Snohomish River Opens For Pinks/coho From Hwy 9 To Confluence Sunday 16th August
The Snohomish will open tomorrow above the Hwy 9 bridge to the confluence for Pink and Coho salmon. Remember that Chinook and Chum are off limits and closed for retention. The limit is four salmon of which only three can be Coho. Though we are still early in the season, there are good numbers of pinks in the river at the present time. The lower section of the Snohomish (below Hwy 9) produced at least some fair pink salmon fishing this week for a few of our customers. Not red hot by any means but at least they did catch some fish. We did speak to one of our customers that explored the upper section of the Snohomish this week and did see fair numbers of pinks in the river. The river is very low and running clear, though the rain yesterday and today may put in a little color and bring the river up a bit as well as cool the temperature down - perhaps putting the fish on a bite.
Though the regulations say the lower Skykomish River (below Lewis St. Bridge) opens tomorrow for salmon fishing it is in fact not open as it was closed to all fishing until further noticeby emergency regulations.
We have lots of river pink salmon gear in stock and will be more than happey to help you out in rigging up.
