8/23/2013 - Matthew - Skagit River, Skagit County, WA
Went out Friday afternoon from about 1-3pm looking for Pinks on the Skagit. I found a spot around the bend up river from the railroad bridge off Whitmarsh kinda behind that dirt track place (still don't know what it's used for) and drifted a pink glitter Dick Nite spoon size #1 about 20-25 feet off the bank and landed a nice humpy about 2:30. It didn't give me a lot of play, but it was plenty fun. About 22" and 3 1/2 lbs after its insides were outside. Grilled half with a basil cream sauce and smoke the other half. I can't eat them due to allergy issues, but my wife said it was the best salmon she's ever had. It's certainly the freshest. From River to grill in less than 4 hours.

Decided to hit the Skagit with the pops after yesterday's failure. And boy did it change! When I arrived @ 5:10 I found that my favorite spot was taken, grrrr! So took a place next to them. As soon I could see the bats flying I started casting. At about 5:45 just as all the other spots were getting taken my dad hooks into a nice 4 pound hen, lands it, iki jimes it, and puts it on ice ASAP. After about 200 casts (8:45) I hook into a big, slightly humped, 5.5 pound buck. My first humpy of the season, and what a humpy it was! Screaming runs, acrobatics, and deep dives. I had to duck under 6 peoples lines to land the humpy, lol, what a fighter. I preformed iki jime, and put it on ice ASAP. Just as I'm done filling out my catch card my dad hooks into what seems to be a small trout. After getting it close to shore we realize its an undersize Dolly Varden. Back into the river it goes. About and hour later my day hooks into a humpy and fights it for 10 seconds then loses it. At 10:30 I hook into a jumpin' humpy @ 5 pounds even. Then a kid I met yesterday shows up and nails a nice hen with a pink marabou jig, 1/4 oz. Or did he show up before I caught the second humpy? Don't recall correctly. Anyways I was fishing at a bar near the railroad bridge that crosses the Skagit near a costco. Could someone give me a name? PS, all of my fish, and my pops fish, were caught on 3/8 oz Humpy Special Spoons, aka the biggest size.  
Tight lines to all, except snaggers and cheaters, hehe.

Flyfished the Swift Creek bar for about four hours before dark on Turkey Day. Water level and clarity were very good. Surprised that I didn't see a single chum rolling or swimming about. I was looking to catch and release anything, chum, dollies, a steelhead. When I arrived, I talked with a guy that had been flyfishing there since morning. He said he caught and released about ten dollies over the day. I managed to C&R just one nice dolly over four hours. I was throwing a 7 wgt rod/sinking line & Cop Car pattern.  
While I still enjoyed being out, I wondered what has happened to this once great fishery? It used to be a sure thing for so many years, what's happened?

Floated the Skagit today and banked it and the Cascade yesterday with no luck. Drifted pink worms, rags, and eggs, casted spoons and spinners, and floated eggs and jigs under bobbers. Floated from Sutter Creek to Rockport on the Skagit and fished the above the Hatchery and the mouth of the Cascade. A few others in drift boats and jetsled besides us. Conditions were perfect with a little color and perfect height. Cascade's "Rasberry" hole has changed a lot. Rivers close on Feb. 16. Good Luck!

Flyfished the powerline bar below Marblemount last Friday the 4th.  
River was flowing a bit high with 1.5 - 2 foot vis.  
8wt rod, Teeny T-200 line, 4 foot leader,  
Fly: Dickson Cop Car, (Pink egg sucking chenille, white maribou palmered on a steelead flyhook size #2)  
Didn't go searching for Steelhead, I've never had luck for them at this location. I was shooting for Dolly Vardin. Caught and released 7, lost another 4. Largest was about 3lbs. DV's have saved many a bad day of steelheading, they're worth effort.

Fished below the Big Bend and Olsen creek. Saw tons of chums, a few spawning silvers, and a couple steelhead jumping. Pretty cool watching and hearing the chums belly flop back into the river. Used bobber & eggs and hooked another big Dolly around 18in. Some crowds on Cascade but only a drift boater on the Skagit. Can't wait for the steelhead season. Good luck!

Fished it from Marblemount to Sutter Creek in a drift boat on Saturday from 10am to 3pm. We caught and released a 15+lb native steelhead on a blue Hot Shot while plugging by the Big Bend and it gave a big fight. The river is low and very clear with little crowds. Just as a reminder, the Skagit and Sauk close on Feb. 16.

I got one strike right away, and that turned out to be the most action I got all day. I fished a couple holes along the S. Skagit HWY using spoons, jigs, yarn, and eggs. I talked to a couple boats and a few bankies, only one person said they caught one, and that it was a nate on some eggs. Rule changes on monday.

Two days ago..i hooked seven steelies in the upper skagit, near the cascade..i was float fishing all day with sandshrimp and roe. I was getting no results. So i switched to a pink worm and started activating the big Rainbows. I was three for three in one of the tailouts. When the drift was throuroughly worked, i swithced to another run down the stream and hooked four more..only landing two.. i kept the two biggest hens that came back to back. a great steelhead adventure!
