    went to minter creek today. Not many fish in lower section of river yet, but the fish stacked up by the hatchery above the deadline were huge!! upper teens and quite a few over twenty lbs.People were fishing the kiddie pools just below the dead line.Also tried chico creek in silverdale, but the Indians had a huge prosesing boat anchored offshore and several moter boats setting nets all across the inlet. Needless to say no fish for sports fishermen .I wish I could find out what days they are netting,it is a waste of time to fish on the days that they are.

    Forgot about tides so I jus took off to minter. Not a whole lot of fish(yet) but enough to get something. Got one 12lbs for the smoker. Things will pick up in a week or so, it's a new moon.

    Hit Minter below overpass both morning incoiming and afternoon outgoing, lots of fish starting to show up,A 1/4 oz jig with chartruce maribou works great, and you dont have to snag a bunch of fish .

    Fished minter for the first time today and there was some good action but not until around 4 pm when the tide got low and fish flooded downstream of the hatchery, it was a slay fest at that point. I hooked about 15 or so landing 5 but none were worth keeping except for some chrome hens I lost at the bank. Using green/chartreuse corkies or beads with or without a prawn and yarn. Good Luck!

    Fished the dogs below the bridge near the bend. My friend and I got out there around 7 AM, fished until 1045 and hooked up 20 times each, landing ten each. The fishing actually seemed really slow. Most of the fish were really dark. We did not catch any nice chrome fish worth keeping, although my friend landed one really nice one. Black yarn, no corkie, leader length 3-4 foot.

    Hit the creek again today and was a bit slower from yesterday. Caught one nice chromer like "Chasin' Tails" fish on the CHUM? thread,at the bridge. Would post picks, but haven't been aproved yet. Ran into good company again today. All in all a nice day at the creek. No disrespect "Chasin Tails" for using your handle in this report, just want to point out how sweet my fish was today.

    Fished Minter today from the overpass down almost to the salt water. I was using a bobber and chartruse maribou jig. I caught several just bellow the overpass, but it got to crowded with amatures all casting over everyone so I went down stream.Not many fish comming up with the tides yet, most of the fish were comming down from the hatchery at low tide.Mostly friendly people but I had two guys tell me that fishing a bobber and jig was not compatable with the way they were fishing(snagging) and wanted me to leave "ther spot"

    Crowded, crowded crowded. Fish are in but finding a honey hole is the problem. Lots of fouled fish being taken also. Crazy meat hole. Went 2/6

    Fish this creek for the first time and it was combat fishing at its best. Lowtide came around and fishing was insane just cast and fish on! Most fish were foul hook. Landed a chrome hen. Good day of fishing.

    Fished Minter below over pass on afternoon outgoing tide.What a cluster -uck!!! Water was very high and fast and full of debries. A ton of fresh fish are finally comming in though. Most of the fish were laying up against the banks and in the soft water in huge pods trying to keep out of the fast flood waters. I tried drifting a bobber and jig but the fish were packed so tight I was not able to make a drift with out foul hooking them.Hope they hang arround until the water comes down!!
