There is a lot going on right now so lets get to it.

Kings -  The king run has gone from ramping up to full on. Last night's tide had rollers and jumpers all over the place. Quite a few anglers hooked up and several fish made it to the net. Fish Creek after the high (on the dropping tide) and the surrounding areas have been most  productive.  Make sure to have your No-See-Um Head Net as the bugs are epic this year.

Sockeye at Windfall Creek - Reports from Saturday were of fairly low water in spite of all the rain. It seems like quite a few fish moved up. Hopefully the huge tides this week will reload the creek with fresh bright fish. Wednesday it is back on.

Dolly Varden - The Channel has finally really caught fire. Salmon Creek, the beaches across from Salmon Creek on Douglas Island, and little Kowee Creek by the Douglas Bridge have all been hot.

Finally, Cowee Creek out the road has filled up with Dollies. They annually make their move into the rivers about this time and reports are good. Try downstream from the bridge with a Pink Clouser Minnow, Battle Creek Special, or Pearl Pink Egg Sucking Leech.

See you out there, Brad
