July Presidents Message

Hope everyone is enjoying this nice weather we are having but also staying safe.

Friends of the Cowlitz has some up coming fish pond functions, August 8th, August 23rd and the annual labor day function.

We are still looking for volunteers to help out at the Fish Pond Functions, if you are interested and would like information on helping out please contact The Barrier Dam Campground for either Karen or Kly at 360.985.2495.

Don is still recovering, getting better day by day.

Thank you for all your continued support.

July Fishing Report

So far fishing is still doing good. Salmon steelhead is starting to pick up a little more so the early morning bite is good. The salmon season is still closed until July 31. But we are told it should re-open on July 31 and they are not going to continue the closure. They are still doing well on Mayfield and Riffe Lake for Kokanee and trout. The ponds are doing really well too, in Toledo park anglers are catching nice trout. Limits are coming out of South County park, Carlisle Lake in Onalaska, Swofford Pond in Mossyrock. All in all everything is going good. So take one of these nice days and go fishing!
