Hit the Skokomish river fishing bobber and jigs tipped with a piece of shrimp. the action was non stop for these terrific fighters. My first time trying this meathead and was amassed how readily the bit this offering. By one my arms were sore from battling these brutes and called it a day , all fish were released excepted one silver that came home for the barbecue.

My niece and I hit the Skokomish River hoping to bag some Coho. To be fair there are Coho in the river but there are very few compared to the Kings and Pinks. We found a hole up by Purdy Creek where we spent the day doing battle with King after King and loving every minute of it. Kings can no longer be retained but that certainly didn’t stop them from trying to go home with us. To a fish they were all some degree of Dark but not bad. I believe the run finally came in after they closed the River on the 1st of September. Typically, by this time of year the only Kings to be had are Boots and the bottom is littered with their carcasses. The only Coho we saw were a few bright flashes and the tails of some that had holed up under a snag.

The river was high and muddy today after all the rain over the weekend. We spent two hours working our section of the stream before going home with empty hands. Other than one strike there was zero action. There were some other anglers nearby who appeared to be snag fishing, so we stayed away from them.

Hit up the Skok opener around 4:40am and fished several holes above the guard rail and saw only 2 beautiful cutthroat caught. My buddy and I decided to go try out Hoodsport for pinks at incoming tide and saw several caught and I lost one. Left after weather and waves picked up. Checked out the skok again at the street hole where all the snaggers are trying to "catch" fish with an 8 foot leader under a bobber.... Good grief what pieces of Sh@!. Spent a half hour throwing nice clumps of eggs at a good school of fish with no takers or interest in the eggs. Looks like it will be slow again. Stay safe and tight lines!

hit the skok for the first time. quite the adventure. late night decision. early morning driving. not a clue where to go or if the other guys from the FB page i was chatting with would show. took a suggestion to head down purdy cutoff and then parked at the first sign of fishermen, which happened to be at the turn by the start of purdy creek.

watched some locals try to muscle some fish while i patiently waited for my turn. boy was it a good turn. nice 14.5b chunk of muscle took my 12lb line and had some fun. tried to tie me off on a stump even. managed to work my way down the rocks, way too small net in hand and get to the water. arm getting tired at this point but still workin the fish in. netted it like a pro and up the rocks i scamper. sorry locals, seattle landed the first fish. :-)

spent the rest of the day scampering for leader since i ran out and yarn since i forgot my entire bag of it. tried my luck at floating some eggs to no avail. got to experience young guys being professional grade flossers. only managed to bring home one fish but given how my year has gone one is a lot. overall a good experience because it was a new river and my first nice big chum of the year. now i can smoke something and my mom and be happy.

Fished the skok for the first time yesterday with some friends. Don't know the river well, we ended up fishing off of a wood pile down and on the opposite side of the river from a combat floss line. We could see fish in the hole beneath us and we threw everything at them, concentrating on eggs. We had a couple missed bobber downs and one great hook up and fight until it swam into the wood pile beneath us, wrapped up and broke off. Was a beautiful fish of course! Probably 15lbs and still bright. We saw lots of bright fish flashing in the hole. Saw a bunch of dark fish as well. Would rate it higher but we didn't take home any fish. Not bad action for our first time on the skok fishing store bought eggs though. Hope to be back next year with better bait and luck!

dead, not one fish seen, saw the natives net all along Purdy creek cut off and into it, which I had never seen before, 3 nets across at 4 pm, which I thought all nets were supposed to be out. Anyway, no fish whatsoever

Hello WALAKES!

I fished the skok today. Not many fishermen about... probably the word got out that there aren't many fish in the river. What happened I wonder? Got to check how many the hatchery has.

I saw a couple fish taken from the guard rail hole. Big logjam area at hunter's farm was dead. A cool dude got into the water and recovered about 25 cannonballs from snags in the river. Good idea!

I think the netting of the mouth has definitely affected fishing for the worse on the skok. I've heard of some good days, but so far I've seen a whole mess of nothin.

Fished the Skok for the first time Friday. What a site....I would say I was there fishing with a lot of other fisherman but that's not the case. I may have seen ten of the 200 people fishing, the rest were just ripping hooks through holes and snagging fish, bringing them onto the bank, yelling up to their buddy that they hooked it in the mouth and then filling out their catch card. Must be something about the fish in the Skok, they come onto the bank tail first when they are hooked in the mouth, some sort of reverse swimming technique unique to theses salmon...weird i know... I had brought my fly rod hoping to find some peace and get one of these fish to bite away from the pressure, (which i did, my buddy and I brought 4 legal biting fish home) and i saw another fly fisherman...it was a relief to see someone fishing not snagging so i walked over to talk to him and asked him what fly he was using...and he had a bare 6/0 red hook and said they really like this..ok....even after talking to the local guys down there it was obvious that with the lack of pressure from any fish and game regulation (not one seen at the river even after reporting four tail hooked fish kept and one native adipose CLIPPED off to keep!!!) ..this is how you catch fish here..snag your two and get out of there.Really a disappointment to see. Aside from that, i hiked about two miles in, with no snaggers anywhere, and found a handfull of legit bobber fishing anglers, all close to their limits, we got our limit and got out.
