CHEHALIS: For coho, people are twitching jigs, drifting eggs, or casting size 5 Vibrax spinners in a rainbow trout pattern or a silver blade and a pink body.
GREEN: People are catching a few chum salmon despite the high water. A week ago, the river flow measured in Auburn was just over 600 cubic feet per second. By Friday morning, the flow was at 1,640 cfs.
KENNEDY: The first chum salmon are starting to show up at the mouth of the creek.
OLYMPIC COAST: The fishing should be fair to good this weekend, if there is not too much rain. Flows have come down since peaking Wednesday night. The Hoh was at 4,860 cfs Friay morning after topping out at 16,500 late Wednesday night.
SKOKOMISH: Most anglers are using chartreuse or cerise corkies and yarn for chum salmon.
YAKIMA: The fly fishing for trout has been good. Smaller nymphs seem to be working best right now. The river level rose some Thursday, but should hold steady for the weekend.
HARTS: The crappie fishing remains very good, and the perch action is good. The lake is due to be stocked with 300-350 rainbow trout by the end of the month.
ISLAND: Trying trolling close to the bottom with a 2- to 2.5-inch sinking perch-colored Rapala to hook large trout.
POTHOLES: Anglers making the trip are still catching limits of walleye along the sand dunes, as well as some large crappie at the mouth of Crab Creek. The canal has been closed for the season, so the lake level has started rising.
RATTLESNAKE: The trout fishing has been very good since the lake was stocked. The state has increased the limit to 10 trout a day with no size restrictions through Feb. 1. Selective gear rules are still in effect. The lake will switch to catch and release on Feb. 2.
SHADOW: This Renton lake was recently planted, and the action has been good to very good. Bait anglers are using green or chartreuse Power Bait, while fly anglers are using small olive nymph patterns.
SILVER: The bass anglers are still catching fish, but the action overall has been on the slow side because of the weather. This and other lowland lakes will close for the season on Friday.
BEACHES: The current razor clam dig day and evening low tides times are: Saturday (Oct. 25), 8:22 p.m., -0.6 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, Copalis; Sunday, 9:03 p.m., -0.6 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks; Monday, 9:47 p.m., -0.4 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors; and Tuesday, 10:36 p.m., -0.2 feet, Long Beach, Twin Harbors. The next dig, if marine toxin tests show clams are safe to eat, will open Nov. 4.
NORTH SOUND: The best coho salmon fishing, and catching, remains in the Port Angeles area. Creel samples show people are averaging about one coho per angler.
SOUTH SOUND: The salmon fishing has been slow around Olympia and Tacoma. People jigging for squid from local docks are seeing more success each week.
WESTPORT: If you want to include some salmon fishing with a clam dig, cast some bright-colored lures among the rocks in the marina to hook a coho. The fishing in the basin is still fair to good.
