Hoh River - April 1st, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Mostly sunny
  • 54 ° F 
  • Fishing: Great
Pretty awesome fishing to be had right now. A few good reports from the Hoh this week, as the season winds down it seems that there are still decent numbers of fresh fish filtering thru. With the opportunity to land a true trophy native steelhead, it might be a good idea to head to the OP the next few weeks still.
Puget Sound - March 27th, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Scattered showers
  • 56 ° F 
  • Fishing: Good
A few good reports the past few days, including good friend and client Dave T who landed a few bright SRC's off of a South Sound beach, fishing an ebb tide in the morning with about a 7-8' drop. Another report from Hood Canal indicated a very good bite on chum patterns, with a few bigger fish to hand.
Puget Sound - March 19th, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Windy and Rain
  • 46 ° F 
  • Fishing: Good
So Dan from the shop spent a few hours chasing some SRC's around a South Sound beach this morning. Ended up getting one nice cutt and a rezzie, missed a few as well in a little over 2 hours of fishing an ebb tide.
Looked like fishing was about to really pick up as the tide started to get thru the drop, but work called and the fishing was cut short!
Puget Sound - March 16th, 2014

  • Mostly cloudy
  • 50 ° F 
  • Fishing: Good
Wow, been awhile since we've updated this, please be sure to keep checking back as the reports page is going to be updated frequently from here on out! Puget Sound beaches, particularly the South Sound, have fishing fairly well the past few weeks. Like is often the case early in the season, fishing can run from very hot one day, to pretty slow or non-existent the next. The resident coho seem to finally be showing up, and we've had several reports of active fish in several spots, including the Narrows, and up near Ollala. Chum fry are being seen in a few spots as well, and this being a year after a pink salmon run, expect there to be lots of food available for our cutthroat this spring. Popular patterns include chum fry patterns, smaller shock and awes, and Dave's bead belly shiner. Morning tides this upcoming week look great, so once it starts raining, we say go get 'em!
American Lake - March 13th, 2014
  • Recorded:
  • Partly cloudy
  • 58 ° F 
  • Fishing: Great
So, this is a dual report. American Lake has been decent, with both rainbows and kokanee being landed with some regularity.

But the real killer has been Munn Lake. Our own Don Freeman fished it last Thu, and landed 15 fish over 18" if you can believe it! (we do!)

Most fish ate chrinomids with a few pulled out on buggers as well, mostly size 10 or 8 olive leeches and buggers. Chrinomids were all #16 Greens.
