had a good time fishing with friends this past week end. everyone limited out except me. But i did catch my very first sockeye salmon. it was really exciting. I have to thank my friends Glen, Ivan, and Neil for sharing their knowledge on how to fish for salmon. i cant wait for September to start fishing for cohos. We used spin and glos and sand shrimp and some scent.

Got to the river around noon with my good friend william AKA the salmonslayer14 and got a hit right away on a green and silver wing bobber and sand shrimp tails but it didnt stick. At about 3 I got another hit and once again it got away , around four it got red hot( at least for what we were used to) and william got a nice fish on and once again it got off. Around five using the same rig up I got the first hit on, I got a nibble, heart racing I grabbed my pole and felt to make sure she was still there and gave a solid hook set which thankfully stuck and landed me my very first sockeye. I rated this a five because it was a beautiful day which ended in a fish, also we saw a 4-5 ft sturgeon finning the surface about 150 ft from shore. to top it of I saw a massive beaver swimming right in close to shore.

I Got a late start to hit young's bar on the skagit river With the Fishwhisper, I dident see any fish when I got there I was told it was alright in the morning Anyways I was using the standard Sand Shrimp and wing bobber rig up, I was just Fishing the tail and was using a metallic Pink and the top was chartreuse Wing bobber It wasent more than a hour and I look up and my pole was shaking so I set the hook and BAM i had my first sockeye on. It came in pretty easy for the most part. Laned it and then started fishing for a few more hours. I had a few hits but no more take downs. Over all I rated it a 4 because it was my first sockeye ever.

I got there later then I had wanted to. Fished the soccer field area for 3 hours. I started with the standard plunking gear and shrimp. I fished that for a hour or so with no luck. I thought I'd change up gear. I tried Wicked Wiley's (pink) I tried drifting I evens tried a float and jig. Not one bite. Come to think of it there wasn't any real movement in the water. Patients were wearing out when I thought I'd try one of my flies that I made for Baker Lake this year since my bait goes bad the second day. Any ways i toss my fly out there a couple times. I see that it's almost noon I thought I'd throw my line out there 5 or 6 more times then I'm out. 4th cast I get a hit. Pole down I had a fish on my line. I played it for awhile not wanting to lose it. As I got it closer I thought I might have a nice king and was going to have to set it free. My hands were shaking my heart was beating. I get my fish up to the shore to see not one spot on its back. I had caught a 8# or better Sockeye. That's my day I packed it up with a couple minutes till noon and a big smile on my face. I had to work for my fish but in the end it was worth it to see that bright red meat.

Here's the flies I made for Baker Lake and the beautiful red meat. You can't get any better then a fresh Sockeye. We'll I'm out good luck and tight lines

OK, so lot’s of times people wonder, why post a “1” report? For myself, it’s to keep track of all my fishing trips, but also, it’s to help the members know what’s going on.

What’s going on with the Skagit River and sockeye is that (at least today) it is dead. No signs of sockeye. No one reporting fish caught. No jumpers seen. Not a good start to this year’s Skagit/Baker Lake season. Hopefully things start turning on or you may want to look at other options rather Baker Lake.

I fished with rseas and Nate Treat from 5am to 1pm. We anchored up in various prime travel lanes and ran sandshrimp and spin n glows. No sockeye, but I did get a 19” Dolly so not a total skunk. I would like to thanks rseas for taking me out and showing me some spots and techniques on the Skagit. No fish this time but I feel able to fish the river in my boat should the opportunity come up.

Fished the soccer field area in Burlington from 6:30 to around noon then again from 5 to 7pm with nothing to show. Used typical spin n glo rigs in various colors with sandshrimp and various scents. The fish checker said around noon there were 2 or 3 fish caught from soccer fields (must have been upstream of us...probably Norm) and a few from around the railroad tracks. Dont think ill be back until coho season unless it gets extended a few more weeks. Seems like the season opened too early. Bring bug spray if your loading the boat during evening. We almost got sucked dry from all the misquitoes at the gardener ramp.

Well heres the weeks report. I fished the mornings on opening weekend and the afternoons during the week. Tough fishing all around with not a lot of fish in. Had a solid take down with line coming off the reel monday afternoon but it came off. Thursday night had another solid takedown and this time a sockeye made its way into the boat. I have been fishing the Burlington area and using standard plunking setups. Hopefully the fishing picks up before it closes. Good luck out there!

Launched out of Gardner at 4:40am. Fished until around 9 or 10, not a bite. Only heard of one fish being caught among a dozen or more boats. Setup was a pink spin-n-glo with sand shrimp.
