Headed upriver from Snohomish around 5 with my 7 year old. Wasn’t very hopeful that we’d catch one since it’s early. Heard of a few people catching but not a lot of action. Saw a couple splashes. After a couple hours decided to turn back for the boat launch.

Saw a splash. Dropped anchor. Fished for 15 minutes. No luck. Decided to go troll up a bit and then back to the boat launch. I was calling my wife to let her know we were on our way back when I saw the rod shaking like crazy. (Always happens when you’re not ready). Grab the rod and start reeling. Fish hits the surface and I know it’s game on.

Puts up a good fight. Missed netting it the first time but get it on the second. A nice 8.5 pound 28” jack.

First silver caught in WA. Good way to start the season!

Congrats!

FYI - a “jack” refers to a Coho or King under 20” or 22”, respectively. You got a nice adult fish! Nice work.

Oh, good to know. Still learning. Rookie mistake.

12 to 24 for chinook jacks and 12 to 20 for coho jacks

Nice fish, and definitely not a "jack" if it's 28"... I've been waiting for reports to come in about the Snohomish and Snoqualmie...

Same here. I was hearing rumors but nothing solid. And no postings on here. Hopefully we get more posts from folks.

Is that a Coho? Is that a fin?
Also is it legal to keep "Jack" kings anyway?

Thanks

Definitely a coho and definitely a fin. Wild coho are legal to keep on the snohomish and kings on this particular river are off limits even if its a jack

Thanks, I caught a couple jacks earlier fishing for trout and let them go. To bad cause one was very silver and would have fit perfectly in the BBQ.

Cheers

Kind of amazing they are that far up this early. Must be cool water.
