Columbia River fishing report for Sep 30, 2012

By October 2, 2012Fishing Reports

What a September it has been on the Columbia River and Lewis River for Fall Chinook! 2012 has been a well above average year for the Chinook on the Columbia River, Lewis River, and Cowlitz River so far! With thousands of Fall Chinook still to come in through October, and November, the Lewis typically remains a strong fishery for another month and a half! With a very short break between Winter Chinook and Winter Steelhead, colder (but not to cold) weather returns to the Pacific North West but the fishing will start heating up for the Winter Steelhead on the tributaries of the Columbia River. By late December Winter steelheading is in full swing and lasts through most of March on the Lewis and Cowlitz Rivers. Don’t get cabin fever this fall and winter, come join us on some dynamite fishing to come!
