Default Slow Cowlitz Springer/Steelhead report (pics)

Overall the Cowlitz is on the slow side, we've been fishing it 4-5 day a week, working pretty hard and hitting a couple fish per day.
Summer steelhead are starting to show up a little more, ifish member "Timber"(Kevin Smallwood) and I bobberdogged eggs bellow BlueCreek Saturday evening, and hooked 4.
Here is Kev's first Cow summer run of '05....

We tried some different sections of river(to me) on Tuesday and my dad, Don caught his first Cow springer of '05, a dandy @ 23#....

Good news
This week Riffe lake will reach full pool, and TCL (Tacoma City Light) "should" release more water, if thats the case you will see the bite pick up.

Bad news
The Alge/Cottonwood gunk in the water is forming below BC, like it has the last 2-3 years. There must be a bi product from the hatchery causing this stuff

I'll be out 10 of the next 12 days, see you out there.
