Lewis River (North Fork) Reports

The lower river has traditionally provided fishing opportunities for coho and chinook salmon, steelhead, and sea-run cutthroat trout, with lots of bank and boat access. Popular and productive spots near the salmon hatchery and Cedar Creek Hole can be extremely crowded. Hatchery sea-run cutthroat are no longer released into the North Fork. To protect wild steelhead "jacks," the trout minimum size limit is 20 inches. The salmon daily bag limit is currently six hatchery chinook, no more than two adults. The projected spring salmon run size this year (3,100 fish) will probably necessitate some restrictions beginning in May. All chinook with an intact adipose fin must be immediately released unharmed from January 1 through July 31. All chum salmon, wild steelhead, wild cutthroat, and wild coho must be released. The current outlook for fall chinook is slightly lower than last year, but coho numbers are likely to be improved. Check the department web site at www.wa.gov/wdfw or with the regional WDFW office in Vancouver at (360) 696-6211 for the latest information on seasons and catch limits. For real-time river flow information at Merwin Dam, call (800) 547-1501 or visit the NOAA web site at http://www.nwrfc.noaa.gov/data/streamflow/nwrfc/lewis.html. Boat launching sites on the North Fork include the Island boat launch and Cedar Creek boat launch (across the river from the Lewis River Hatchery), both managed by WDFW, the Haapa launch, and the Merwin launch operated by Pacificorp. For boat launch directions and information on the internet, go to http://boat.iac.wa.gov. Disabled accessibility at Haapa site - Level 1. Fully-accessible bank fishing and access at launching ramp.

Since most the local rivers were blown out I took a long drive to the N. Fork of the Lewis River to see what it was like. I have never been there. I checked the gauge before I left home and they let water out of the dam at midnight. I got into the water about 6am and left 8:30am. I glow-balled in the dark and at daylight switched to bobber and jig. I didn’t see any fish or anyone with fish. I thought the color of the river was beautiful but I couldn’t tell what the visibility was since I was in it.

Fished the hatchery this morning; I saw 10 to 12 anglers with 4 steelhead. I saw one boat landed Steelhead. I had quite a few bites but was not able to hook anything. Fishing with roe.

The Lewis river late run silvers are not showing in any good numbers yet. But with the big rainstorm we are gonna get, the end of next week should be a hot fishery!
