Here are some early reports as I work on the fishing report for Wednesday’s newspaper:
Hood Canal: A few chinook are being caught, but the action is far from hot and heavy, Adams said.
Sekiu: The salmon fishing has been very good, with anglers catching mostly chinook but also a fair number of coho. There were 281 anglers checked by the state at Sekiu docks Saturday and their catch included 111 chinook and 66 coho.
Merwin: The lake is fishing well for tiger muskies. The fish are holding amid the growing weed beds and among fallen trees along the shore, said Todd Reis of Reis’ Extreme Musky Fishing. He has been landing fish measuring around 40 inches using 6-inch jointed swimbaits.
Columbia-Brewster Pool: Sockeye salmon continue to be caught, although the action is up one day and down the next. Try using a big Mack’s Lures Double D Dodger with a Mack’s Mini Cha Cha Squidder in pink and white on a 12-inch leader. Bait the hooks with chunks of cured shrimp.
