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.
