WASHINGTON: Cowlitz remains one of the best bets for steelhead

Friday, July 27th, 2012

SW Washington

The Cowlitz remains one of the best bets for steelhead with both bank and boat anglers doing well near the hatchery. This fishery should hold up for a few more weeks.

The bulk of the steelhead effort remains off of lower Columbia River beaches were numerous steelhead were taken last week by plunkers.

The Drano Lake fishery remains best outside of the lake itself. Mainstem anglers in the Bonneville Pool reported good steelhead results last week. The majority of the steelhead must be released however as they are of wild origin.

WASHINGTON: Plunkers Can Do Well on the Cowlitz and Lewis

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

With district streams headed to the high water mark, steelheaders will be sidelined for several days. Plunkers can do well on the Cowlitz and Lewis but these rivers should be on the drop for action to be had. Fish close to shore with large spin-n-glos and shrimp or eggs for bait.

The Cowlitz is likely to produce the best results as it is getting a great return this year. The Lewis and Kalama Rivers will also likely be out through the weekend with boaters anxious to get back into fishable conditions after the long dry spell.

WASHINGTON: Mouth of the Cowlitz is Producing Chinook, Coho & Steelhead

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

SW Washington

The mouth of the Cowlitz is producing a mix of chinook, coho and a few steelhead. This will be a coveted hot-spot over the next several weeks as migrating chinook enjoy a cool reprieve from the warm waters of the mainstem. Wobblers and spinners will take the majority of the fish.

The Lewis does have some summer steelhead available but most anglers will wait for the late arriving coho.

Boat anglers at Drano Lake are still faring well for steelhead with chinook catches likely to improve in the coming days.

The mouth of the White Salmon River should also produce nicely for the next several weeks with chinook early and coho a bit later.
