a good margin, plus the ones I fought on the Nooksack were bigger and more aggressive.
