How to fish dick nite spoons

Well. went down to the puyallup on saturday evening, & saw lots of fish jumping down by the white river...couldn't get any to bite which can get a little frustrating. They seem to like it right along the pylons there....they were surfacing along the opposite shore quite a bit.
I figuring that's their "travel" lane up river, and there just shooting straight thru. Couldn't get a blue fox to operate correctly except a little lower down river, and couldn't get my corkies to float straight along the pylons. Made me start thinking about plunking right in that travel lane.

I'm gonna try out a couple different things this weekend a little farther up river. Excited to try eggs in the upper river which i've never tried, and I'm gonna try some dick nite lures, which i just ordered a couple days ago.

This video is pretty amazing...it's a fishing guide talking about dick nite lures, and how COHO LOVE 'EM...very informative.

  1. Pretty cool video...I almost tried putting a leader on my weight like he does but I got lazy and just started casting. Maybe that's why I don't ever catch anything. lol You thinking of hitting up the Carbon? I know some good spots if you need info let me know.

  4. Saw this video awhile ago also, but so far have only caught small trout on the Dick Nites. The Outdoor Line on 710AM Saturday mornings recommended Dick Nites, and vibrax spinners which is what led me to the video. Have yet to try the drop weight setup, but will probably give it a go this weekend

    BTW, thanks for putting this blog up - very helpful for newer people like myself. I also live in Puyallup, and it's nice to know that there are locals willing to help others.

  8. I.F. Go to the end of River ave. in Orting, there is a assess to the river and its a good spot right there near the parking. There is a gravel road the whole length of the Carbon (or most of it at least). From that parking area you can walk all the way to Voights creek or all the way down to the fork at Puyallup river. The carbon has some of the nicest areas Ive been to as far as surroundings. The Orting Bakery has really good coffee and baked goods also. Hope this helps out. :)

  10. Flying Hawaiian...yeah same here on Sunday I went down there...no fish at all. The water was as clear as Ive ever seen it, so many nice red colored rocks everywhere. But yeah I didn't even see any fish and Ive seen 100 fish at a minimum at that spot. (seeing them under water spawning)I sure would like to catch some fish...even if there small! lol. Good luck all.

  11. Thank you dan & Flying Hawaiian. Great info.
    I probably won't try the carbon until the end of the chum run on the Puyallup, but I'd like to hook into a steelhead or two after the new year.

    How long do the steelhead run? have you had any good success with 'em?

    Thank you both.

  12. Thought I'd let you all know -- google earth took new pictures here recently....the river looks nice. I use google earth all the time for looking for new spots, or spots to park.

  13. What's nice about the carbon is that you can see the pools whet they lie
    to make the next run. There are rapids, then slow water with pools, then rapids.
    I agree I.F. I might wait till the chum for here. I plan on going to the satsop or humps river.

  14. I went and looked at the carbon today cuz I've never been there, it looks nice & like Hawaiin said there is lots of pools. Anyway I been hitting the puke daily and seeing few caught. Those that are catching them are using spoons/spinners. I've been using dick nites and trying the leader method shown on the video but I can't seem to keep the lines from tangling. I'll be trying the white/puyallup fork in about an hour or two, I'll let you guys know what I see.
