We here at "John's Guide Service" are looking forward to and already seeing some of the great run
forecasts for our 2013 and 2014 Salmon and Steelhead fishing seasons as well as
our late 2014 summer and fall hunting season!!
- September - November 2013; "Coho-Mojo" time again...Always great
Silver Salmon fishing here on the Skagit River!! Early September is
always a great time to get out for some early archery deer hunting as
well. In November get ready for some great catch and release fishing
too on the pound for pound hardest fighting salmon around as our Chum
Salmon run returns in November as well.
- December - January 2014; Still expecting quite a few Silver Salmon around this December the way things
are looking right now and they will be mixed in with our Winter Steelhead returns to the Skagit System this year. Our Skagit River hatchery steelhead returns should start kicking off here around Thanksgiving!
- June - July 2014; "Springer Time" Some of the best King Salmon
fishing the Pacific Northwest has to offer right here on the Skagit
River along with some great catch and release opportunities on some
- August - September 2014; Looking forward to
another great Black Bear hunting season... Following one of the toughest bear seasons we've seen since 2009 we should be looking at an upcoming stellar 2014 season, especially if it is looking anything like our 2010 season did.

all of our above fishing and hunting opportunities!!... Give us a call
