RE:Im getting the pinks itch!!! when can i have at em?

I fished the sound in a 14' boat and a 8hp motor all growing up. its completely doable in these waters, but it can get a little dicey some days. For pinks, I would stick to mouths of the rivers however. Get those big schools in skinny water and you can really increase your catch rate. There are a co...

March 1st!!!!

So after picking up river (salmon) fishing a few years back, trout fishing just doesn't hold the same appeal. But the March 1st opener is some of my favorite fishing. 1st camping trip of the year, do some GREAT trout fishing, hang out in the sun. I cant wait, going to OE on Friday to stock up and sp...

Patteros lodging?

Hey WL.com family it has been too long. Its that time of year again when I get "the itch". With work, the holidays, and yucky weather I havnt been on the water in months. December 6th was the last time I wet a line. But a couple days after my last outing, someone decided they needed my river bag a l...

RE:Winter trout fishing in washington state

Taz said it. Well thats how I do it anyway. Shorter leader and slightly bigger bait.

But why would you soak your worms in warm water?

Never have fished those ponds but I heard that the walleye never did too well. And the cats are big, but few and far between

RE:BAFFLED by BOTTOM BOUNCERS

Yes bottom bouncers and bottom walkers are an absolute must for walleye. I like the bottom bouncers when trolling rocky or weedy waters. Over in the potholes when the water is high the walleye will hide in the willows. You can bounce the wire off the tops of the willows and not get snagged. And same...

RE:Sockeye?

If it was a male, its nothing that is "supposed" to be in the Green. But if were a female.... I can almost see a little chum or humpy in there. But male, no way its either of those. I dont know sockeye too well, but have heard rumors of a small run on the Green. So by process of elimination, and bei...

RE:Has anyone smoked boot kings before?

A guys definition of a "boot" salmon can vary greatly. I have heard time and time again the whole "itll smoke up just fine" saying. I have tried it, on 4 of the 5 salmon species and it just isnt true. A nice colored up fish, maybe a pink with a small hump, a chum with the k9s starting to show or a h...

RE:DUWAMISH NETS MOVED !!!!

The rivers have been droping like flies because of the small silver run this year. Lets hope the Green dodges the bullet, but I am afraid the Green/Duwamish will be next.

RE:Westport

Thanks for the tip scott080379. I have never used a cut plug other than for trolling or mooching. If I see more kings, I have a feeling thats gonna change. I like the idea behind a banana weight.

Just wondering if anybody out there has fished for the salmon in the boat basin. I have fished it a few times for salmon but never did any good. Or i...

RE:pinks next year

I know the Puke got a little less than the Green. But when you talking a couple hundred thousand, you are just splitting hairs. I want to say the Green was 1.3 mil. and the Puke was 900k. But maybe that was the original forecast, and not the actual run. I remember the pinks showed up in the Puyallup...

Green has been pretty slow for most. Since last Friday I have fished every day but 1. I have seen maybe 50 fish jump/rise in that time period, probably less. I have seen less than 10 people fishing. The week before that I fished the entire week. There was way more fish and way more fisher people. Be...
