Fished for a couple hours with my 4 year old--he loves it. Water was flowing well and a milky green color. No bites. 1 truck near the fields, but we parked at the lower lot (not up by the deadline) and walked down to some slots.

Fished from 730-11am today. Lost one just below the log in my photo. I fished several holes around 'the fields' area and didn't see anyone else, nor did I see any fish hanging around. Very quiet and nice. The river is a bit high with a darker green color. Good luck!

My dad , jaecob and I fished the skook from 6:30 to 10:00. About 7:00 I hooked my first fish of the year but lost it after a 15 second fight. About 30minutes later, I hooked my second fish of the day and brought it in but had to release it, because it was wild about 8 lbs.

Fished from noon to around 5:30pm. Fished above the plunking hole on the island. If you don't know where the island is, walk above the plunking hole a couple hundred yards and you will see an island/gravel bar! Landed a one punch 6 pounder. Pretty good color still. Small pink corky, pink yarn with sand shrimp scent. Quite a few guys out for a Tuesday. River is starting to look better.

River is putting out a few fish that's for sure. Lots of cars and lots of people. More than half dark or retread. Even Vernell caught one, a beauty I might add.

Hit the skook from 1200-2000. Hooked up with one but lost right at the net. The river is far from perfect but managable. I seen about 50 cars parked at the end of the road by hatchery and did not see 1 person fishing there tho, where do you all go?

While working at dam on Wednesday, I personally saw close to 25 fish taken from the pool area below dam. Some dark a few bright. I have to get my project done up there before I can hit the river. Will probably get to start on Tuesday. The few guys I talked to said they were using spin and glos and shrimp.

the report is true about the fish being recycled. verified that with dj country store too while getting some smokes. they recycle every Thursdays and sometimes Fridays. I went yesterday by the plunk hole and lost 3 on nightmare jig but seen at least 15 to 16 fish caught all morning guys up at the deadline had most action. guess if you fish at night is the best time because the fish are bolting up river to spawn. some really nice looking bright fish caught along with some not so bright.

Over a thousand have returned to the hatchery, the recycling has begun. There are some darker punched ones, water has been just too high until recent.

Went fishin last night and got the usual 0/0, I did see 1 fish hooked. I didn't try to cross knowing what happened last time. I was using a big black corky and shrimp because it works best in high water. Get ready to catch springers, I hope I can get one this year.

"can't help but get a few on and bring a couple in" c'mon quit putting lies on here. Legitimate report: fished below the trollie car for the first half of the day yesterday. Seen a couple roll. Seen one hooked. I didn't have any luck. Went up top seen 2 others hooked at the deadline on yarnballs and one on jig the one they landed was a colored up buck. The run this year hasn't been good at all and with the rain were supposed to get, you might as well get ready for springersm

Got to the fields about 730am, and went to my usual spot. Pink worm with bright pink jig head on a bobber and caught an 8lb hen within 45 mins. Fished for a while more but nada. Water was brownish and a bit muddy; higher flow but apparently just right. First steelhead there this year. I guess there are some in there...

Didn't go fishing today, didn't fall in the river, etc etc. But will be there soon, would love to meet up the guy pretending to be, that doesn't know how to fish. Checked down in Centralia today. My favorite hole was taken 2 guys with 3 fish there, using purple spin and glos with shrimp
