Pierce County, WA – Northwest anglers are getting in on the early Puyallup river salmon fishing. So far the Salmon are coming up in small schools and decent numbers of Pinks and a few Chinook are being landed. There have also been a few rumors of the occasional Puyallup river Steelhead being caught.

The lucky anglers in the cover photo had a few Pinks on the stringer when I arrived and they reported a couple Chinook being caught over the weekend as well.

Northwest angler William Smith displayed his stringer with a couple nice, bright Pinks that are sure to entertain Will’s smoker once he gets home.

Over the next couple weeks the fishing should only get better on the Puyallup. If you’re looking to beat the crowd, now is a good time to hit the river and get in on the fun.

Once the run gets hot! it will be hard to find a good spot without being crowded especially on the weekend. If you can swing it, I recommend fishing the Puyallup on the Weekdays. You won’t be fishing alone but you won’t get smothered out either.
