Nisqually is Slow???

The fish are there but you have to work for them. I have yet to find that thing they prefer so my approach is throw stuff till they bite.

Puyallup a Lot of Fish a Lot of Fishermen

The river is filled with fishermen and fish the pinks are in mass.

The silvers are in.

The kings every so often.

Puyallup is Filling with Pink Salmon

The basic set up I've been using on the Puyallup is a 1/2 oz cannon ball, 7'-9' leader line, one or two #12 corkies in red or orange/pink

We fish selectively on the pinks keeping only bigger and fresher. Sea lice are a must. We still scored good. We even went 1/2 on kings the biggest one got away.

Going pinking on the Puyallup

The pink salmon are in the Puyallup. They haven't massed but they are in. A few tips I have got are make your lead lines 6'-8' long, use 1/2 oz weight, and forget yarn use one or two #12 corkies above a 0/1 barbless hook. Use this color.

The fish are moving close to shore. The irony of this is I have found fishermen move the hog line right on top of the normal path of migrating fish so when you can hold the line in shallow water.

A limit of pinks

Spinners Strike

When the water is low and clear and the sun is bright break out the metal. Spinners have produced some nice fish this year.

These are pictures of two Cowlitz steelhead one 8lbs the other 13lbs. The bigger one was landed with the help of my younger brother. He reeled I coached.
