Fishing report: Better action off Westport for salmon

RIVERS
Cedar: The trout fishing has been fair to good, especially early or late in the day. Dry flies will produce smaller rainbows. For bigger fish, use double nymph rigs with a large stonefly and a smaller nymph like a flashback pheasant tail.

Wynoochee: A few steelhead are being, with the action slowed a bit by low water levels. Try using a nightmare-pattern jig under a bobber, or small clusters of eggs or corkies.

Yakima: The trout fishing has been good during the day and very good in the evening. Fish a heavy nymph in the current seams during

Fishing report: Action at trout lakes improves

Here are some highlights from the fishing report that will appear in Satuday’s Sports section.

Rivers

Carbon: The coho action remains pretty good, with most people bringing home a fish. Bobber and eggs are effective when the water is clear and corkies and yarn in rocket red are another good option.

Chehalis: The river has been producing some large chinook salmon, just not a lot of fish. Fishing with eggs under a bobber has been effective. Anglers also are picking quite a few coho and some steelhead.

Green: After fishing well mid week, the river has been slow late in

Fishing report: Saltwater action still good for coho

Here are some early reports from the fishing report that will appear in Wednesday’s Sports section.

Lewis: Anglers are catching a mix of fall chinook, coho and a few steelhead.  Quite a few chinook and coho jacks are being caught. As of Monday, any chinook, adipose fin clipped or not, may be retained on the mainstem Lewis.

Nisqually: Try orange corkies and yarn for coho and chinook.

Rivers

Nisqually: The action has slowed down in recent days. Anglers are catching a few dark chinook, but not much else.

Fishing report: Low river levels slow action, North Sound hot spot for coho

Here is a preview of the fishing report that will run in Saturday’s Sports section.

Saltwater

North Coast: The best salmon fishing last week was off La Push, where anglers averaged 1.15 fish per person. Most of the fish were coho. At Neah Bay, the catch rate dropped to .85 salmon per person.

North Sound: The coho fishing has been excellent in recent weeks, in fact the best it has been in several years. The stretch from Browns Bay south to the Marine Area 10 line has been a great spot. Farther north, try Naketa Beach, Shipwreck and Picnic points.
