So i went out to the skook yesterday. There was a ton of people there but nobody catching fish. As i went to cross the river i was reading the water amd i saw that a bunch of steel were holding next to the bank. Nobody was targeting them so i casted at them for 45 mins or so and came away with a decent hen about 6-7lbs. Water was low and slow but still dark.

Saw the skookumchuck was dropping back into shape, so I headed down for the afternoon to try and find some steelhead. There are a lot of dark fish in the river ...a few bright ones too...ended up taking home one little 6lb buck pretty chrome, and caught two others both native both released. The bigger buck was an absolute toad...fought like 20 lb plus fish was more like 14 or 15...couldn't have been more than 30in...but boy he was thick...a wiley veteran...jumped flipped tail danced all over then ran downstream under a log ...somehow I got him outta there after about 10min of pressure and then feeding him line , pressure feed line, pressure feed line....netted him for a quick pic and off he went. best steelhead fight to date...or at least best where I ended up landing the fish. good luck go get em.

Contrary to popular belief, there are fish in the river...if you bought a license, you paid for the right to catch 'em ...go get 'em.

"The skookumchuck is as dead as my great grandma and there is absolutely not enough steelhead to go out there. Been out on the river floating beads, jigs and throwing spoons/spinners.. Havnt had any action and have been talking with the locals. Everyone and their brother fishes the chuck that lives around there and nothing is being caught. Heard the run came early and many people missed it.. If you're looking for some winter steel before they are all gone, try the Olympic Panisula although it's such a far drive... anyways guys.. best of luck!!
Tight lines!"

Went out to the Skookumchuck river! Started a little past noon at the fields saw nothing so I moved up close to the dam around 3:30 and fished till it was dark. Only action that I had was one bobber down with a orange and pink konezone spike bead WITH SOME sand shrimp scent and that was all. 1 saw one fish landed and a couple fish hooked by the drifters a little ways down from me. Talked to a guy on the way out who had caught two steelhead that day, one native that he had to release and a one really nice chromer that was in the upper teens. Well hopefully the fish arrive soon.

Fished Borst, Rotary and Schaefer parks on the lower skook. Water looked green brown. Height didn't look too bad, but no hits and no fish seen. Plunkers had zero luck also.

Stopped by the Skook to see what was happening. Not too crowded probably because it was new years. Was a nice day and fished till my eyelets froze up.
Didn't see any steelhead, but I did catch an old beautifully colored coho.
Would have been amazing to catch him bright and shiny! Was nice to get out while it wasn't raining ;)
Met a new friend. As usual, it was nice to chit chat about fishing and share some stories. I have met some really awesome people on the rivers up north and south :)
