SPECIES RATING BEST TIDE BEST TIME OF DAY BEST DEPTHS(ft)
Chinook Salmon to 12 lbs MEDIOCRE Flood Mid Afternoon 130 to 180
Chum Salmon to 15 lbs GOOD N/A N/A 30 to 130
Not Targeted: Coho Salmon, Lingcod, Pink Salmon, Rockfish, Sockeye Salmon
It starting to look like it going to be a very good winter fisheries for Chinooks. Loads of just under size are hanging around. If the feed sticks the will also. Just hoping the herring fisheries do not happen in this area. Grande to the waterfall and the top end (north) of Thrasher is very productive with Springs. Small spoons of Green & white and blue and whites and also anchovies with Teaser heads (bait helmets as our Americans friends say).
The last of the Chums are heading up river with all this rain. Just came back from Gold stream with loads of Chums spawning. At least 1 of the species doing well.
Looks like pawning in the area has bounced back nicely. Remember to take only what you need and toss back the berried ones.

Stay dry and get out (when the winds die down)
