Barr Creek between Rockport and Marblemount.
Waited weeks for the river to drop to walk the Barr Creek gravel bar. Water was crystal clear. The Chum were there thick, with about a dozen guys doing flyrod C&R for them. No Coho or Steelhead, just lots of rolling Chum. I was happy to see this because the netting wiped out the Chum run the last few years.
Fished sunup to sundown. Saw many foul hooked fish, not a single one fair biting. Odd thing, they were all bucks. Caught and released a couple Dollies. A beautiful day!

Another day, another Big Skunk O. This is getting old...

Got to fish today with rseas. We launched out of Marblemount and motored down below the mouth of the Cascade to some very fishy holes. Anchored up at a killer spot, saw a few rising and thought the fish gods would smile on us this day. It was not to be. Threw everything at em - eggs, Dick Nites, spinners, twitched jigs. Rseas had one on briefly early in the day that spit the hook. Ventured down from this prime spot and tried a couple other locations, again, spots that looked primed and likely to hold fsih, but nada.

The water was in great shape, very clear, running a bit fast at 6,300 cfs. Sunny skies, what more could anglers ask for? Oh ya, how about a few fish, LOL?

Couldn't explore as far down river as I would have liked due to approaching a tail out that looked just a tad too skinny to run my jet boat through. It was either "no guts no glory" or "discretion is the better part of valor". I chose the later. Next time I'll have to bring my pontoon and do it as a drift. The scenery is very nice up there!

I had the privilege of fishing with Danny from River Chrome Guide Service yesterday with my dad and father in law. I booked this trip early on in the season and had been looking forward to it ever since. I do a lot of fishing on my own all year around. I'd consider myself an avid angler, and really of all kinds. I love anything from the lakes to the ocean and in between. However, being like most, I work way more than I want to at a job that doesn't allow me to catch fish :) Therefore, time is invaluable when I'm actually out fishing.

I want to thank Danny for putting us on fish all day. Danny is a top notch angler, and beyond that a top notch and truly professional guide. Even in tough low water conditions he had the right weapons and strategy to get these amazing fish to bite. Me, being the avid angler I am, learned A LOT. I say this because though many times I actually feel like I know what I'm doing on the water, someone doing it every day simply knows more. I can assure you, it pays to fish with these people and learn new things. Plus, it's just plain fun.

In the end I think we landed over 10 fish - a mix of coho, coho jacks, a beautiful trout, and a couple of kings that were released. Give it some rain and that likely would have been 30+ fish day. I HIGHLY recommend whether you are new to angling or have been doing it your entire life to consider hiring a guide in the waters you might know so well, or ones that you don't. At the end of the day you become a better fisherman, simple as that. Thanks again Danny!

Now I just need to buy that drift boat... There is nothing more beautiful than floating our state rivers.

Fished from 1:30pm to about 5:45pm off Burlington sand bar just below railroad bridge. Used Dick Nites until about 4:30, getting nothing the entire time.

I shifted over to plunking an orange wing bobber w/ mylar wings and fresh-cured eggs. Quickly caught a small trout which managed to tangle my leader, but then on the next set I did get a nice-sized buck. Had one other solid strike and a couple of tugs (likely more trout) over the next hour until dinner time.

For now they seem to be liking the eggs and that's what I'll be staying with.

Bank fished the Skagit near Concrete. No bites except a few excited Dolly's. This is my first year trying for river coho, so I'm working to get over the learning curve. Fished the first 4 hours with a Brad's Wiggler, then switched to a silver/purple Vibrax. There were fish rolling, though few and far between. Looked as though 3 schools moved through while I was there. I was surprised to see fish and not get any hits on the Wiggler.

I started out early this morning in burlington. Then from there I went all the way up to rockport and tried a couple spots for a bit before going up to the cascade. Finished my trip by stopping upriver of sedro by the power lines. I only saw a few moldy kings jumping around and not a single silver. Pretty frustrating really since I drove so far over the course of this fishin trip. I tried twitchin jigs (in a few different colors), then tossing some vibrax around as well as bottom bouncing dick nites. The natives were netting as well and I didnt see them bring in any fish either. It has to happen eventually!!!

It's been slow so far this year. Not many fish in yet. I have made 4 trips so far and have only had 4 fish hit the deck. All have came on plugs. Any day now some good numbers should show.

Went bright and early on the Skagit. I was casting from the bank and there were a few others also. There were many boats drifting down. One of the boats landed about a 6-7 pounder near the hole I was fishing. Shortly after the boat drifted by I hooked a little guy. He would have been a keeper but he got away. Would have been my first salmon after a 28 year hiatus. Decided to check on a few other holes up river and saw another one landed. Another 6-7 pounder. I was using a green Dick Nite. I'm not sure what the others were using.

Decided to take a fishing outing with Fishenfreak on the Skagit. We had to work for our fish. Even though there were coho rolling in almost every hole we fished, getting them to bite was another story. However, we managed to find a few willing to dance. Ended the day with 5 Coho and 3 Kings (Kings released). All the fish came on eggs with the exception of one. Overall great day on the river since we only saw one other fish caught.
