Fishin'Daze wrote:Hey everyone,
I feel kinda foolish posting for other fisherman to fish with but here it goes. Lived here most of my life (Olympia) and have fished for almost anything that Wa has to offer. I prefer fresh water but at times fish salt. I really like river fishing (Salmon and Steelhead) and fishing local lakes (boat) for trout and pretty anything that decides to hit my lure. I'm usually a catch and release type of guy (occasional Salmon or Steelhead retained), but don't mind if friends keep what they catch (legally). I have a 16' Smokercraft Pro with a 40 Yamaha (alittle underpowered, great gas milage, fresh only) and a co-pilot electric trolling motor.
Anyway all of my past fishing buddies have moved outta state so have been fishing mostly by myself for many years. Although my wife enjoys fishing lakes with me not to crazy about rivers. She always tells me to get some fishing friends and I keep looking in the stores but none to be had.
Sooooo... if your wanting to fish with someone like me and don't mind wading/exploring rivers and the local lakes think about responding. I know it sounds weird.
I usually fish the Nisqually and Skookumchuck rivers. The skook is still ok to fish but seems to getting more crowded with less fish. The Nisqually (Salmon) was really good until the last few years - crowded, less fish and shorter season outside of the main run. Used to fish the green but haven't for a few years. Used to fish the Skokomish but can't because of no more Salmon season but also was getting tired of the snaggers (line whippers) on this river.
Two rivers that I would like to start fishing is the Cowlitz and the Kalama. Have fished the Cowlitz a few times in the past but not enough to know where to get away from combat fishing. I'm always open to learn new rivers but would prefer to stay south or west. Usually target Salmon and Steelhead.
Because of the shorter seasons, less fish and increase in combat fishing I've been spending more time in lakes (boat) targeting trout and bass - although I'm open to any fresh water lake fishing. One day hope to make it to Roosevelt for the great Koke fishery. With all the lake fishing I've been doing my river trips are dwindling down to a few trips each year. So would like to get back to river fishing. Hope this sheds some light. Usually have an open spot in my boat (unless wife goes) if interested.
