Things on the Cowlitz have been going good. Fishermen have been getting some nice fish. The water is still running high around 14,600. A lot of the guys have switched over to plunking. They have been doing well catching fish while plunking also. Most of the action has been up here at Barrier Dam as far as bank fishermen go. There are a few still fishing Blue Creek. Most everyone is after the spinners right now. We are still seeing a little mixture of the late winter run steelhead and summer run steelhead. We do have a few of those showing now. Which is good and gives us a little variety.
A lot of boat fishermen are still going in at Blue Creek and working both ways. Parking lot down here has been better than it was, a lot of them are putting in at Barrier also. So you never know whatever boat ramp you put in you can always work around that area. Water color is still good. We are seeing limits of springers being taken. I am going to say they are doing well. At Mayfield Lake they have been picking up some trout up there now. Swofford Pond they are picking up some trout and bass. They are getting bass at Swofford Pond and Riffe Lake both from what I am hearing. I have not heard much else around the area as far as fishing goes.
Take a nice day, relax and go fishing!
