Fishing the Cowlitz is still going strong. We have a lot of steelhead coming in. The limit on steelhead is three hatchery fish. We are seeing many limits. From bank fishermen and boats.
Bank fishermen are using a variety of techniques. Jig and bobber, topping their jigs off with a looney cooney tail or a piece of sand shrimp, corky and yarn, some just drifting bait, if you like spinners Little Cleo's and Blue Fox have been very good. A variety of colors are being used.
Boat fishermen are using diver and bait(looney cooneys) Some are pulling plugs. The water is low and clear so small plugs are being used.
We have seen a few Fall Kings so they are trickling in. Suppose to have some big ones this year.
A lot of people fishing the lakes also. We have a variety of fishing in the area so take a nice day relax and go fishing.
