King Salmon Bite Hot on Goodnews River

Capt. John Kumiski

Goodnews River - Freshwater Fishing Report

Goodnews River Fishing Report from Spotted Tail 7/4/10

Happy Independence Day to all! I hope it was safe for everyone.

The king salmon have been on fire this week, with many days bringing double digits in numbers per boat and many fish in the 25-40 pound range caught. Effective plugs include the Wiggle Wart and the Hot Shot. Kings were eating flies too, with the articulated leeches inn a variety of colors doing the deed. Don Kipnis and his buddy Lee got several on 1/2 ounce DOA CAL jigs, chartreuse heads and tails, with two of them being 38" and 40". It's going on.

Chums and sockeyes are pouring in, too, more every day. I don't understand why chums get such a bad rap. They're tiger salmon! Gabe Nyblad says, "The egg drop this year should be a good one." That event should start in two to three weeks. Dollies and trout! Trout and dollies! Speaking of dollies, Don Kipnis got a 27 inch dolly on a jig from my boat a few days ago, a beautiful, colored up fish.

Trout fishing has largely been ignored because the kings have been hot, but the fish are eating good and we're catching a few while salmon fishing.

I saw two bears this week, good long looks at both of them. Both looked thin and scruffy. That will change soon, as the berries ripen and the salmon start dying off.

The weather's nice and I hope to go hiking this evening.

Embrace simplicity.

Life is great! I still love my work, lucky me!

Life is short- go fishing!
