The fishing on the Cowlitz river was very good this morning for summer runs and sea run cutts. There were several people on the bank who had good success for sea runs using small nymph patterns.

Several lucky individuals also hooked and landed summer runs, myself included this morning. Unfortunately my steelie was only 20 inches and 4 pounds. The fish lucked out though because I released him to fight another day. Hopefully he wont find his way to hatchery and return in the future alot bigger.

The bright spot on the river this morning was Black Heron Fly Fishings newest spey rodder Skylar Gloor who scored a perfect limit of 3 summer run steelies this morning which were abolutely chrome bright. Skylar said all his summers came to him on Tube flies from Black Heron Fly Fishing. 360-575-3970 office

The river has alittle more flow than acouple weeks ago when the river was at 2800 cfs. The current level is from 5000 - 4500 cfs. A good solid level to catch steelies in .

The summer runs have been very prolific this summer coming early and in numbers. The weather has been excellent and the number of anglers low till recently. The silvers and chinook have been showing in greater numbers the last few days. expect afew of these to become part of the bag limit on the Cowlitz river the next few weeks. There seems to be no end to a great summer run steelhead experience though.
