Bill Swann will offer tips on fishing for salmon on the Chehalis River during Wednesday’s meeting of the Olympia Chapter of Trout Unlimited.
The Chehalis is one of the largest tributaries that flow into the Pacific Ocean, and has runs of chinook, coho and chum salmon as well as searun cutthroat trout and steelhead.
During his presentation, “Twitching Jigs for Salmon in the Chehalis River System,” Swann will cover the key points anglers need to know for this fishing technique, including rod set-up, proper line and using the right jig.
Refreshments will be provided, and there will be a fishing-equipment raffle at the end of the presentation.
A native of the Pacific Northwest, Swann uses his 30-plus years of fishing experience as the basis for his program. He has taught anglers to catch more salmon, trout and steelhead in Oregon, Idaho, Washington and Alaska. You can learn more about him at swannysfishing.com.
The meeting, free and open to the public, will be at the North Olympia Fire Station, 5046 Boston Harbor Road NE, starting at 7 p.m.
