Fishing Reports - October 7, 2018


 

The king salmon have definitely taken center stage over the past week or so. The fish are running very large this year and are plentiful! Nymphing is always the most productive method for these giants. The king fishing should stay hot for another couple of weeks yet and then it will be the winter run steelhead that will occupy our time.

The steelhead fishing has been slow so far. As the kings start to concentrate so will the steelhead. Look for the cooler rain that we just had to bring in even more steelhead. Get those spey rods ready because the best swinging of the year is just a short time out now.

If you are in to big pike, this is the time of the year to get on the river. We are having some nice days on the smaller rivers and the big girls are starting to show up! Make sure not to forget the poppers becuase they have been eating them well the past couple of weeks.
