Hit three spots on the Green. Lots of fishermen out. only saw a few caught all day. even my favorite spot produced nothing for me or the others, even with a tasty ship on the jig.

walked to a new spot and noticed a teenage with his dad snagging fish and then two guys across the river doing the same thing. heavy weight, 6 foot leader and a plain jighead, cast across the river and rip it back. then behind me in a small gravelly side channel no deeper than a foot and full of chum pairs in their redds some "fisherman" walked in and starts snagging them out of their redds. I left, eventually returned and then there were about 8 teenagers snagging the chum out of their redds. WFT? what is wrong with these people? I left.

Went 2 for 4 this morning from 730 to 9. 6lb male, 10 lb female. Pink jig head, purple feathers under a bobber with some cured shrimp seemed to do it as I was getting hits while everyone else didn't land any. Kept the big female for eggs and some kitchen experiments on making chum try to taste good. Not optimistic lol. Gave away the male to another fisherman. Good luck out there everyone.

I was curious to see if any chums have made their way upstream yet, so I tried up a drift setup and headed to the Auburn area. Water was pretty clear, but moving at a good clip tonight.

I fished for about the last hour of daylight, and didn't get a single nibble. Only saw two fish jump far off in the distance, and couldn't tell if they were coho, or chums. The only in-water fish sighting was a zombie coho with rotten fins headed in the general direction of Elliott Bay.

Had a few hours on Tuesday and decided to try for some Chum again at some spots I saw them rolling and holding at the last time I was out. The river was fairly high but I'm still learning. The currents were very strong all the way up to the shallows of the bank almost and although I'm still learning what the river looks like in different conditions in this area but from my intel and talking to a few anglers out there the river was definitely flowing pretty hard. It was sort of tough to find any good spots that had slow runs for a bobber and a jig. I saw a couple of trout jump near some structures as I explored further up river for some decent float runs.

I'm using a "jack of all trades" type of rod right now - a cheap 8'6" ugly stik that's doubling as my drifting rod and a cheap float rod that does OK but could be better. Although the floating is a bit more difficult to keep that line organized and to have any kind of decent sensitivity it's doable. I tried to fish closer to the banks at the first deeper point nearest the bank wherever I could find seams, eddies, and structures.

I threw 4 or 5 of my very terrible homemade jigs and tipped a few runs with some prawn. Nothing. I talked to several other anglers as I stumbled around the banks looking for clearings, and casting areas that seemed like it could hold fish and they also weren't seeing too much. I will be out of town watching the Huskies play Cal this weekend so I'm bummed I'll be missing some fishing time, but I hope by next week when I return the Chum will still be around to be caught. Good luck everyone and hope you guys bring in some fish!

Had some time on Sunday morning to spend on the river and decided to get more acquainted with a few spots I ended up scouting out last time at the river. Although I found out talking with several other anglers Sunday these are pretty well known. That morning me and a buddy hit the river trail at around 8am and there were 6 or 7 other anglers along the bank in various spots already getting after it. Almost everyone was float fishing in this section of river.

My buddy and I ended up walking down river quite a ways and checked out some holes and threw some lines in testing the waters so to speak. We stopped up by the golf course and we didn't see much activity early in the morning in these spots. As we worked back up river we ended up seeing some rollers - some greenish and some dark.

I started and spent the majority of the day using a 1oz clear float with about 12" of leader on a home tied marabou jig. I tipped some of the float drift marabou jigs I had with some store bought sand shrimp, but to no avail. I ended up spilling half my sand shrimp into the river too. Doh! I spent a good 3-4 hours working several holes to no avail. I found one spot that had a great downed tree structure creating a nice slow spot. After the first few drifts I thought this was a great spot to mark on the map until after that I might have lost 3 or 4 jigs on branches or something that was hanging away from the structure underwater. I figured when the water is lower and more visible I could probably swing this spot but not this time.

As my buddy left - due to inactivity on the river to watch the Seahawks game - I ended up working my way back up to the car. I stopped by a hole that was at the very start but skipped due to other anglers fishing it. I later found out this spot would be a soon-to-be combat fishing spot for these chums when they get thick in the rivers. After about an hour of drifting the last 2 jigs I had on me I saw a few rolling on the surface and opted to switch to a #3 BF spinner. Chartreuse/purple/pink UV style. I used a 12" fluoro leader and tied it off to my braid and let her swing down river free drifting and slowly retrieving.

