Forum and Community Announcements / Re: 2018 Nooksack section closure
« Last post by dj2loud on October 28, 2018, 10:49:43 AM »
The closure is up at the confluence, not at the bridge in deming near IGA... THis is between the north fork/south fork confluence to the highway 9  bridge... In reality it's a deep section that does hold fish at times and there is usually a tribal shore net that's anchored there..... Don't know how many times its been cut up or left on the shore but but i hear this may be one of the reasons...

Most of the nets I see, were under the bridge, which would still be in the open area.

I was wondering about this closure too.

I'll have you know that I have been up there fishing as well and doing well center pinning.  I had one flosser brag about how well his skill was at catching fish. I pointed out that those fish coming in backwards from being hooked in the tail or gut and back were really biting.

I've seen a ton of snagged fish kept this year. Its like the wall up there.

Floated from 9 to Nug's on Saturday, caught 4 fish over about 8 hours spent on the river. The water is low and clear and it is making the fishing just a touch harder. We talked to a couple drift boats who did that entire float and caught zero fish.

Overall floating eggs has been most successful by far for me, I've spent a few days up at the SF hatchery out-fishing the flossers by a good margin.

Killed them today on the upper  river. not a lot of water but still fun.

NF or SF Bigfish?

Nice!

Yes, I believe that I could have kept the unclipped fish.. however, it was my first fish (and strike) of the season, and I feel good about letting the first one go.  Also, I want the big unclipped (wild??) ones to have a chance to breed in the river.  That is my way of giving back to the river.  I have volunteered for NSEA more than once, but don't really have time for that.  I probably will always release the big unclipped ones (even if I think they will eventually be caught in a net...).  I am not quite to the point of only using barbless hooks even if I am allowed to use barbed, but releasing the big ones is something I plan to do.  It's good karma, and allows me to feel good about taking clipped fish like these home to eat  ;D

Got this buck and hen today (21st).  Buck in the morning, hen in the afternoon.  Lost two others.  Only lost one lure.  Overall a great day!
