My grandfather is coming down from Forks to go fishing tomorrow. I was curious if they're still catching em below Cathlamet. Long ways for him to come and I don't want to waste his time. We got a couple there last week, but it was slow.
Thanks a bunch

I fished it last year during this time and we did good trolling herring with 2oz droppers on the incoming tide. I haven't fish there this year, but my mentor went last thurs-sat and they only managed 2 hookups. They only saw a handful of fish landed also?!?! They should be there though. Last week they were mainly fishing the outgoing tide, so check your tidebook and good luck. Please post a report if you go!

I'm headed there tomorrow for my first overnight trip on my boat.
Give me a hail on channel 16. My boats name is Sea Lion. If I have a fish report I'll share it with you and I ask you to do the same.
I'll return Saturday and promise to post a report by late Saturday night.

Anyone with hot tips or info on this area, please email me or post up here, thanks.

Tight lines...

Well I fished yesterday evening and just about the whole tide today and Nada, Zip.
There were a few caught but all in all it seemed slow.
Maybe next year...

I fished there Wed. thru Fri. Nothing on Wed. I only saw two fish caught out of probably 20 boats. On Thurs. we had two take downs but no fish. I saw maybe 6 fish caught out of probably 20 boats. On Fri. we had 5 take downs and two hatchery keepers. I think our boat was the hotest one around except for a couple guide boats. I talked to some people who fished further upstream (Longview area) and they reported much better results. I recommend that you pick a spot and fish it hard. All those fish going over the Bonneville Dam and Willamette Falls have to swim up river to get there. Good luck!
