After giving up this summer after several trips to the Wynoochee and Humptulips Rivers, I have been following the post's others are making on other forums about both rivers. The news ain't good. Both rivers should have fish in them but I am hearing that both are in the single digits for fish taken. The Nooch in particular should be pretty hot right now but reports from reliable fishermen are of one or two fish taken last week and about the same amount seen laying in the holes throughout the river. I've heard lots of explanations - the fish are late (sorry not buying), the river is low (it's been hot fishing with lower water before), smolt mortality, or "ocean conditions". I'm getting the sinking feeling that some of the runs in rivers in WA are in big trouble this year. I've heard that the rivers on the upper Peninsula are also slow. I haven't heard much about the Cowlitz and other SW rivers, can someone give a quick report? What about the Oregon rivers? Keep in mind I am not looking to have people swarm to your favorite river or hole so don't be afraid to be vague, just say hot or cold. You can even pm me if you don't want to post here.
