    I got on the water at 6am this morning. By 7am, I had landed one coho, lost three and had four follows. All on my pink coho popper. The fish were 5-6 pounds. It looked like everyone had one or two fish. I saw one 10-15 pound king landed and the checker told me one other was landed earlier. As usual, everyone was crowded into the north part of the point and there were a lot of boats very close in. I was the only fly fisher and found a lot of fly water that the gear guys can't fish effectively.

    I showed up at 10:15, and at 10:30 hooked a nice fat (guestimating) 26" coho. Figuring I was fat into the fish and still wanting to fish for the day I released it. Of course, got nothing else all day.:beathead:

    Hi Leland,

    Is your Coho popper the same as your Miwaki popper but with Pink polar bear fur?

    Thanks,

    Thomas,

    I use the larger head, Rainy Pee Wee Pop, a #6 Mustad 3407 or 34007, and a #4 Gamakatsu Octopus. I substitute salmon or pink hackle for the grizzly and delete the olive streamer hair or icelandic sheep but retain the peacock herl.

    Good luck,
    Leland.

    From mid morning until about 1p I would say it averaged 6 people fishing spread along both sides of the point. One other fly-fisherman. Occasional beach combers/dogs/etc but nobody got too close to the back-cast.

    Hey Leland, one hand or two hands?

    I've been shooting underhand casts with my Snowbee 44' head. It's fun. Draws some curious looks, though.

    I've been fishing a single-hander. Two handed rods with Outbound lines put my fly out beyond my ability to see it. Hell, I might as well have used a clouser! Besides, I would have missed the coho that were chasing candlefish at my feet the other day.

    Leland.

    Don't rain on someone's parade. Maybe Leland's info from three years and 1 1/2 months ago will hold true tomorrow...the crowds will be building.

    Now that's just plain low down! It's not April 1st. You had me going. I was kicking myself hard for leaving early today. Wind was horrible. Saw a couple of other members show up as I was leaving. I brought a silver shaker to hand and saw gear guy Tom shaking a sculpin off of his line. That was it.

    I remember fishing PNP a couple of days after this report came out, and it was awesome. Silvers were flopping all over the beach. Too bad it's not that way every year.
