Fishing the Cowlitz River has been red hot. The river is full of silvers. We also have fall kings and nice steelhead.
Your limit on salmon is 6. Out of that 6 you can keep 2 fall kings, and 4 adult silvers. If you catch 6 adult silvers you are done fishing for salmon. All fish have to be at least 12 in. and hatchery only. We are seeing limits of silvers coming from the bank and boats.
Bankers are using sand shrimp and eggs, twitching jigs, corky and yarn. If you like spinners blue fox and little Cleo's have been good. The crowds are heavy. Boaters are using diver and bait. A variety of bait is being used. Sand shrimp, eggs, herring, sardines and tuna bellies. As you see a variety of bait and tackle are being used. Also a variety of colors are being used.
Riffe and Mayfield Lake are still doing good.
We have a variety of fishing in the area, take a day, relax and go fishing.
