River fishing continues to be tough due to the low water and sunny skies. Rain is forecast for this week and we are keeping our fingers crossed that it will be enough to raise the water levels. Click here to view the weather forecast.
Taiwah Creek and the Lost River are producing fish on the incoming tides, but not a super hot bite. The ocean fishing is still producing good numbers of halibut and some silver salmon also. Ling Cod and rockfish are also still being caught in decent numbers.
The weather is absolutely beautiful, but that is creating a low clear water scenario that is making the river fishing a little more difficult than usual. Large numbers of fish are arriving on every tide and the fishing seems to be best on those fresh fish entering the system before they are trapped in the low water upriver. With no significant rain in the immediate forecast, the fishing will continue to more difficult, but working for the fish sometimes is more rewarding for the fisherman.
Ocean fishing has been great. Large halibut and good numbers of Silver Salmon are still being caught on a daily basis, along with rockfish and Lingcod. Flat-water conditions have made the ocean the place to be the last couple weeks and look to continue for the rest of the month.
