Nooksack Steelhead Updates
« on: January 13, 2018, 07:10:58 AM »
Hi all, well my weekend is a bust! I was supposed to head out to forks to fish with Issac Prince of NO SLACK GUIDE SERVICE but was cancelled due to the rivers rising from all the rain on thursday and friday and supposed to continue thru next week.... Fished the nook for a few hours friday morning, Hooked 6 coho, and 3 chum... YES I DID SAY 3 CHUM still in the system and a few more still on beds..... Hooked two steel but hooksets were not good and lost them both a few feet from the bank... They are here and at least one of them was decent sized... Started out at the firehouse and ended up at the 9 bridge with a long walk back...... Been hearing reports from a local guide that there was 2 nets strung up below the hatchery at kendall, and 2 still in the lower river near deming... Can't confirm them with my own eyes but this guys pretty damn reputable......

Nets in salt and freshwater=almost zero for river fishermen😤 We are getting the short end of the stick.
Why buy a fishing license?
