Puyallup River Opening!

The Puyallup river opens on Wednesday, August 1st, above freeman road. Freeman road is directly across from B&B Auto Sales on River Road. As long as you are up river from Freeman Road, fishing is legal.

The lower river will open on the 16th of August.

Good luck fishing!

Keeping a journal for fishing

One thing I started doing on a much more regular basis last year was keeping good records of every fishing trip. I'm realizing the more detailed I am, the faster the learning curve will be.

In every fishing book I read, JOURNAL KEEPING is a constant "must do" according to the experts.

So....I made this little form, which I'll be using, and hopefully it helps you as well. Here's a picture of what the form looks like once it's filled out. I'm going to be keeping mine on a e-diary/blog, but it would work to print out, and keep in a binder as well.

Hope this helps

Carved tree on Puyallup River (5th st. bridge)

Went down to the river by 5th st. bridge for a quick walk, and was amazed at the beautifully carved tree, right next to 5th st. bridge. Here's a couple pics, and a link to the news story from a couple months ago.  Awesome job! Definitely worth going down & taking a look!

So these are the pre-season numbers from North of Falcon on the Puyallup River. I'm still looking for the numbers from 2011 on the Chinook, and Chum so we can do a comparison.

If anyone has a link, I'd love to update this chart.
Looking forward to getting on the river here real soon......Have a safe 4th of July!
