There is not much new on the Cowlitz this week. They are still fishing and we still have fish coming in. The water has been real low, were at 3100. And this morning they brought it up a bit to 4100, so I am sure we will be hearing of a few fish. We are stills seeing some nice spring chinook, and we have our summer run coming in. We are also seeing steelhead up here at Barrier. The bulk being caught at Blue Creek for both boat and bank fishermen. They have been using the same variety, sand shrimp, a lot of eggs, Looney Coonies, corky and yarn, jigs and topping their jigs off with a piece of sand shrimp or a little looney coonie tail, Blue Fix, little cleos. The Wicked Lure has picked up now and has been pretty productive.
All in all fishing on the Cowlitz River has been going well. Mayfield has been doing pretty well for trout, from what I am hearing. Riffe Lake they are getting some nice silver’s. Swofford Pond they have been fishing for trout and bass. A few guys have also been fishing catfish.
All in all we still have a variety of fishing in the area. Take on of our nice days and relax and go fishing!
