The picture from the link shows where i fished.

I fished in the 112th St this morning but no luck. I use the drift setup in the current, but got snagged a few times. I didn't see any fish in that area when the tide is low. However, on the other side of the bank, I see so many fish jumping, but there is no current. So i used bobber setup, but also no luck.

What are the recommend setup for beginner to fish in water with little to no current? I never caught any salmon in my life

For still water I use spinners, twitching jigs or spoons in that order. The #4 Blue Fox Spinner with a blue body is a classic you can't go wrong with. For twitching jigs use 1/2 oz to 3/5 oz jig in pink.

DiBando - I would recommend booking a trip with a Guide for a River Bank lesson in how to properly target, approach and limit out in this fishery. Not only will this guide give you a tackle consultation with technical instruction, he will also show you several other productive spots that are very exclusive and held as a secret with professional guides. As an added bonus every trip he guides is filmed with a minimum of three GoPros from various angles and for an added fee he offers audio narration and a well written essay of the adventure for use on his Blog. I could name other Guides that are less likely to produce results but that would be a conflict of interest and most don't have any skills with a Camera.

If you do choose to do this alone I would suggest being careful because there is a Group patrolling this area called "HOG" and had this guide not been a MMA fighter they would have tried to harass me for accidentally snagging fish.

Either way, GOOD luck and TIGHT LINES!

Wow my local river. I have caught countless numbers of salmon in that river. Give me a call and I will get you into some fish.

First trip to the river this season and first puke report of the year. Still waiting for the nookies to show up? But, broke the ice for fall silvers this year already, so not bad. Let the slaying begin!

  Catching and releasing a skamania strain steelhead. The water temperature was around 56 degrees so the fish sway away perfectly fine and healthy. Caught on a spawn sac under a float. Recorded using a GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition camera.

I always put my hands in the gills of fish I'm going to release.

The newest major entries to the Tacoma retail scene — a large sporting-goods emporium and a national crafts retailer — have announced their opening dates.

Tacoma’s two major and long-awaited fall premieres will both feature giveaways, snacks and opening-day bargains.

The Tacoma store will be the company’s sixth in Western Washington.

• Look for giveaways including gift cards, tackle boxes, mugs and keychains when Bass Pro Shops opens its first Washington location Oct. 23.

The opening will be preceded by an “Evening of Conservation” featuring representatives from conservation groups including Ducks Unlimited, Quails Forever and the National Wild Turkey Federation.

This is how the Quinault Nation people cut the salmon to cook outside next to the camp fire. We use alder and sometime cedar or fruit woods when doing so.

First fillet the salmon, butterfly style, removing the spine but leaving the salmon in one piece.

I'm 4-2 on the steelhead this year so far. Hooked 6 and landed 4. Pretty stoked on this one tho, had to trek through a bunch of sticker bushes and get wet for this guy. Good times.

  20 million sockeye salmon are returning into the Fraser River in 2014! In this video feature we are right in the middle of the action! We join Bon Chovy Fishing Charters in Vancouver at the Fraser River mouth, trolling for thousands of sockeye salmon which are staging for the right tide before their river migration. The action is jam packed, it is a sockeye salmon bonanza!
