The Fishing was very slow. Water was as clears as can be and on the bank, we were fishing only 2 fish were hooked up all day. The bite was tuff. 1 fish was landed. Every one on the bank was plunking with small spin an glows with either roe or sand shrimp on the hooks. Lots of salmon smolt were in the river were there but most were being eaten by river otters, small fish etc. The conditions were amazing out there and definitely a place I will be going to again.

What started out as a late start with low expectations quickly turned around once we got to the water. The temps had finally dropped and it seemed to get the fish biting. Third drift through the deep pool and bam, fish on! It started leaping and went totally crazy which made me think wild fish but when it got to the bank it was a bright hatchery buck. I took a friend who never caught a steelhead and first cast for him was fish on, and it was a beauty! Another chrome hatchery, this time a hen. After about an hour of no action we moved downstream to the next pool and once again, first cast, bam fish on! It was the nicest of the day, about 14lbs buck, very fresh and very lively. So in all we landed 3 and lost 2 while seeing only one drift boat go by in about a 3 hour span. Good luck out there, tight lines everyone.

Decided to take a stroll up the nooch once the temps dropped back off. Found fish holding in deeper pools with faster water. Went 2 for 3 in about 4 hours with one hatchery and one wild. Some really nice looking water, just have to find the fish!

Started fishing on the Wynoochee River at Sunrise. We were using eggs with a double hook set up. We fished the upper river section and were on fish right away but lost a few. Then 10 am rolled along and the weather changed for the worse! Wind 10-20 and heavy rain which instantly lowered the temp by 10-15 degrees and made the fish basically shut down. A few bites but slow. at 2pm the sun popped out and fish were hitting again. We had a good day even though weather wasn't working! Day before was sunny and warm and we filled the boat with full limit of 6 fish. Just goes to show what weather can do to fishing.

Fished Sunday morning with a buddy at crossover and at white bridge. Didn't see any thing. The few people that were there had the same results as us. Water was low as expected, but plenty of spots for fish to huge still. Was chilly in the morning, take an extra shirt too start out. Fished from about about 6 to 11

Ok ok... So I didnt really fish the wynoochee. I fished up and down the coast on many different river systems this winter/spring...This report is a season summary and thank you to everyone who fished with me!

Although not quite over yet... I figured it was a good time to throw a couple of the most memorable photos up and say thanks to all the awesome clients from Washington lakes/Northwest Fishing Reports ive had this Winter.

This has certainly been my most memorable guiding season yet. With the low water/lack of rain we had for a large portion of this winter season...we were able to find solitude on many river systems... And mixed with unseasonably sunny, warm and comfortable days and crazy good steelhead fishing... I will not soon forget a single day I was able to spend on the water with you guys. The fishing was incredible and it was awesome to see our wild fish return so strong!

There were many first steelhead, biggest steelhead and best days on my boat this winter, and the smiles lasting all day long are what keep me working my hardest for you guys day in and day out. I am truely thankful to all that decided to fish with me, and I hope to see you all again in the near future.

April 20 is my cut-off date for winter steelhead. I do not have any days left open this season. May is a bit of a slow month. Then June 1, I will likely run a week or so of Spring Chinook trips on the Skagit. I leave to guide in Alaska on June 15 and will be back to hopefully see you all again starting in September for fall coho season.

I cannot thank you guys enough... Enjoy some of the most memorable and awesome photos from this winter! See you soon!

Just a quick report for the last couple of weeks, the most recent being on Tuesday. The river is very low and clear, but the weather has been great and the scenery on the Wynoochee is pretty great as well.

Been getting a fish here and there, but all have been nates so no pics (I fish alone usually and don't seem to have the dexterity to work a rod, net, and phone at the same time. If I see a fin, I just wade out and pull the hook out without having to pull the fish out of the water or onto the rocks).

Tuesday was the best day, went 3/3, all 6-7lb nates, 2 bucks and 1 hen. They were still pretty big so hadn't spawned yet, but were getting a little rosy this time of year.

Hope to get a few more days in before the river closes. Then will probably hit the Skook a time or two before calling it a season on steelhead (I've yet to pull a fish out of the skook...don't know why, just dont seem to have the mojo on that river...).

So my brother got me a cool sweatshirt to help advertise his bbq and smoked meats business in Napa CA and I promised him I would wear it one day in honor of him and post some pictures of me holding fish and wearing the shirt.

Being the good brother I am, saw an opportunity today to fulfill my promise and arranged a float trip on the Wynoochee again. Now the reports have been dismal of late but I was not concerned because I had confidence in who I was going with that we would have success and boy I was not disappointed!!!

Brother in faith Ron Brown and I started our journey over to the river around 4am and were happy to see some cloud cover as knew this would bode well with the low water we were anticipating encountering on today's float. Arrived at the 'fish house' and one other guide was just setting out to try his luck ( skills!)

We were informed we would be fishing out of a raft today instead of a drift boat so I was excited to try a new way of fishing for me! We dropped the boat into the river at the 7400 road and started our drift down river. Today we were not going to plug as the water was too low and with a raft, was going to be a long 16 mile drift but instead tossed a set up which included a 2 bead set up below and drift float.

The other rod was fished with a jig with cured shrimp. As we hit about our fourth hole I had a nice bobber down and it was fish on!!! This baby made some impressive runs and had some shoulders to it but as we got it near to the boat, saw an extra fin so it was carefully unhooked and released without a net- Not long after Ron got a take down but this one didn't have too much fight and was a bit beat up so again, was released with out a net so now we were 2 for 2 with no fish in the boat yet.

After working out way through some more fishy water Ron had another bobber down and it was a keeper!! He fought it valiantly and soon was flopping in the raft and about the receive it's final love tap and we bonked it and now 3 for 3 with 1 in the boat! I was wondering if I should switch but what happened over the next 2 hours changed my mind!

As we were going through a drift my bobber disappeared and once again was fish on! Now this guy somehow got into something in the middle of the river and thought I was going to lose it as the fish was making runs but my line was hung up on something in the middle of the hole. The only thing we can figure it was was a bunch of line because the fish would run but when I got it back to a certain point would just stop- after making a few circles it finally came free and we were able to get over to the bank and net it! Nice hatchery fish but was not easy!

What happened over the next 2 hours was about a fish every half hour and none easy and we had one run under the boat, another one had to jump out of the boat and chase down river and finally had our limit by 1 PM! Another stellar day going 8 for 8 with 6 in the well and now an 8 mile drift back down to the take out.

Saw bald eagles, a falcon and just a beautiful way to spend the afternoon working our way down river! I was glad to have made my brother proud and let him know he was well advertised on the Wynoochee river today but of course, now he owes me a slab of his mouth-watering finger-licking baby back ribs on my next visit to Napa!!

See you on the water!

I decided to go rub elbows with the drift boat guys. I got a late start at the crossover bridge. A sled came down and hooked one right in front of me, but broke it off so I knew there was a few fish in the river. I fished up as far as I could wade, then down around the corner. I didn't have any more action there, so I went up to the white bridge. I was starting to lose hope, then my bobber went down hard and I felt some head shaking. I landed the skinniest steelhead I have ever seen. I refer to them as "down river" fish since it didn't have any eggs in her. I thought that the state usually punch the gill plate after they spawn them though. That was the only bite of the day. I fished back down at the crossover bridge right as it got dark. It seemed that the boats were averaging about a fish a piece.


Im not very familiar with this river, I think the spots I named are correct. Also, it seems that either guys are throwing eggs, sand shrimp, or fly fishing. And of course backing plugs. If I wasn't so lazy, I would probably through bait also. I caught my fish on an all pink jig.
