Fish are moving in but are really tight liped..  
got only one jack and one king around 14lbs. on the out going tide..  
please fish with all regs in mind and NO SNAGING  
floating or free drifting eggs is verry effective. HELP US KEEP THE RIVER OPEN FOR GENERATIONS TO COME..

Been fishing at Thomas for 2 weeks every 4 days or so and haven't seen any personally pulled out. Or even seen slaps myself. Been fishing in the evenings after 6 till dusk. 3 days ago saw some big crawdads but couldn't even get them tonight. :(

Hit the Samish above the Edison Bay Bridge a couple times last month (Sept) with no success. Day time tides were usually high all month, even the low tides were too high. The kings were few, scattered and not biting. I'm sure there are some local guys that hit it daily and did well, but not me.  
I tried again towards the end of the month after reading the post by (Jeff) below about the hot Coho fishery. I was the only one there and for good reason. Again, high tides and didn't see a single fish roll. Place is dead right now.

Fished the low tide bite on Friday afternoon. About 60 fishermen there mostly on east side, one foot of water visibility. Plenty of kings rolling but very few taken, about 1 fish per 10 anglers. They just wern't biting this day. Some are catching an incidental silver here and there, no significant numbers showing yet. Not as many bright kings now, most are showing bronzing as they swim the fresh water, none dark yet.  
Best place to fish? Either find a hole where they're stacking up, or find a trough they're bottlenecking through and keep hitting it until you hook up.  
I'm hearing that east side river access (private property) can be purchased for $20/day or $100/season. Good luck.

Samish River is fishing full force for chrome Kings averaging in the upper teens to low 20's. Best luck is at low tide so check the charts for Padilla Bay/Swinomish Channel area.  
I use 25lb main line and leader, 1/0 hook, dead drift eggs. Bring a stout rod so you can yard'em in quick. This is not a sport fishery, it is a meat fishery. If you've never experienced combat fishing, well this is it. Follow the regs and be kind to your fellow anglers.  
East side river access is by permit only. Bring your best attitude, some of the locals get pretty grumpy cuz they think it's their own private fishery. Remember guys, it's just fishing. Good luck!

ANOTHER AWESOME DAY ON THE SAMISH. I CAN'T BELIEVE PEOPLE QUIT FISHING THIS RIVER AFTER THE NOOKS ARE OVER. THE SIVER FISHERY HERE IS WAY, WAY BIGGER THAN THE NOOKS, SILVERS WITH LICE, CHUMS/W LICE. I SEE 1 PERSON A DAY. YOU GUYS FISHING SILVERS, PUT AWAY THE EGGS AND GO WITH A #3 BLUE FOX RED/W BRASS BLADE, CUT HOOK OFF, PUT ON A RED 1/0 GAMMA, WATER SLIGHTY COLORED OR CLEAR

WILD STEELIES SHOWING IN GOOD NUMBERS ON THE SAMISH. ALOT OF BIG SEARUNS IN THE RIVER ALSO. HAVE TURNED IN TWO LIC. PLATES FOR KEEPING WILD FISH. THE PINK RUBBER WORM OR EGGS HAS BEEN WORKING GREAT. IT'S ABOUT TIME TO FISH THE MOUTH OF THE SKAGIT FOR SPRING CHINOOK. 8-2 IS OPEN FOR BLACKMOUTH AND SPRINGERS. CASCADE HATCHERY IS EXPECTING 3,500 SPRINGERS BACK THIS YEAR.

Samish still producing steelies for me. Mostly wild fish. A chrome 12lbr to the gunny sack monday and released 3 natives 6 to 10lbs. Lots of cutts, a 16 and 19 incher to the sack. Water color was good, but started turning by late afternoon. Nightcrawlers or chum eggs were the ticket.

Been fishing by myself for the last couple weeks at tidewater. Bobber and eggs, and shrimp have been doin the job. Have caught several fish, mostly natives. Searun cutts are getting bigger, 2 18" and a 21", but mostly they run 12" to 15". The hatchery on the Samish doesn't process any steelhead. They only spawn chinook. The steelhead smolts are are from Whatcom creek and the Nooksack hatchery. When your clipping millions of smolts, some are going to get missed. I have noticed net marks on all my bigger fish.

12/20/2004 - Curtis - Samish River, Skagit County, WA
Saw one steelie roll. Fished below highway 99 bridge. Had one good hard hit drifting eggs. Alot more sea-runs than yesterday. Caught 8 between two good holes. Most about 13-15 inches but not much bigger than that. Quite a few fishermen in this part of the river maybe 15 throughout the day. No steelhead saw caught or hooked. Hey "eatsleepgofishing" are most of yours steelhead clipped or not. I think alot of the people at the hatchery are lazy and don't clip most of the fish because you see alot of unclipped fished that look like hatcheries this time of year. Anyway good luck. Curtis

Fished above I-5, took 1 about 10lbs with straight eggs. Water is ideal and perfect color. Also caught 9 searuns, between 11" and 17.5". I saw no other fisherman. It's lookin like the samish is going to have a pretty good run this year.

Fished downstream of I-5 a ways. Hooked one steelie around 8-10lbs. Also caught a nice sea run cutt at 15 inches and two old silvers. Saw two steelies sitting in a small slot but spooked them after about five casts. They were moving out of the way of my eggs. Just got back about 20 minutes ago. Curtis

Steelies are showing up. To date i'm at 7 fish, biggest is 12lbs. Most fish are around 8lbs. Straight eggs have been doing the job. And best of all, no boats, and very light on anglers. Also, lots of searuns. Mostly 12'' to 17''

Fished the samish this morning, took 2 chrome silvers home. Chrome/red little cleo. The silver fishery has been as excellent as last year. Late run nooks should be here any day

For all you Fly Fishers out there. Fished the Samish during the outgoing tide upstream of the Farm to Market bridge seeing lots of silvers and kings nearly swimming by my feet while wading. Landed a 15lb king just turning pink about mid-day on a black size 8 wooly bugger dead drifted off the bottom. Other days have just been filled with watching them swim by. Lots of good ish in the river that I have seen

Fished the Samish last nite by the bridge on Farm-to-Market road. Saw a few kings splashing around making noise. Hooked into one king between 8-10 pounds and after landing it I decided to release it. It was caught using a generic neon-green spoon. Saw two other fisherman who had no luck.

Fished the Samish Monday, low amount of fish taken. Hooked a nice 18 lb hen, released due to the foul hook, then hooked up a nice 24 lb hen right at tide change. It will improve in the next few weeks.

Fished the samish off farm to market road, spent about three hours walking the river. Saw three kings taken (each 20+ lbs)on eggs by others on the river. I fished a corkey and yarn and only had one hit, but didn't land the fish. Seemed like only a few fish were running up the river at a time, maybe it will improve over the next week or two.
