Carbon: Orange corkies and yarn have been producing bites from some chinook; action has been fair overall.
Green: Trolling Wiggle Warts or Dick Nite spoons has been producing plenty of hits from coho on the lower river.
Nisqually: Eggs fished under a bobber seem to be the most effective method for catching salmon. The action has been off and on in recent days.
Puyallup: The fishing seems to have slowed in recent days, although there are still plenty of people on the river. Anglers are reminded that the river downstream of the City of Puyallup outfall structure will be closed Sunday-Tuesday.
Yakima: The Yakima has been fishing well, with the trout willing to hit dry flies. Hoppers and caddis patterns are the best dry-fly options right now. Go with stoneflies if you want to nymph. River levels are dropping to typical fall low levels.
Clear (Pierce): The lake is still producing limits of kokanee. Look for the fish holding about halfway to the bottom in water 60-90 feet deep. People are trolling pink artificial squid behind a dodger.
Mineral: A 7-pound, 8-ounce rainbow was landed Sunday by an angler using rainbow Power Eggs. People are catching limits from boats; the dock action has been a little slow.
Washington: Anglers are catching smallmouth bass on dark-colored grubs and white spinnerbaits.
North Sound: The fishing has been good for coho; the trick has been finding the fish. Be willing to move often until you can locate the schools. Browns Bay off Edmonds has been a productive spot.
South Sound: The coho action has been good in the Redondo area, with anglers trolling pink/white hoochies behind a blue flasher. In Tacoma, the clay banks to the slag pile have been producing coho on the outgoing tide. People are hooking some salmon on the Nisqually Reach.
Westport: Boats have been heading straight out from Grays Harbor, with a few boats heading north toward Pacific Beach. Most people are catching coho, with a few chinook.Contributing to this report were Gamefishin.com, state Department of Fish and Wildlife, Washingtonlakes.com, Red’s Fly Shop, Mike Chamberlain at Ted’s Sports Center, Art Tachell at Point Defiance Boathouse, Westport Charter Association, Becky Pogue at Offut Lake Resort, Doreen Douglas at Mineral Lake Resort. firstname.lastname@example.org 253-597-8640 blog.thenewstribune.com/adventure
