Things are going pretty well, we are seeing quite a few more fish. More spring Chinook, and we are still getting some late winter run steelhead. The water levels have still been fluctuating some but most of the guys have adjusted to that. You have great visibility up here. They are still using a lot of shrimp, a lot of eggs, a lot of jigs, corky and yarn, the wicked lure. So there is still a variety of fishing going on.
And the boat fishermen are free drifting, some are pulling the 3×5 Megg now. They are pulling the super baits. So as far as the boats go they are catching some real nice fish, most of it is in the Blue Creek area. Mostly the boat fishermen are targeting the steelhead yet. Barrier Dam up here they are getting some nice spring Chinook we have seen this week and still steelhead also from bank fishermen coming from Blue Creek. And there have been night fishermen down there at Blue Creek too now. So all in all the Cowlitz has been doing well. Mayfield Lake they are picking up some trout up there now. Still haven’t heard much on Riffe Lake or Swofford Pond. I did hear that they planted some fish in Swofford Pond. South County Park, I have heard, there has been people fishing down there, and they are getting some nice fish again.
We do have a variety of fishing in the area. Take a nice day or rainy day and go fishing!
