Down Low on the Green
Tuesday, November 15, 2011
People often ask me where I fish on the Green. Yea sure we all love to kayak in the upper gorge and there is fishing up there but the prime fishing is lower in the system. So here is my description of the fishing from Mouth to Kent. Then in another post I will focus on Kent to Flaming Geyser and then finally FG to Howard Hanson.

Duwamish Mouth to Kent.

47.533480, -122.322786
- The 8th Street Bank. Fish love to hug the tug, so any boats docked up that are bigger than 100' are bound to have passing fish against them. Perfect for dropping jigs and bouncing them along the sides. Depth is around 10-25 feet depending on tides.

47.51369,-122.305674 - The sub station. People call it the fishing the sub etc.. Awesome spot. If I fish the duwamish I usually go here. The bend in the river is an amazing holding spot for fish. During mid tides fish stack up in here before moving out at the peak high. It is a sight to see even if you don't fish. usually it will get a good crowd. Because of the depth and distance to cast I will use buzz bombs here or a jig with a 1/2 oz tappered slip weight. If they are hugging the bank just a un weighted jig will do the trick. Spinners and other gadgets work great too. Drift fishing is not so great here because the bottom is deep and very very snaggy.

47.503363,-122.296501 - Tons of people go here to fish, been once. Yea there are fish but usually way way too many crowds. Again not the best for drifting but good spinners and jig water.

47.48988,-122.279651 - Allentown Bridge Hole. This spot is HOT. The water is uber deep still changes with the tides and holds fish waiting for jigs. If I am jig fishing on the duwamish I almost always hit this hole. It does get deep but folks drift it a bit too.

47.488311,-122.265586 - Allentown 5. Perhaps the best spinner fishing on the duwamish. Fish hold up pretty good here and when it rains your dry. Does see a number of fisherman but pretty hidden so don't be sharin this spot. If you go any time soon you will find 4 or 5 coho that are digging reds under the bridge at different tides. I have C&R'd all of them some of them have graced the pages of this site. Jigs work great here too. A little snaggy to drift.

47.467427,-122.251216 - The Fort Dent Rocks. This is perhaps the first Real Fishing spot on the Green since the Green really doesn't become the green until the Black River inlet which is just below this spot. Spinners Jigs and Drifting its all good.

47.439902,-122.245819 - The Depot Drift. Almost all Drifting, Sucks way to many people and not that great fishing but worth checking out.

47.433857,-122.262427 - The Brisco Bend. Awesome fishin. Drift, Spinners and Jigs, even pull a plug accross the bend. There are some snaggs but the beach gives great access. Mostly a wader fishing area but still worthy.

47.41285,-122.264637 - The 212th Riffle. Super Deep. Back bouncing eggs and shrimp is your game here. Plenty of water to fish and a little rapid that seems to make the fish hold up to attain. I don't fish Bait much so this isn't my spot of choice but I have taken a few here.

The spots inbetween 212th and James the DOJ are so many that it is not worth describing. Just walk down the Green River Trail and you will see all the little trails fisherman use down to the river. In my opinion most of this water is not worth fishing heavy but still check it out.

Until update 2 Kent to Flaming Geyser !!
