Skookumuchuck river

Postby DriftingTheNorthwest » Sun Feb 19, 2017 5:29 pm

I am heading out to the Skook most likely this weekend on Saturday and the flow is looking to be a little over 1000 and I was not sure of that being too high for fishing this river since it is such a small river. Thanks in advance

It should be fishable, but the recent storm runoff really dirtied up the water last couple weeks and the fishing hasnt been too good from what I am hearing. Good luck!

Big mudslide upstream this year it's a goner I'm afraid to say. 6" of vis but if you get lucky and fish hard you might find one that will play. It's been a real bummer considering there is no lack of opportunity

I was there yesterday (Thursday) and picked up a bag full of garbage didn't see any needles though but wasn't looking for them. The river's visibility is ok 2 ft or so but alot of water coming down. Most of the areas I normally fish were under water and flows were faster than normal. Did see 1 fish caught - 5 or so lbs - but I didn't get any takers. Still a great day outdoors. Please pick up your garbage and cigarette butts. I guess it's time to get the boat out.
