Holy rain storm! After a few days of record rainfall the creeks went from bony to raging. The channel turned to chocolate milk and the king fishing slowed up. But the rain has subsided for the most part and things are getting back on track.

Only two days left to fish Windfall Creek Sockeye. Saturday June 26 and Wednesday June 30 are your last chance to intercept a chromer. The extra water should help the fishery as the conditions had been so low that getting any kind of a drift was tough. Come July 1 the creek is closed to all fishing for the entire month of July.

King fishing should keep going for the next week or two until a huge slug of chums come in and put the bite off. Keep in mind that Chartreuse has been a hot color for kings this year. The Rockstar Chartreuse has been a big winner.

Dollies had been super hot in lower Montana Creek and Cowee Creek and when the water drops it should turn back on.  It won't be long until the chums show up in the creeks and even more Dollies push in.

 Finally, the first few pinks have been seen out in Echo Cove back by the boat launch. If you haven't ever hooked one of these fish in June you are in for a treat. They will run you into your backing!

 See you on the water. Brad
