Well we have not transitioned into Full Silver mode Here in Puget Sound area While the derby's are done for the season That just means the rivers are going to be kicking into high gear Through November! This is the time of year to really start studying the hydro graphs For water level! As that will pay dividends as to where to fish either high or low in the river system! In general The higher the water The higher in the system and even higher in the particular hole Your fishing! Remember Silvers like that soft froggy no current water best! That's where throwing spinners Or tossing wiggle warts or various plugs Really shine! The weathers changing And the fishing is getting hot!

Snohomish River System

September 30, 2014


Fishing on the Snohomish over the weekend was hit and miss. Lots of fish are starting to move in but the lock jaw that these things get can be frustrating to some. Fortunately, those who are in the know can turn a frustrating day into a good day. Here are some pointers:

Bank or boat anglers need to keep 2 things in mind.  One, don’t be stuck on just one or two tactics. Yes, there are some go to’s that are a must, like Dick Nites and Plugs, but if you have been tossing the same thing over and over again without any luck, then change things up- new color, bigger or smaller size or a new tactic all together. The anglers that are putting fish in the box are doing this and you should be too.  Second. spend your time wisely. If you have been trolling around for hours without any action and have not been seeing anyone landing fish then move up or down river. This also goes for bank anglers. If you have been tossing at one spot for a long time without anything to show for it then it may be time to hit another spot, but which ever you decide to do, don’t get discouraged because the fish you have been looking for can be on your line the very next cast.

Some other helpful tips: I have been having success on plugs like Mag Lips 3.5, Brad’s wigglers, Dick Nite’s (size one)and side drifting eggs.  This is not to say that it’s been the ticket every day, but for the most part this is what has been working for me.  It won’t be long until the next rain, so get your leaders made and keep your tackle box full because the next time out can be your best day yet.
