It's just past(or before) the sewage treatment plant and the SPCA kennel. White building with brick arches with a white trailer parked out front. I can't remember the name either. Closed on Tuesdays(the only day I tried going there).

Thanks guys. Tackle shop recommended green and the flies worked well. Caught a couple on the fly and lost a few on my 6 pound test leader. I'm going to try again tomorrow on my way to Meritt for the weekend.

Oh my god have a look under the gov't street bridge. It's just loaded with pinks. What a spectacle of nature! The mamquam is jamm packed with salmon right now.Even above the highway bridge. It's good to see a decent amount of returning fish after the spill in '05.I got to take my kids up to see it.

Hey, I saw U there today. You are a "hotrod". I was the guy struggling w/ the 5wt only catching a few. If I only had my drift rod... But, I'm learning something new. Yeah, the Pinks were thick below the rail bridge, too. They were in 2005 post spill, as well. I just wonder how the rest of the system is doing. They were getting harrassed a bit in that pool & fouled by some. Below the confluence I saw 2 dead chrome Pinks w/ a couple puncture holes in each near the dorsal fin, obviously the work of the two seals out there. It made me wonder if they survive being fouled in the body. Obviously the seal does more damage... Of course there are a lot of variables, but are Pinks more vulnerable when wounded than some of the other 4 Pacific salmon, or Steelhead?

I was working up in Sqamish today and poked my head over the bridge on the Maquam. Lots of fish but all spawners. Sad to see a couple of guys casting buzz bombs into the thick of those fish which were all colored and mid spawn...guess they don't know they're doing their business, not biting.
