Thinking of lauching my sled this weekend and hitting the Lewis for silvers. Any recent reports would be appreciated particularly on the mid to lower river area.

Lots of fish around and still coming in.. I would hit the lower river below the Golf course, flows are good and rumors of fresh late summers millin around down low! I know the fish at the hatch are starting to turn, and you don't want to mess with that crowd... No need to if you have a sled... Rumors of fish Up river of the hatch also... Bring WD 40!

FastAction,

Thanks for the report. Just curious what the boat traffic has been like lately on the weekends? I want to go but if it's going to be a zoo in every hole I may look for an alternative.

About 30% of the fish we are seeing are keepable. About 10% are in excellent (fresh water) condition. So, there are still some "type S" Coho coming in.

There are a lot of fish heading up to the dam. last Monday we removed 800 from the trap and this Thursday we moved an additional 1200 from the Merwin trap. 95% Coho the rest Chinook and Steelhead.

Of the Chinook we are seeing, most of them are Tules and we are seeing a small amount of Lewis River brites.

Word of warning: Above the hatchery up to the upper intakes there are a lot of Tule redds. Pretty soon they will turn over most every rock in that stretch.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of jokers fishing right through the redds. :mad:

Pretty soon it will be very difficult to fish around the redds.

:smile:
