Skookumchuck Fishing
« on: December 27, 2017, 05:01:04 PM »
I am thinking about heading to the river tomorrow morning. Fairly new to salmon fishing but was wondering if they are still running or is it to late.

Not sure where u live but the Satsop is probably a better bet.  Might be late for the Satsop although it gets and A and B run of cohos.

Rooks...

Watch the USGS water data for Skookumchuck Bloody Run...fish every drop from now through late March.

I'm a local but not much of a fisherman.  I do know it is hard to pull a chrome out of there but they are in there.  It can get very crowded at times and be legal 100%, don't be hiding chromes in puddles!  I get a kick out of all the gear in the trees come spring when the water is down and fishers gone.!
