How to fish the puyallup river?

The pages, and posts on this blog should have enough info to get you into plenty of fish this coming fall. I'm concentrating strictly on the Puyallup River, because I live so close to it, but the methods, and research can be applied to any glacially fed river.
The pages about WHAT TO USE - RIVER FISHING, and MAINLINE AND LEADERS, alone will dramatically change the way you think about fishing.
I highly recommend reading the book Steelhead & Salmon Drift-Fishing Secrets. The book has so much information, and explains every little detail about how & when to fish.
I'll be doing recon trips, and posting pics leading up to the Puyallup opening in late August.

If you have any questions, or comments, please post.

Browns Point

Took a drive today to put the little ones to sleep. Whata ya know, we ended up driving to Browns Point to check it out. Looking to do some fishing a couple hundred yards off the point late summer. Check out this video I took while we were there.

Ignorant?

So, I tried to get some video & pics of the river today, but once I got down there, I couldn't figure out what was happening. The river level was extremely high. I figured going while the tide was at it's lowest point of the day ( 4 ft. ) would enable me to see the river very low (the portion of the river near the mouth ), even though the flow was quite high. I was wrong.

I was basing all of this off a fishing trip I took in 2009 when I could literally walk across the river in spots.
Well, looking back at that specific day, the tide was at minus 2 ft!
I'm going to wait till the river levels subside (end of summer), and the tide lands that low on a weekend before I retry this little experiment.

I'm trying to get shots of the 5th st. bridge, Kmart, Clarks Creek, Fruitstand, Swan Creek, and 11th st bridge locations.
