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.

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 .
