Humptulips Kings 10-30-11

I fished the Humptulips  with my dad Saturday  10-29-11 and Sunday 10-30-11 .
The graph was going straight up Friday night and it looked like the river was going to blow out, but we decided to check it out, and I am glad we did.
The river had gone up to 1,700 that night. We had less than a foot of vis  and a bunch of leaves in the water Saturday morning but the river was dropping and clearing fast, by noon we had perfect conditions and the fish were on the bite we caught several kings with a few bright chums mixed in  the river was full of chum. Our catch rate was about 65% bright kings 35% dark
The river had dropped all the way to 950 Saturday night  before beginning to rise again on Sunday. The river was on a steady rise all day on Sunday and  it was begining to color a bit by the end of the day, but the fish did not seem to mind. We again caught several  kings and a few chum but our catch rate was nearly 100% bright fish and we had some big ones mixed in. the fish were spread throw the whole river on Sunday and seemed to be on the move. We had our best results on eggs but we also hooked a few fish on jigs.
