I would say that description matches what I'm seeing. Fish are either holding in tidewater or in places I can't find them. Had good fishing (for mostly the wrong species) Monday, and I finally nabbed a net-marked hatchery hen coho, just as I was getting ready to give up. (Looks like at least one got past the nets.) That was in one lower Chehalis trib. I walked a large section of the other major lower trib on the same day, and it was a kings only (and not many of those) show, with zero signs of moving fish. Nice afternoon for a walk, though.
So is a late push of kings on the Naselle reason to be optimistic that the fish are running late, or is it only good news because it means more kings in the Naselle?
