May President’s Message

Hello FOC members, friends and family.
It is exciting that fishing has opened back up with all the Covid-19 happenings. We are keeping fingers crossed that everything will gradually keep getting better. It has been a nice change to see people being able to get out and fish while keeping there social distance.
We are waiting to hear, when and if FOC will be able to start doing fish pond functions again anytime soon. If they are allowed to start again FOC will be looking for volunteers to help with these events. If you are interested in helping please contact the Barrier Dam Store at 360-985-2495.
As always thank you all for your continued support especially through these trying times. We hope all of you are staying happy, safe and healthy.

Sincerely,

Don Glaser
FOC President

May Fishing Report

They have opened up the fishing and people are out there fishing. As far as I know, everybody is trying to follow the social distancing guidelines. Otherwise, if we don’t they might close fishing again. The fishermen are picking up some late winter-run steelhead down here in the river.
South County Park is still picking up some nice trout. They have closed spring Chinook on the Cowlitz, so you cannot keep salmon. There are a few summer-run steelhead also starting to show.
If you have the patience and the time take a day to relax and go fishing.
