I have not fished the Cowlitz for a couple of years. I am planning on going down mon 12-31. I used to walk a trail at the end of the parking lot down to the Point. I would fish downstream from the hatchery intake creek all the way to the Point where this side branch of the Cowlitz joined the main Cowlitz.. Are people still catching fish along this side branch for the Cowlitz and on the Point or has all the action moved up to the new intake by the boat launch. Do fish still come into Blue Creek?? I would prefer to fish the area I have for years instead of learning a new game by the new intake creek. Don't mind the hike, but only want to do it if it is worth it.
