Washington Fishing Update

SW Washington- Good numbers of coho are still being caught by boat and bank anglers at Scanewa Lake above Cowlitz Falls Dam. Some summer steelhead and coho are being recycled back downstream for anglers to have another chance at them. Eleven winter steelhead have showed at the Cowlitz Salmon Hatchery so far.

North Puget Sound - For North Sound anglers it's all about chum and blackmouth. Anglers have a chance to catch chum salmon in the Green, Nooksack, Skagit and Skykomish rivers, as the peak of the chum season nears.

South Sound/Olympic Peninsula - Anglers will continue to focus on salmon for the next couple weeks before turning their attention to winter steelhead. Chum salmon fishing peaks around Thanksgiving, although plenty of the fish have already made their way into South Sound streams.

Eastern Washington - Low and clear water conditions in the Snake River drainage have resulted in good steelhead action for some anglers. Boat fishing above the interstate bridge on the mid-Snake near Clarkston produced an average of one steelhead for every 4.5 hours of effort among 112 anglers checked.

North Central Washington - WDFW district fish biologist Bob Jateff of Omak reports that steelhead fishing has slowed down a bit on both the Methow and Okanogan Rivers during the first part of November.

South Central Washington - Columbia River steelhead fishing, in the stretch from Highway 395 bridge at Pasco to the Old Hanford townsite wooden powerline towers, continues slow and steady.
