    I'll be staying on Orcas Island's Wescott Bay for the next week and would love to put either my 6wt or 10wt fly rod to use.

    Now that I know it's not lingcod season, I'm looking for alternatives.

    I'd love to hop in a kayak and fish the bay, but have never one before.
    Would love some advice on what to fish for, (and how to fish for it)!

    Appreciated.

    You've never been in a Kayak Before, or you've never fished from one?

    Right on, it didn't seem like a good idea to try fly fishing if you've never kayaked before. I have no idea what you might catch there aside from some Sand Dabs, but I'm sure other will be able to help.
