Good luck on all your requests. I think you can find bobber and jig water somewhere, if you do let me know. But, I doubt you find less crowded. If you look hard somewhere you maybe able to find all that. Good luck.

Most of the lone fishermen i see at the holes i go to are bob n jiggin it.

If you want the best chance to get on steel, a coastal river's a good bet.

If catching fish is secondary to peacefulness......try the Carbon......not many people fishing there at all.......but be on the lookout, I guess a cougar was spotted wandering the banks aweek ago......i wouldn't let that deter you though...

The green river up around palmer-konasket would be another bet theough a little more crowded but probably more fish.....

And last, the cowlitz either during the daay with the masses or at night with a few less people...

Good luck!

I just hope the rivers hold up with this next storm, all the rivers in my area (Thurston County) are to brown for bobber and jig. I was hoping for a coastal river this weekend but I don't think that is going to hold up either.

Yea the Carbon is a option. That is the river I usually hit but hasn't been productive for me this year for steelhead. The green would be another one. Not sure how to get to the palmer area your talking about. I have fished for flaming geyser up to what I think they call Indian Rock. How do I get there or would this be just as good of an area?

From highway 18,take the Covington exit. Head east about 10 miles until you get to 4 corners( and The Black Diamond Highway)....Keep going east about another 5 miles and look for the sign on the right for Kanasket -Palmer State Park.....Follow signs and it takes you right to the park......several places to fish on the park side, or you can fish at the Hatchery accross the river.

It has been 5 years or so since I have been up there so things might have changed.....hopefully someone else can fill in the details for ya!....good luck

Ok, well thanks for the directions. Still not sure if I want to go to flaming geyser or to kanasket-palmer. Does anyone feel one place is better than the other or which one might be the least crowded. Also if I go up to the further spot am I gonna need to dig up some waders for the girl or not. Thanks for all the insight
