July Fishing Report

Things on the Cowlitz River I am going to have to say are about the same. They are getting some nice fish but still putting their time in. Sometimes, you know, it takes patience and time. And from what I am hearing the run is still like seven to eight pounders but nice bright fish.
The river has stayed right at 2400 now for quite a few days. That’s good as there are no fluctuations of the water. The water is clear. Other then low, is is in really good shape. Most all of the action is coming from Blue Creek and down.

There is hardly anyone fishing at Barrier Dam at all. Sometimes a boat or two goes in down here and works their way down. Or drift boats will put in here and go all the way down to Blue Creek or Mission. All in all I would say the river is doing about the same. Mayfield Lake they have been getting some nice trout I hear. Riffe Lake have been getting some silvers and some bass. Swofford Pond they have been getting catfish and trout. South County park they are still picking up some nice trout.
We still have a variety of fishing in the area. Take a nice day and go fishing!

And as always, Thank you!
