Sport smelt dip-netting in the Cowlitz River was very good on Saturday

smeltThe sport bank dip-net smelt fishery in the Cowlitz River last Saturday (March 1) was good as folks tok advantage of the first opportunity in a few years.

“It was good last Saturday depending on where you were at,” said Joe Hymer, a state Fish and Wildlife biologist. “It took some one dip to get (a 10 pound daily limit), and others a few dips and you might get done, and maybe 20 minutes or so for others so it was pretty good.”

No more dip-netting are scheduled to occur, but state Fish and Wildlife and NOAA are in talks and reviewing the recent commercial and sport catches.

Both the commercial and sport catches were higher than anticipated.
