Now Booking: Pink Salmon & Silver Salmon Trips
It's almost time for one of my favorite fisheries! One of which we only get to enjoy every OTHER year (odd numbered years)
That's right... The PINKS are coming! This is a wonderful fishery for everybody. Never fished before? Want to catch a salmon on your own rod, you hook, fight, and land!? Pinks are the fish for you! This year we will be fishing the Snohomish River for Pinks starting August 17th through September. We have a three fish limit per person, and normally run half day trips for these fish as the action is usually fast and furious! These salmon put up a great fight for the smaller stature, and come into the river in large numbers making the fishing great fun and normally pretty action packed. This is the trip I always recommend to people new to fishing, or with kids who get bored with trolling for trout or kokanee.
Overlapping with the pink salmon are the coho (silver) salmon. These fish are generally bigger than the pinks, but a little more elusive. We often use different tactics for silvers like trolling or casting plugs, floating eggs, and my favorite - Dick Nite Spoons! We will be fishing silvers in both the Snohomish and Skykomish Rivers for these fish. They will begin to come into the rivers in September and will continue through November, with the peak being in October. These fish are hard fighting and very exciting! They are my favorite fish to catch, fight, and eat! And we have a great river system for them.
A half day trip for these salmon is $150 a person, minimum 2 - maximum 4 people. If you want to make a full day of it, the price is $200 per person, again 2 person min, 4 person max. These are really fun trips and we usually see some wildlife too. in 2015 we saw deer, eagles, otters, minks, and even a bear!
