Fishing Reports

Oh Baby it's Cold Outside

Joel La Follette - Thursday, January 12, 2017


Current weather conditions have put a damper on fishing opportunities here in our part of the state. Local streams are icy and getting there is challenging. The outlook calls for warmer wet weather as we head into next week. That means we'll see a bump in river levels as the white stuff melts away and rain hits frozen ground. In fact, the forecast for most area streams looks like a space launch with blast off scheduled for Tuesday. Of course, this is just a forecast and we all know how that works. Watch the gage on your favorite river and plan accordingly.

If you find yourself on the Sandy or Clackmas rivers over the next few days, low and slow is the ticket. Cold water will have fish hunkered down and lethargic. Fish deeper and slow down your swing. If you haven't tried the new Airflo F.I.S.T. Skagit head, you may want to think about it.

Travel to the east side of the state is brutal with record amounts of snow covering the landscape. Temps in the single digits or teens through the weekend will give way to slightly warmer and damp weather starting Monday. Things could be a mess for awhile. Trout chasers should be tying massive amounts of BWOs and Little Black Stones for when things sort themselves out in the coming weeks. If you go, be careful.

The coast will fish pretty good the remainder of this week and weekend, if you can get out of town. Conditions are fantastic when compared to what we're seeing here. Temps in the 30s and 40s seem downright tropical. Expect a bump as the next system moves in on Monday.

Be safe out there, drive and wade with caution!
