Warmwater Fishing at Chinook Landing

GerbilManBoa
Has anyone had luck on warmwater fishing at Chinook Landing or even with trout at chinook landing lately? I'm eager to cast my line!

yep. go there in the evening and you can do some catch and release for the run of 6 inch salmon smolts. use the smallest hooks you can get away with and a tiny bobber.the only place to catch any is at the boat launch by the docks. use redworms or powerbait for best results. remember , catch and release and tight lines! get back if you catch any. also, there wont really be any panfish action until may, but the water might be flooded...

really? fishing for salmon smolts? im not sure i agree with that

Ya I can't figure out why anyone would ever purposely target smolts. That's completely counter productive.

+1 - fishing for smolt is bad ju ju. Don't do it. And targeting smolt with BAIT is even worse. I hope homeboy was doing some chain yanking, and not serious about smolt fishing.

Has there been any good bass or catfish action there lately?

And yeah I think targeting smolts is a bad idea.

I think he was kidding as many of Gerbil's threads have received playful info and help. (Probably because there are so many)

targeting smolts is akin to throwing babies into extreme cage fighting (and hope they survive) - in my books. :naughty:

Or he might not know any better either. When I was his age I didn't have anyone to inform me of the ethics of fishing and I would've caught and kept them myself.
