The reports that we are receiving from the lower Skagit River has been nothing short of outstanding for pink salmon anglers. The single biggest problem has been finding a good place to bank fish. Though the river has dropped a great deal since the opener it is still quite high and much of the bar areas are still covered by water making it difficult for bank anglers to find a spot to fish. The bank anglers are plunking with a spin n glow and sand shrimp combination and it is taking 4 - 8 ounces of lead to keep it in place depending upon the flow in the area you are fishing. The boat anglers are doing much better as they can access a greater amount of river than a bank angler can. The boat anglers are finding good results anchoring up on a current seam in 3 -6 feet of water and plunking with a spin n glow shrimp combo or TBS (Thin Bladed Spoons) such as FST's of Dick Nites or twitching 1/4 - 1/2 oz pink lead head jigs tipped with either a small piece of sand shrimp or coon stripe shrimp. Most boat anglers that I have spoke with have had no problem in getting their 4 fish limits recently.
