Pulled plugs on the Skagit upstream from the launch at Rockport for 3 hours. No luck, but first time on the river so no clue where to fish. Water was crystal clear despite constant rain.

I spent the weekend on 9/8-9 fishing for humpies at Steelhead Park in Darrington,UN-FREAKIN'-REAL! I got over 25 in about 4 hours! AND 3 silvers to boot!  
 
I came back the following weekend and she had her license this time, so we fished together...She got 14 in about 2 hours, and I got about the same...with one silver!  
 
All catch and release..OF COURSE!  
 
THIS weekend 10/13-14 the run of pinks had come in...and we were about 2 weeks late. The fish were looking mighty tattered and beat up, dark, and ugly. The banks were full of them, Kings running about 30-45 lbs, silvers about 12 lbs, and humps about 6-7 lbs. Not many hits, I caught 1 silver- not too shiny, threw the hen back...and a couple of hit and a miss... All in all a great weekend, with the weather sunny and 68 degrees! A BEAUTIFUL FALL WEEKEND!!

A buddy and I fished the Skagit just above the bridge at Concrete, threw a variety of spoons. He caught a 10-12# hen chum, I hooked (and eventually lost) a nice Dolly. Overall fihsing very slow, with visibility here only about 2 ft.

Fished the Skagit (southside) just upriver and east of Concrete but below the Baker. Water color/clarity has improved greatly since Sat., but still has a ways to go to be as good as Rockport.  
 
Only had an hour to fish one hole, but tried egg clusters, a couple of different spoons, then switched to green corky and yarn. Did see a couple of Chum, but no bites.

Yesterday I went fishing on the Skagit just below the mouth of the Sauk with my woolridge sled. We launched at howard miller and ran down to the mouth of the Sauk. We started fishing just above the mouth. We lowered our plugs into the water. A nice native slammed my hot shot size 35 in blue scale and red gills about a 8th of a mile down stream than the Sauk River in a deep hole by the mouth of a slough. About 5 or6 minutes I brought the 6 pounder to hand and quikly released it. It was the only steelhead of the day. About 30 minutes down river I switched to drifting roe and a corky and landed 1 dolly about 17 inches in the next 3 hours and then I headed back up to howard miller. On the way back up I saw a man playing a steelhead on a bar after pulling his drift boat over. I ran over and pulled up on the bar and watched him land a native probably bound for the Sauk that was probably 18 pounds. Then I headed back home. Curtis

Fished hard from Birdview down to Hamilton and than back up above Birdview from my sled. Spent most of the day out and ended up with two Dollies for my efforts. Nice size Dollies but unfortunately had to kill one of them as it was bleeding bad. Stomach was full of pieces of decaying Chum so I'm thinking it's not going to taste too good. Hate killing Dollies but hated watching it go belly up down river too. Did get a nice Native Steelhead last Wednesday below Baker River that was gentle released. Have not heard very good reports from any one I'm talking too. Only good side is pressure is very lite.

Fished the Skagit near Rockport. Used charteuse yarn and corky to start off and caught a big chum about 18 pounds. The fish was really fresh into the river, he was still a little chrome. Later I switched to a blue vibrax and landed a 22 inch dolly and a native coho about 5 pound. After lunch I came back down to the river and caught 6 chums on charteuse yarn in 2 hours. Then I dicided to try for another coho so I put on some pink yarn and a corky. Immediatly I caught a nice 8 pound hatchery hen coho. I kept the 18 pound chrome bright chum and the hatchery coho for my limit. Normally I don't keep chums but this bugger was too nice to toss back. Curtis

Went to the River last Saturday and Sunday. Caught 3 silvers all about 5-6 lbs on a # 3 Brass Vibrax Spinner. I had several more on, but they are quite good at jumping and spitting the hook.That was the first time I have ever fished for silvers and thanks to past reports, I got the right tackle. So thanks for all the good info. and tight lines.

Fished the Skagit for about two hours Sun 8/18 with a #3 brass blue fox spinner. Caught one nice steelhead about 10 lbs. and two bull trout about 2 lbs. The bull trout were released in good condition without being touched or handled. I brought the steelhead home for dinner.

