Fish Report for March 3, 2014

Last week Tacoma Power recovered one spring Chinook salmon, 45 winter-run steelhead and one coho salmon during four days of operations at the Cowlitz Salmon Hatchery separator.

During the past week Tacoma Power employees released twelve steelhead and one coho salmon into the Tilton River at Gust Backstrom Park in Morton, and they released the spring Chinook salmon into Lake Scanewa above Cowlitz Falls Dam.

River flows at Mayfield Dam are approximately 8,510 cubic feet per second on Monday, March 3. Water visibility is nine feet. River flows could change at any time so boaters and anglers should remain alert for this possibility.

Weekend on the Wynoochee!

Well with the dropping waters I packed up the drift boat and headed to the Nooch. With all the High waters I figured there might be a fish around, and boy was I right! Although the hatchery fish numbers where low there was a lot feisty natives willing to bite just about any thing. The first few fish of the weekend came on Beads pegged Kenai trout style. We also were able to drift up a couple of with corkie and fresh Nates’s bait eggs. Worms Worms Worms that’s all they wanted, the next dozen fish all came on Worms. Although only one of the fish where BIG we land a ton of 12#s! All and all it was a awesome few days and looking forward to this week on the cowlitz!
