Puyallup River netting for chum salmon

The Puyallup opens on Sunday, at noon, for netting of chum salmon. Here's a link provided by one of the readers of last year netting of the chum. http://blip.tv/nwifc-video-stream/pt-chum-test-fishery-10-10-movg-4363075   Thanks Emmett.

I'll still be trying up river this weekend, because I'm still wanting more silvers, and it'll give the lower river a chance to fill up with chum.

Good luck fishing this weekend.

BUT I did manage to catch a dolly varden about 12 inch's on Thursday. Very pretty fish....put him back to catch another day. I think Im going to head to the river today as well. What are you all up to?

  6. Hit the puyallup yesterday and wrangled my first silver of the year. Caught on #3 vibrax. Saw one jumping in a pool right under 512 bridge so started casting right along seam between flow and the pool. a dozen casts later pulled in nice 8 pounder.

  10. I do like the Penn Fierce spinning reel, as I have a Penn 750 spinning reel because that is what I use in Hawaii. I have tried my friends shimano clarus spinning rod 9ft and it is very nice. it has a lifetime in store guarantee. That is my next rod, I currently have a 8 ft ugly stik (med action).

    As far as netting, I heard the natives were netting high up the river and someone called the poaching hotline and the game wardens showed up and told them to leave.

    I will going out again on Thursday (day off).