Released an eight or ten pound chum today on the lower skagit. Yes! I did say chum__ In July__ on the Skagit. These fish usually start to show in October. Also saw what looked like a even-year pink. It fell off the hook at the bank. Some, but not many, early silvers are showing already and a few sockeye are still straggling in along with some jacks, kings, steelhead, dollies and a few early harvest trout. Is their another place where it's possible to catch all five NW salmon species plus steelhead, dollies and cuthroat in the same spot on the same day?

The Skagit has been up for over a week now. Plenty of water. Near to above normal flow with lots of leaves and good visibility. The leaves have cleared some but the flow is getting a bit low for ideal chum plunking water. It's great for silvers and hardware. --- There's been lots of fish around Woolley in spite of the incessant netting by the egg stripping fish dumping Upper Skagit criminals. The tribe has curtailed the fish wasting practice temporarily due to a public image crisis. --- We've caught lots of chum and silvers and a few pinks everyday during the last week or so with most of the chum and silvers being nice bright fish. Plenty of spunk. A few chum have been pure chrome but most have some color but no black on their belly yet. Some are getting dark, as are some of the silvers. The ratio of silvers to chum caught seems to be about half. --- I watched a red silver about 14 lbs. swim right by my rig today hoping it would just keep moving. It did but a chrome hen about 6 lbs. grabbed my spoon shortly afterwards. That's the only fish I caught today. I fished 1-1/2 hours. My success rate about doubles with bait instead of just spoons or spinners. ---There are also rumors of a few early steelhead.

*** Wednesday evening… Arrived at the river above Hwy 9 about 6:15. I threw a brass #3 vibrax until dark hooking 3 silvers and landing 1 hen. *** Thursday afternoon… Arrived at the river above Hwy 9 about 1:30. I threw the same brass vibrax for 30 minutes before I donated it to a log pile. I fish on for about 3 seconds. I then changed my tactics to plunking. I rigged a white spin bobber with a sand shrimp on a 30-inch leader off the bottom three-way swivel above an eight-ounce weight on a ten-inch dropper. Two feet above this I rigged a brass Wells Spoon with a chartreuse tail on a 20 inch leader off a second three-way swivel. Ten minutes after I threw it out my pole began throbbing so I plucked it out of the holder and set the hook. FISH ON! After about 10 seconds of fighting a feisty little fish my pole about got yanked out of my hands and the reel started howling. I had to reset the drag three times before I stopped the run. Here the fight got really erratic… sometimes pulling strong and other times going nearly slack with the fish seemingly unable to consistently run in any direction. When I got it near shore I saw why. I drug a nice bright six pound hen silver and a fresh ten pound buck humpy onto the beach. *** Not too shabby! Two Fish in One Cast! *** I fished the rest of the day for a total of about fifteen fish with a ratio of about two humpies per one silver. One out of three fish took the spoon and all but one of the silvers were on the shrimp and spin bobber. I took two silvers home, both in the six-eight pound range. All in all it was a good day on the water even though it rained a bit.

Headed up to a plunking hole just above Hwy 9 on the Skagit this afternoon for the evening bite. When I got there, there were two other fishermen with no fish. They said that one dog was lost earlier and two were lost Tuesday for one caught. Four fishermen on Monday caught 1 dolly and one dog. The Monday dog weighed 27 lbs. It was released. I rigged up a purple rubber salamander behind a purple bobber with white wings, added one drop of shrimp oil, and threw it out about 3:00 PM. I grabbed a beer and sat down on my chair and and was digging out a smoke when my bell started ringing. Music to my ears! Fish on in less than five minutes. Grabbed the pole and set the hook into a solid object. Snag? Nope, it headed down river fast against a pretty tight drag. I snugged it down to the point that I wondered whether the line or the fish was going to give. Relief! The line held and the fish turned out towards the middle with less than 75 feet of line. It was a hot fish with speed and strength and a love of acrobatic leaping and the creativity of a master. It continually changed tactics racing to the bank and then out towards the middle and up river and then down again. Lots of jumping and head shaking too. I hate it when they just lay in the strong water sideways testing your arm in a boring way. Not this one. It was a fighter. Fifteen or twenty minutes later it came to the net. Nice fish. It was bright for a chum and about twenty-two pounds. About an hour later a second fish hooked up and I let another less tried fisherman bring it in. It was about eighteen pounds and not nearly as bright. He had just bought his first smoker so I gave him both fish to break it in. Not a bad day on the Skagit. - Plunker
