First time posting in awhile. Went to Kennedy Creek along with half of the state of WA today! Anyway after scouting out the creek for awhile I found a slot in between a couple of nice guys that were hooking chums on a regular basis. I started out throwing a green, blue, black+ and chrome colored corky with green yarn and couldn't get them to even bump my line. Watched the other guys and noticed that orange and green combos were the ticket so I switched over and bam! Fish on! Unfortunately hooked the big buck in the back so I pulled it free. A few more casts and another hookup, this time in the lower jaw. A few quick powerful runs and I put him on the bank, just long enough to remove the hook and turned him loose. About a half hour later I got my second one to the bank, this one had actually almost swallowed my corkies and hook but I was able to pull it out with some needle nose pliers without hurting him. Hooked a couple of other fish but they pulled free. I probably saw more guys walking out with their limits than not. Great day on the water and the rain was only part time. Get 'em while they're there!

Sorry, no pics but then you know what chums look like anyway. :-)

Got there and found out we'd forgotten Brett's waders so were stuck with staying on the grassy point adjacent to the parking area. Not a bad spot. You can see the schools of chum coming up the creek, not the fish but the bow wave they make against the current. Pretty cool to see on the incoming tide. Tide turned just as we got there and within about 40 minutes went from a narrow creek to almost completely flooded over the mud flats. One guy got a fish that was just starting to turn from chrome to striped. Not a lot of fish tody. Saw maybe 2 schools come up. They swim by and they're gone. If you don't get one you wait till the next one. Saw a couple schools coming up then turn around and swim back out. Water is muddy so you can't see them. I'll have to learn the area and find out what the fish like. I put on a red and green plastic jig and got a hit but didn't hook it. Oh well. Slowed down so we went off to Summet lake to scout it out. Lost a couple of spinners there and decided to cut our losses.
Then went the the Humptulips. Got there kind of late and fished one of the boat launch areas, then moved to another take out on a gravel bar off Fitzpatrick Rd. where we noticed a big mud track coming out of the woods. Figured it was a fishing spot and I was right. That place ate about 8 hooks between my boy and me. Kind of a bummer. Tried spawn sacks, no luck. Only fished for about 45 min. and it got dark. It was basically a recon trip anyway. Didn't make it up to the hatchery so next time we'll start earlier and do that. I guess it was elbow to elbow up there.

Took the day off from work yesterday and went with a buddy to Kennedy Creek to check out the chum action. Arrived around 11:30 a.m., tide was still very low. Not much going on so we drove up to Hoodsport. Not a lot happening there and the tide was already too high to wade out and the winds were up too. So we drove back to Kennedy and fished the incoming tide. Was surprised to see so many people fishing on a Wednesday, guess it's a sign of our weak economy. Anyhow we fished till dark. I landed one around 6 lbs. and lost another bigger fish in about a 15 minute period. Then on my next cast I got a HUGE bird's nest in my reel and spent about 1/2 hr. untangling it. (ugh!) By that time most of the fish had moved through. Tide was dropping rapidly and it was getting dark. We walked out on the bar and fished the creek downstream for awhile. Had some bumps, my partner hooked a nice one but lost it. All in all it was a decent day, couldn't beat the weather!

Tight lines!

I had about an hour and a half lunch today, headed straight to Kennedy Creek. Not very many anglers willing to brave the wind and rain, but more room for me. The water was really muddy and moving a bit faster compared to over the weekend. I seen several barely alive Chums milling around here and there. I was using a small chartreuse corky and tuft of yarn with 1/4 oz bass casting weight. The wind made it very difficult to cast and detect any kind of fish. Luckily for me, the only bite I felt was when the wind died down. The fish wasn't too big, maybe 7 to 8 pounds, but it still had some nice silver color to her. There were about 10 anglers spread around the area and I did see 2 guys with fly rods bank 2. Pretty tough day of fishing. When I drove by the Mud Bay hole, there were more people fishing there than at Kennedy.

Headed out to Kennedy creek for the first time ever and I was pretty disappointed. I only landed 1 and it was disgusting, I didn't even want to touch it to take my hook out. I saw a guy leave with 2 10lb boots and another guy landed one, but was smart enough to throw it back. Just an FYI for those of you that have never been here before: the tide WILL strand you if you aren't paying attention. I realized just in time, and was able to wade through 4ft of water without any issues other than a few colorful metaphors and a near faceplant into the muddy water. Never again.....

After brief baby duty, my son and I left the house and arrived at Kennedy Creek. Low tide was a little after 10:00am, so we wet our lines about 8:45am. I talked with a nice fella who was leaving because a monster brute Chum broke his rod. I was excited. It was windy, rainy, cold, and muddy. Kinghunter was already fishing when we got to the hole. I was using orange and my son was using green. About a half an hour, that familiar bounce bounce pause FISH ON! I thought for sure everyone heard me, but unfortunately Kinghunter kept on fishing and my fish took him directly into his line. Really? I could only hope the hook would stay buried while we tried to untangle his web of jealousy. Kinghunter finally decided took cut his line and I resumed my battle. Man these things can fight. Kinghunter graciously netted my opponent. We fished for about an hour and nature put a whoopin on us as we called it a day. We also ran into JFKies and Larry- hope you guys got into some fish before that tide came in!! I drove home smiling because this is my first Chum. Picked up some apple, cherry and hickory wood chips on the way home as well to smoke my conquest.

Got to the Kennedy creek parking lot at 6am, and there was no other vehicles in the parking lot, should have known it was going to be slow. First light our poles were in the water, it was 31 degrees and our guides were freezing up on us. At about 8:30 after not even getting a bite we decided to go to the truck to warm up. 9:30 we were fishing again, at about noon I foul hook a monster chum and that was the highlight at kennedy for us. We saw maybe a total of 10 fish in the river or on stringers. Left the creek for hoodsport at about 1pm.

Met up with Kinghunter around 7am to fish the low tide. There were surprisingly a lot more anglers than I was expecting, but we found a nice spot along the bank by the 101 bridge. We both have never fished the whole plunking a corky and yarn technique, but we had our game faces on. The flow of the Creek was very slow, but we had no problem hooking up with leaves and debris, no fish. Kinghunter's lack of patience led him across the mud bog where most of the action we saw happening from our spot. I followed him about an hour later. He had caught 2 and released them both. They were pretty dark. His fish reminded me of those big buck Pinks I caught last month. Finally I was able to piece the puzzle together and felt that familiar tug on the end of my line. "Fish on!" Fish off.....If you have never fished here, be aware of the quick incoming tide. It came in a lot faster than we thought as it cleared out everyone. There were a few willing to brave it, but not us.
We both towards the end, were using a normal corky/yarn set up with about 3-5ft leader and about 1/2 an oz. I was using chartreuse and Kinghunter was using orange/red.
I am glad I fished here, I know now where to go and have confidence I will get fish.
Off to the Skok.......
