The holidays are over and pressure has let up on the Cowlitz. Most of the pressure is at Blue Creek now.
They are getting some nice big steel head. A lot of teens this year. They have got a few in the 20lb.range.
Bank fishermen are using a lot of jigs and corky and yarn. Night fishermen are using glow corky's. Most of the boats that I know are side drifting or using bait and diver.
At Barrier they are catching some decent silvers yet and getting some steelhead up here.
The water is running 9800 CFS at this time. We still have some color in the lower river from the hard rain we had a few days ago.
If you want to catch trout South County Park in Toledo is doing good.
Take a day relax and go fishing.
