I spent much of yesterday chasing after SRC in the Sound. The fishing was good using a shrimp pattern. Just before heading in, my last shrimp fly got hung up on the bottom and I lost it. So I tied on a trusty clouser minnow and decided to try one last spot. Hooked one SRC and it can off. It was now time to head home so I was reeling in and hooked a heavy fish what a surprise. The fish turned out to be a 27" approximately 8 lb. blackmouth salmon. I was using a 6 wt rod for the SRC so it took me a while to land it. Hooking it didn't take any skill or knowledge since I just happened to be at the right place at the right time. The fishing conditions were against hooking a chinook salmon as it was sunny, mid-day, shallow water(8-10 ft.) Sooner or later we all get lucky and hook into a large fish that we really don't deserve but I'll take them what that happens. My fishing buddy and I target chinook salmon in late summer during low light conditions at daybreak when they are near the surface or in shallow water(18 ft. or less). Once in a while we will get one but it is slow tough fishing.
