Fishing the Cowlitz has been slow. The pressure has been light. We still do have some late silvers coming in. The guys with patience and time are getting some bright fish. We saw a nice winter run steel head this week from Barrier Dam. The hatchery has taken a few in.
Most are still using twisting jigs or the wicked lure. The water has been high. We are down to 9830 cfs. this morning. The cold weather has been hard on rods and reels. Once they get wet they
freeze. Cold weather is also hard on fingers.(ha) Not many boats have been going out. Most are waiting for our winter run steel head.
If you like trout fishing South County Park in Toledo has been doing excellent.
Many of our customers have been going there and getting limits. Nice big trout.
Most are using light line and power bait.
