    I certainly pay attention to the moon phase for my freshwater trout fishing, especially my stillwater fishing.

    I'm new to SRC fishing in Puget Sound. Is the moon phase a factor, other than its impact on the tides? Do SRC feed more at night with a fuller moon and, therefore, feed less actively the next day?

    Good question. I don't know. But I don't pay attention to my horoscope either....

    I've noticed this effect on summer coho in the North Sound after full moons, but never paid much attention to it for cutts. Worth considering though!

    If you stay home because the moon isn't right, the tide is wrong, the wind is blowing, the barometer has changed, you won't catch anything and you won't learn anything.
