    Cowlitz River Fishing Report

    11/28/2014

    The Coho on the Cowlitz river are still rolling. The hatchery has been consistently reporting good numbers in their traps making the Cowlitz river a good option for late run Coho fishing. Best bets are up by the dam, but still plenty of Coho through out the river.

    This is the down side of the run and many of the fish have turned to the dark side but there are still some nice ones in there.

    With the recent rains the action should be pretty good this weekend on the Cowlitz. Our Lunker's Guide fishing forecast for the Cowlitz is good to Great!

    Yeah, it was running pretty hot. those 3/8 oz jigs were able to get down pretty quick. People floating eggs weren't doing to well. Jigs are the way to go

    ITS NOT YOUR IMIGANITION...B RUN STEELHEAD ARE WAY DOWN ON THE COWLITZ AND WATER IS WAY UP SO ITS TOUGH FISHING...

    EVEN THE GUIDES AREN'T DOING THAT WELL...OF COURSE THEY SAY THEY ARE KILLING THEM BUT WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IF YOU WERE TRYING TO GET SOMEONE TO GIVE YOU $200.00 PLUS FOR HALF A DAYS FISHING FOR 2 FISH.....

    DRAGGING 4-5-6-7 HOOKS INTO A FISHS FACE IS THE MOST PRODUCTIVE WAY RIGHT NOW....HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SKILL...

    AND THEY DON'T CARE ONE BIT IF THEY CAST OVER, UNDER, AROUND YOU IN THE RIVER TO SNAG FISH.

    Maybe the guides should pack it up and get a job stocking shelves. Hooked lots of fish with on a piece of backer foam this year. Anyone can get a guide license most of these guys are overhyped.