After 30 minutes of nothing, I made yet another cast and I noticed something surge up in an instant, a dark figure swiping at my metal offering toward the back end of the drift, but it missed! Spilling out of the water into the air and back down in the drink, I noticed the fish missed my lure. Damn. So close. I swung my spinner out another 30 minutes while another float fisherman joined me. Within 20 minutes he had caught the one I probably missed on my spinner, 15 feet away from the bank. It was cool to see him land it and he was very excited as he just tied his pattern jig the night before. After taking a quick picture he quickly released it into the river as he was all about the C&R.

Anyways - after a good 6 or 7 hours out on the river, empty handed and some gear lost, I figured I'd pack it up and head home as some rain started heading in. Although empty handed, I think I came out of this trip with some great knowledge, practice on float fishing (I've only done this a handful of times), and met a few good people out on the river - I consider it a great day. I hope to make it out again before I get out of town this weekend. Good luck guys and stay safe.

Got out Sunday morning before the game and before the rains came.
i chose to start at hwy.18 and work my way downstream. but i found out it was a bit fast so i drove down river a bit.
found slower water and twitched jigs for 1 hour rotating between colors.

hooked a zombie coho that chased by jig all the way to my feet. gave a good headshakes before i unhooked him off.
after that i walked down to a spot where 1 guy left.
2nd cast and at the top of the 4th twich my drag starts screaming!
i thought i snagged a fish. 15 minutes later on 12lb test it was revealed that i didnt foul hook the fish.

turned out to be a chum about 11lbs, rahter dark already. as i was trying to take off the hook and take a picture, the chum popped off the hook...darn....

what a rush of adrenaline though when my drag peeled off

Took off Sunday morning in order to explore the upper sections of the river. I decided to try to explore and check out some areas that I've spotted out during my map reconnaissance. I started below 405 and worked my down to several areas I've never been to before. Early on there was very little activity by other people around these spots and I had a few areas to myself to scout out. Some of these places stunk and were terrible so I scratched them off my potential spot list.

I finally got down to the Auburn area and threw some lines in growing tired of just wandering lugging pole around. After the 3rd or 4th cast I noticed something moving a few feet away. A zombie salmon decided to hang out next to me in some gravel by the beach. It was ugly, spawned out, and had no idea what the heck was going on. He decided to swim in this spot for the next 15-20 minutes I fished here. I ended up trying a DK 50/50 and drifted for a while. Seeing no other rollers, or no other activity, I opted to move further up river.

Stopping near the golf course, I found some OK water but not the best - faster moving water - but running short on time I decided it would have to do. I had a nice clearing to cast from and battling blackberry bushes, thorns, and crazy brush making a tangle of my lines and gear as I scouted I was ready to have some open space to fish at. I started drifting DK 50/50's and had nothing. I moved on and finished the day drifting sandshrimp and eggs (both store bought). Although the river was moving fairly fast from all I could tell I was able to dial in the pencil lead and had a great few drifts. The only issue was there was no fish! Several guys were across the river fishing as I arrived and several more tried as I kept going. I didn't see anything or anyone land much of anything.

I hope to get out next weekend and do some more scouting in preparation for Chum - if they have not already shown up. I'd really like to catch a fish on the system and get some eggs I can cure myself. One can hope and wish but this is the name of the game. Good luck to everyone else out there!

Caught my first ever yarn and corkie coho this morning. 6lb hen. Fish were coming through in waves, and lots of jumpers. Caught a little cutthroat also, released... Many exciting head shaking bites for about 45 minutes, but could only land the one. Near hwy 18.

I swear the coho looked dime bright before its black garbage sack ride home (5min drive). Was kinda disappointed by appearance when I got home.

...but upon return to my truck (was only fishing an hour) my door had been jimmied open, and the contents of my truck scattered in the parking lot. No damage to my truck, and less than 200 dollars worth of stolen stuff.

The two trucks next to mine though, had there windows busted out.

My buddy had similar happenings last week at the nearby park and ride.

(i thing these guys are the local young tweaker kids i see out from time to time in the evening, might be living in the woods here.)

Tried again today during lunch for a half our. Freedrifted eggs the whole time. Got a 3lb silver in the first five minutes then nothing after that. It looks to be done on the lower river until the Chum arrive next month.

Stopped by for a half hour during lunch. Water was going out, but it was still high. Started out drifting eggs but switched over to freedrifting to get a better drift. Had a few nibbles that I'm sure were from sculpin. Got a good bite right before I was gonna head out. Landed a small 3lb silver. Made a few more casts but didn't get any more bites.
