While winter steelhead are the main attraction right now, late-stock coho will continue to bite through December. As of mid-November, boat anglers were averaging one hatchery coho per day on the Cowlitz River, where returns to Cowlitz Salmon Hatchery through Nov. 17 have been on a record pace with 88,306 adults. The Klickitat River has also been producing strong coho catches.

 

  • Cowlitz River – Under permanent rules, Nov. 30 is the last day of the night closure and anti-snagging rule from Mill Creek to the barrier dam.

The river level is up on the Cowlitz river approaching 10,000 cfs.

Its time to take the big sticks out of the closet and start throwing some bigger flies like Intruders, Pick Yer Pockets and a variety of string leeches.

The Rio intermediate skagit heads are extremely good in these conditions slowing down the presentations of the flies in the high water conditions. Get ready to rock and roll my friends the winter steelies are almost here. These fish are big and robust providing heart stopping takes and runs on even the big spey rods.
