I've had amazing fishing the past 4 days, and I can't imagine it's been anything much less in the bay or for the QIN, because I've been catching brand new fish every day. Whether it's been cutthroat or coho I've been after, I've caught both, to super high quality, all on a 6-wt. fly rod. The coho I caught today beat the crud out of my hands when they ran (repeatedly); my poor old Tioga 6 doesn't really have much of what you'd call a drag these days, so palming has often been necessary...

Anyway, I'm much more pleased with this year's season compared to last, and I hope everyone else is enjoying good fishing.

And we are off to the races with the weather forecast again. 10/10 NOAA says a large event is going to arrive! So far they are 0 for 3 missing location and total rainfall so let us see what this one does. The storm is supposed to be several days long but the 10th has several locations around the Wynochee Dam getting nearly 2 1/2 inches in 24 hours. The pattern looks similiar to the forecast that did not come to pass a bit back soooooo who knows!

Everyone should remember it is nets 4 / 4 / 3 days for the next three weeks and QIN start at noon Sundays. The NT commercials will fill any openings to fill out the four days. NT's have more time but it is late Oct and we can look at it then.

Fishing definitely slowed down just above tidewater after Monday. Few if any new fish around, and what was around was tight to brush and tight-lipped. Typical for flows this low, I suppose. Fishing was pretty good higher up, but the fish were getting blushy and not so quick to bite as they were last week.

The high pressure system coming in should produce a prominent east wind and shut the bite down pretty good until it rains again (which per Rivrguy's post will happen soon). The QIN does appear to be benefiting from outstanding timing for their fisheries this season (which of course isn't great for the rest of us, but whatever). Anyone know how they did this past week?

Finally, I've caught nothing but hatchery coho and jacks so far. What are others seeing?

QIN fishing reports lag a week or more after pulling just depends on if they are communicating with WDFW and staff is on the ball.

Abot 50 / 50 H&W

Sounds good. I've been mostly fishing a river with a hatchery run that is usually weighted to the front end of the season, so I would expect to see mostly clippers early on.

I've NEVER seen any QIN catch totals that show/list "hatchery or wild" numbers or male and female numbers.

Its not like it wouldn't be valuable information, and maybe it is done. Maybe WDFW receives a breakdown, if they do, it is not posted on the WDFW web site.

Sports on the other hand....heaven help your ass, if your "punch card isn't filled out completely, and tough [Bleeeeep!] if you forgot your pen or your pen won't write on a wet punch card....

My punch card is always wet on the rivers.I can't get a ballpoint pen to write on it. I make an attempt and an officer can see that I tried. When I get it dried out I then write on it clearly.

Went out twice last week and caught nothing but hatchery fish! Literally zero wilds out of maybe 30 fish. Makes it easy to release those that donít quite make the cut. Interestingly, itís probably been a ratio of 6:1 females to males for me. Definitely getting some eggs for Springers!

Not sure if any of you got the email from WDFW, but it looks like theyíre considering adopting electronic catch reporting which would be nice as another option.

I did not see that but have some questions. Would the electronic reporting be in lieu of a CRC in the field or like we now do with Big Game and Turkey tags. Still need to mark it but then file it electronically?

I see ( and not just WDFW) getting on a really slippery slope of requiring direct reporting. If no service, you're in violation. I also don't like the app for regs. Again, if I am out in the tule-weeds and they change a reg I can't find out about it.

I just don't like the trend to requiring me to have smart phone of some sort just to do anything.

I think In Oregon you have the option of e tagging your fish or using conventional CRCs, not doing both. I would be surprised that there wouldn't be a non smartphone option for recording catch. As you point out there are many areas eg OP where cell phone reception is sketchy.

Oregons license allows you to tag offline. They recommend you open the app before you loose signal. I tagged a fish on the lower D with no signal no problem. Also decided at the last minute to dig razors at Gearhart, grabbed a license on my phone and was digging in 5 minutes. Iím a Washington resident when will this state line up? Yes a bore copy is still an option in oregon but I donít think too many retailers even offer it anymore.

On a side note I wasnít sure of a catch code yesterday and launched the fish Washington app without service, it eventually launched with a sync error but gave me the last downloaded regs and the catch code of the river I was on. Hey Olympia catch up youíre missing out on revenues.

Well the weather forecast is moving around. Tomorrow is supposed to be the biggy of a three day event with the total two inches plus maybe three depending on location. A couple of days break and then five days that total 6.54 in upper Satsop. It is the second one starting the 15th that is going to send flows way up! The three dayer starting today moves things up but the flows drop right back down. I do not think that will happen with the second event starting the 15th. Time will tell if NOAA has it right.

https://www.nwrfc.noaa.gov/weather/10_day.cgi?v=20200803v1

Just hit the home tab on the site linked after looking at the weather and it takes you right to the stream flows 10 day forecast.

I've been biting my tongue for a few days after your post Rivrguy but finally gave in. Your reports on NOAA"s weather predictions reminded me of a comment a lady friend made about snow in the western WA lowlands. She said it was just like sex; you never knew how many inches you'd get or how long it would last. Looks like that can be said about the rains and stream projections, too.

Interesting so far. Want to see something interesting take a look at this forecast. Keep in mind I never bet on this being dead on but rather showing trends. https://www.accuweather.com/en/us/aberdeen/98520/november-weather/336359?year=2023

Now that is one ugly November trend!

Well CM it appears NOAA got it somewhat right. Satsop was late on the rise went straight up and now flows are dropping down the same way. Upper Chehalis well short of the forecasted flows so it is going to be about when and where one fishes for water conditions. I guess the old saying don't like the weather wait and hour or two it will change is in play!

We had about an inch here. It came in waves of downpour and then sun. My plants are happy for the water. May have pulled the coho towards the Deschutes as have seen no jumpers since the rain got serious.
