Fishing the Cowlitz is still doing good. We are seeing a lot of silvers yet. The water is high at this time 13,400 cufs but the color is still good.
The hot ticket for catching silvers right now has been the Wicked Lure and the Twitching Jigs. A variety of colors in both are being used. If it’s a bait day eggs and shrimp have been the bait of choice. Fishermen fishing nights are using glow corkies, Blue Fox and Little Cleo spinners have also been good. Its still a variety of things being used as you can see. That goes for bankers and boaters. Boaters have been pulling a variety of plugs. Super baits have been very productive. Limit on silvers is 2 adults and 4 jacks.
We are still seeing some nice steelhead, a few real bright ones. The hatchery has taken 3 winter run steelhead in. We may get a few back who knows. Your limit on steelheads is still 3 hatchery fish.
For those of you that like trout fishing a lot of lakes have been stocked with more trout for Black Friday fishing. Here in Lewis County, South County Park in Toledo and Fort Borst Park in Centralia will be stocked. You can go to WDFW’s website and check what lakes are stocked in your area.
We have a variety of fishing in the are so take a day, relax and go fishing!
