Water Temperature: 56 to 57
Turbidity: Varies Greatly From Brown Out To Heavily Stained
Fishing Pressure: Moderate
NOAA Weather: Ten Day Forecast
Northwest River Flows: River Flows

Quinault Tribal Fishery Schedule: http//www.quinaultindiannation.com/fishingregs.htm
Commercial Harvest by Week: QIN & NT Nets
The conditions one finds will vary greatly dependent on fishing location and water conditions so one should watch the weather. The Olympic side of the basin is forecast for 9 inches or more in the ten day forecast but Chehalis is around 4. Fishing is slow to red hot depending on your fishing location in the basin and those caught are in great condition. Water temperature above tide water is down to 54 and 57 mid tide water so water temperature should not be a factor. The commercial nets and dirty water are the major limiters at the moment along with the fact few Chum are showing yet.
Rain is here and hit the Ten Day Forecast & River Flows to get a better idea of what is coming.
