Salmon fishing was tough over the weekend. The fish that were in the lower river either moved up or were off the bite. There were some nice adults still being caught this week however, so fresh kings are still making their way in. The rain coming Saturday will likely bring in some new fish, but they’ll be moving quickly as it’s getting late. There are some silvers in the lower river along with a few steelhead. Boat pressure has tailed off. As a reminder, the lower river quota has been met and salmon over 23 inches must be released.
