    Does rabbit slough count?

    Crystal clear water, bit higher than normal, fishing? As good as it gets . BUT!!!! You need to paddle to get to them. The fishing holes that are foot accessible are empty and very tough fishing, the canoes, kayaks, and other assorted small motorless boats were all pulling out with limits in relatively short order.

    Bait is legal in Willow Creek from the mouth to a marker 1/2 mile upstream. The "confluence" at Willow Creek SRA is well within those boundaries.

    Fished willow for about an hour at around 6 at the mouth. Water was high and muddy as previously said. Caught and released 1 pink and the other fish I saw caught were pinks.
    hook, line, sinker, done.

    went to the mouth of willow last night from about 8-10:30. my brother and i probably caught and released over 20 chums, he released a pink, and we got our limit of silvers. bite was on for us the whole time we were there. is it still a 6am-11pm fishery? or is that just during king season? thanks

    LOL. Im just curious. Not asking for your secret weapon. Im just kinda gathering info on what works best where. My best friend is coming to stay with me next summer and we are gonna pretty much live out side on the rivers. If I know what is producing better in which areas I can hopefully maximize our catch and eat rate.

    no secret weapon, just noticed when it was still light out it was green, then when it got darker it started to be better with brighter colors

    Pile of fish at the mouth of Montana and in the creek for that matter.. They are hitting as well and a lot of fun if you like to catch pinks and chum's for fun.. We were there for 4-5 hours this morning and hooked a lot of fish and only one was a silver. I hope they are just late but I don't think that is the case. I saw one other guy with a small silver and other than us with our one that was it..

    Went again this morning from about 630-11. Nothing like the other day, released a pink and my brother released a pink and 2 chums. Very slow going.

    Do you think maybe the chums and pinks that are piled up at the mouth might be late? I do seeings how its August 13th. The fish are tracking late this year. The small silvers means its the beginning of the run, the big ones are still out feeding. From what I can tell this is looking to be an average silver season IMO.... I know these things so be patient





    I'm taking a poll
