|The fishing continues to improve, especially with the cooler nights and increased water. The Cohos are running and being their usual aggressive selves. Tackle busting runs with leaps and tail walks are the Cohos' traits. Chinook will give you a couple washing machine head shakes on the take, then run either up or down and bull dog you in a battle into who gives in first. Usually the chinook wins.
Speaking of which, the Chinook are HUGE this year. We heard from sources that 41 and 42 pound chinooks were caught at the Ball Park last week. Those are HUGE fish, especially in the river where they have room to run and get your gear caught around rocks, other anglers and such.
More steelhead are being caught as well. We saw some smaller fish as well as a few nicer ones over the weekend. The talk of brown trout in the lower end has quieted a bit.
Well, there's fish from top to bottom. Get to the river and fish for them. The season isn't that long, don't wait until it's too late.
