Washington fishing report

Southwest Washington – Returning adults are at a fraction of last years run on the Cowlitz and Kalama Rivers. The Lewis River, especially near the hatchery is producing excellent results for backbouncers.

The Wind River is still producing good catches although success is more sporadic recently. Drano Lake boat anglers averaged a fish for every 2 rods last week and bank anglers are taking some fish too.

Spring Chinook are present on the Klickitat and White Salmon Rivers.

Upriver, on the Columbia, pro guide Jeff Knotts (509-366-4052) reports steady action for spring Chinook near the mouth of the Umatilla River. "All the standard salmon gear is working including K-13 and K-15 Kwikfish. The action is good and the weather is beautiful!"
